    You might be getting that from people who live out side of the states. People in the u.s are taught in schools and t.v that thay are not American if there ethnic bacground Is from some where else rather born there or not , and are told to rep that other country. Even if thay can’t live in that other country becouse it can’t support them, can’t speak the language and never steeped foot in that country . People out side of the states with the exception of parts of Europe and Canada are incourged to apreacate the country they live in and people in that country .

    Maybe. It would be awesome to see a UFC-card in Nigeria, for the sake of marketing. Put Adesanya, Usman, and Ngannou on the main card.

    Can't say it would earn them a lot of cash directly, but it would be interesting

    That doesn't really mean much when you are malnourished. Look at what happened when the french fed baguettes to Ngannou.

    The UFC has a prime opportunity to invade parts of Africa and recruit these child soldiers and turn them into A-level athletes using the UFC performance center.

    Africa is the most genetically diverse continent where neighboring tribes can be as genetically divergent as a Frenchman to an eskimo. Nigeria as a whole is shorter than other subsaharan nations but there are ethnicities within it that are tall.

    Sudan's average height is less than 6 feet, but the Dinka tribe has an average male height of 6'4(!). While Kenya has an average height of 5'8 but its Masai population averages 6'3.

    So Africans as a whole are not tall, but its tall ethnicities are the tallest populations in the world.

    It means you're not gonna see a Jon Jones on every corner, here and there you're gonna see a Demetrious Johnson.

    They still make fine sportsmen, they have great athletes in the Olympics and soccer players.

    You don't need to see a Jon Jones on every corner, you just need enough to fill the UFC up with.
