    I remembered a time when Brazil dominated the UFC and had multiple champions. But now there are no male Brazilian UFC champions nor even a no.1 ranked Brazilian fighter. So who will be the next Brazilian UFC champ? And why do you believe that they have declined?

    Brazil can't even win the WC in soccer/football any more. Neither are they in contention. I guess it's a general decline.

    Paulo Costa will be the next Brazilian champ in 2019.

    After that no one for a while.

    I don't think Brazil declined just that other countries improved. They started training mma at earlier ages. The best is still yet to come. Soon we will see guys that have been training since they were kids

    MMA isn't a top 3 sport in any country.

    Chris Cyborg and Amanda Nunez are Champions if you count WMMA.

    Influx of wrestlers—with legit defensive grappling—at top levels of most weight classes is the answer.

    Hell no... It's gained some popularity, but it's no where near the big four which is...

    Football
    Baseball
    Basketball
    Hockey

    I would say it would be fair to place it in the top 10. By popularity I would say sports as of right now in the US would go...

    Football
    Basketball
    Baseball
    Hockey
    Nascar
    Golf
    Soccer
    Tennis
    Boxing
    MMA

    Russia rules it now, but Paulo Costa is carrying the whole country on his big muscular shoulders.

    Ever heard of NBA, NFL, MLB, WBA?. Hell even NHK, Golf and Soccer are ahead. MMA is paying well for one hundred Americans, why would anyone with a choice get into that shit.
