    How far the sport is from the dark ages !! remeber when all you had were Americans, Brazilians, Russians, and some Dutches ?
    I remember, on this forum, years ago, that someone asked "why no Africans in mma ?" . At the time, I was living in Algeria so I was familiar with the logistical obstacles faced in Africa.
    A cunt then posted a picture of a starving African kid, joking that he was the future HW ufc champion !

    Years later, an imposing terrifying figure came from a lifetime of misery and hunger, and stood on a pile of broken bodies to claim the supreme combat sport prize, representing himself and his continent.
    He's a preview ! wait for the future fighters from Senegal, Ivory coast, Algeria, Morocco or Nigeria ... wait for the Mongolians, the Kazakhs, the Azars, the samoans or the Maoris ... So much potential !!

    It's not that amazing since he trained in Europe then the US. Obviously there are people with athletic ability in every country in the world; the thing is there is only high-level MMA training in relatively few of them, and none of them are in Africa. It would be amazing if a country in Africa produced a contender; what I mean by that is if a guy did all his training in an African gym.

    Agreed. If Ngannou defeats Stipe (which I think he probably will despite being a fan of the champ) he will have overcome astounding adversity en route to his championship.

    There’s no doubt growing up in a shithole country like Ngannou did would give him a visceral energy and drive that the rest of us could never imagine. Combat sports have traditionally been dominated by those with the lowest socioeconomic origins, because they’re the ones with nothing to lose, and no other options in life. We’re seeing that shift again recently with great fighters emerging from Africa, the Middle East, and Russia.

    That’s a hard mentality for a western athlete to overcome even using a technologically superior training program, but in Ngannou’s case, he’s got the foundation of “shithole country...don’t wanna go back” drive , combined with all the benefits of European and American training and nutrition.

    This might be the new standard if he’s successful tonight.

    Next will be a champion from India too! Should make for interesting times when it truly is an international sport.

    Sad thing is he probably wouldn’t be where he is today without actually moving to and living in France.

    exactly, but things are evolving...
    you've athletes from a lot of countries who weren't even considering mma as a real sport in which they could make a living. Nowadays, there's a growing interest and investments in mma, grappling or bjj in a lot of them.
    Of course, it will take time and dedication, along with money, but the talent is indeniable !

    I've rolled with a senegalese wrestler (Uza, quite famous in his country) and despite being 20 kg heavier than him, man ! amazing strenght and coordination !!
    they are freaks of nature, training on the sand and used to lift and throw human bodies since chidhood...
    they are big stars in Senegal, filling stadium and shooting commercials. the guys like Yekini, Bala gaye (1 &2), Tyson, Bombardier, or 10000 Problèmes are making 5 figures (in euros) to fight, and as much money from sponsors or donations (from rich fans). the "Lutte sénégalaise" has a mystical dimension too, just like sumo.
    Once some of them take interest in mma, and with the right training, they will prove themselves a challenge for a lot of unsuspecting fighters !
