    Combat sport culture in the uk has to change. To have a more competitvenes in mma. As from a historical view catch/ folk wrestling here in the north of England was 1 of the birth places. However popularity been winded down to obscurity. And none of that culture remains in the UK. Whereas boxing because of the money and Olympics has risen. Even so judo, jiu jitsu there are not as many classes as like cor muay thai and karate.

    We should introduce wrestling in British schools.

    I disagree. Brits have an extensive background in football hooliganism which is the closest form of combat to cage fighting. They just don't travel well.

    Wrestling hasn't been popular here since the Attitude Era. That's the problem.

    UK is obsessed with soccer or futball or whatever you call it. Yes, the US is obsessed with watching idiotic basketball and football, but not actually engaging in those sports. Anyone can engage in playing soccer.
    I suppose our population is big enough to allow at least 75% of the population to be retarded while having enough left over to do real things and real sports. You guys don't have enough to spare.

    We'll just stick to taking over boxing and let the rest of you fight for scraps in the mma circuits....
    Don't worry though, when we fancy some cake, we'll come and take the whole damn thing.
