    So I don't know if this has been explained here yet since I'm not on here too often, but I saw a thread or two about this and figured it might as well get answered. While I didn't go to the fights, on another website I'm on somebody who was there explained about the crowd, here is what he said...

    Hopefully this can clear up some of the confusion, this wasn't about JDS as a person, this was a Mexico vs. Brazil thing that went a little to far and hurt JDS in the process. Hopefully he has had this explained to him since then since I'm sure it hurt a ton to hear those boos after going a tough 5 rounds. I don't think it was right what the fans did, I'm not trying to excuse it, simply explain it so people don't go with the whole "Oh it's the stereotypical American Tapout jock that is drunk and pissed off."

    As a person, JDS is a brazilian. The booing was racially charged. It was a direct attack on JDS and his home country. This is worse than Chael Sonnen's attack on Brazil.

    yes everyone must act like the Japanese. Who cares how much money you paid for tickets, voicing your opinion about a fight is a no no.

    Btw anyone who watches boxing knows that Mexicans flock to Vegas for the big combat fights and they are constantly booing or trashing fighters opposing their favorite fighters.

    How is that better? Instead of booing the man in a personal way, they are booing him in an impersonal way for being Brazilian.

    I'd rather people boo me because they hate me, or how I fight, or any other number of things....than be booed because of some stupid shit like my race, which has nothing to do with anything in the history of anything ever(beyond a bunch of prejudice fuck-wits pretending like it somehow magically mattered).

    All about respect. Save your opinion for in-between fights. Go anywhere in the world (almost) and they'd tell you they think American tourists are the worst. "Americans are so OBNOXIOUS."

    It's like at a concert people singing on top of the band's vocals. Shut the fuck up, I didn't pay to hear you sing.

    Shut the fuck up, I didn't pay to hear your booing.

    Still ignorant to boo while Rogan was interviewing JDS, he was just on the wrong end of a lopsided beatdown, give the man credit.

    I take it you'd have preferred he used the word "ethnically"?

    I'm still highly offended and angry that they booed Joe Rogan.

    It'll happen, if that's any consolation.

    The term 'race' is usually based on the similarity of physical traits within a certain group of humans (usually skin color). Brazil is not ethnically homogeneous (if anything, it's quite the opposite). So 'Brazilian' is not really a race nor an ethnicity either, it is a nationality.
