    He's Native Hawaiian, Samoan and English. Andre Fili is also mixed with white and has the same body type.

    Hawaiian is not a race, or an ethnicity. It’s a state.
    Calling yourself Hawaiian when someone asks your ethnicity just makes you look stupid.

    It's an English surname, but who knows how he came to have it.

    English: habitational name from any of the numerous minor places so called, from Old English hol ‘hollow’, ‘sunken’ + weg ‘way’, ‘path’. In Ireland, it has sometimes been Gaelicized as Ó hAilmhic (see Hulvey).

    - A hollow way is a sunken lane

    - inner-city district in the London Borough of Islington
    - Holloway Road, a road that bisects the district
    - Holloway Prison, originally a mixed population prison, but now a female-only prison
    - Holloway (ward), an electoral division of the London Borough of Islington
    - Upper and Lower Holloway, places in the London Borough of Islington

    Yes damn near all


    Man sherdog always has a lot of mental gymnastics with guys trying to claim American fighters

    You could literally trace any American fighter to another country if you go back far enough lol But they are still American first and foremost.

    Weidman has German and Irish heritage.

    Stipe has Croation heritage.

    Uriah Faber Dutch, Irish, Italian heritage

    Nate Diaz Mexican and English heritage

    Cain
    has Mexican heritage.

    Randy Couture
    has French-Canadian (great-great-grandfather), English, some German, and Dutch heritage.

    Luke Rockhold has English ancestry

    Ronda
    has English, 1/4 Trinidadian and Grenadian (including African, Spanish, and English), 1/16th Polish, as well as German and Scottish heritage.

    Forrest Griffen Irish ancestry



    There all American, though. It's simply their ancestry.

    i guess native americans should just call themselves americans, instead of whatever tribe they are affiliated in.

    by definition, ethnicity is state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition. native hawaiians are polynesian and have their own unique language (no-not pidgin) and culture. they were hawaiian before hawaii was a state

    also why I thought he was better looking that most of his peers.

    Same with Bruce Lee, he was better looking than most of his peers.... because he was a quarter white
