    How many can you name?

    Francis
    Manuwa
    Romero.


    And Manuwa has American citizenship anyway I think.

    I really can't think of too many non American black fighters.

    I guess according to the ufc they arent really black if they arent American.

    If Romero is black then 80% of the Brazilians are black too

    Probably because America has more black people then most other places. Other then obviously Africa, but there aren't many fighters from Africa. But there are plenty "black" Brazilian fighters.

    But I have literately never even thought about it until now.lol Who cares.

    Um they are... (and Romero is Cuban).

    The average person doesn't know their elbow from their asshole, and has no understanding of the difference between race and nationality.

    Blacks are only 12% of the population.

    There are more black American champions than there are white American champions. And people used to say that black people were naturally bad at MMA, like you needed European strongman genes to win in the sport. Lmao who's winning now?????

    Lol. I've heard (I think from Bernard Hopkins) that MMA was created b/c white guys couldn't win at boxing.
