Do you think UFC cares about nationale diversity in the roster?

    If there's not perfect equity across the roster with equal representation from all nations then it's white supremacy.

    Noone is talking about that, what a bizarre comment.

    Obviously a post being facetious.

    Oh, well just for future reference it was about a 2/10 post.

    Back when Pride was around, the UFC roster was overwhelmingly almost all American. I don't think they should have any kind of quota, I do understand in order to grow globally they are looking for more foreign fighters (eg like OP said, China & Mexico)

    Well I think a lot of ACA top guys are either tried to get into UFC and failed (Rasulov, Vakhaev, Goncharov, Kerimov for example) or said that they are not leaving (I think LW champ AAA said something along the lines that he will go to UFC if ACA tells him to go there). Plus, recent example of Reznikov -- if you an ACA fighter, better not complain and not talk about leaving.

    I think RCC guys are open to leave for a bigger promotion, but this promotion is owned by oligarch so I am not sure if it's a profitable thing to sign with UFC (I think said oligarch also holds boxing events, has a gym and Road to RCC show).

    OFC guys are open to leave too but I think multiple champs there are not Russian? Like, Uzbekistani, Kyrgyzstani, Tajikistani.

    Forced diversity is something championed by racist bigots.

    Yes as a Canadian it's easy to see they try and keep 1 token canadian for each class as soon as they get too 2 one is suddenly expendable.

    You're looking at this all backwards the ufc doesn't care how many Americans are on the the roster it's the 50% minimum from other countries they have earmarked to grow the sport if they get more international talent on a budget they will.

    Americans happily watch conor or khabib or Whittaker or gsp other countries don't.

    Problem is 75 of them don't want a 12/12 3 fight deal.

    as long as you bring money and casuals they don't care. Look at what khabib did and Chimaev's been groomed as a potential star.

    Somebody flag this motherfucker as a UFC shill.... can't stand that Sherdog is infested with these Paid Promotional Posters from the UFC.

    These are the same guys that crap on the fighters for asking for more money and post random shit about "why a union in the UFC is bad" or "Fedor was overrated"...

    Come on Sherdog, you're better than that!
