    McGregor, GSP, Brock, and Chuck Liddell are the only ones most of my family know. My grandpa knows a few more bc he watches fights with me sometimes.

    Fedor, because I have this book at home. Took me a while to convince my dad that this chubby Russian is the baddest man in the world

    Most of my friends know Yoel Romero cause I made sure they know about the Soldier of God.
    None of them know who Khabib is and none of them have said anything about Mcgregor since almost half a decade now.

    Also MMA really losing relevancy here despite Austrians finally entering the UFC. Our media doesn't report on it and doesn't support our fighters, which is why Rakic now chose to use the Serbian flag.

    Fedor, but that’s only because of how much I force them to watch his fights

    GSP, but I'm fairly sure everyone in Canada knows who he is. Hell, even my senior citizen parents recognize him.

    Other fighters: Chuck, Conor, Black Beast, Mark Hunt, Joanna, Rose, Shevchenko sisters, and Gina.

    My brother follows MMA but that's it. A good buddy of mine went to high school with Sean O'malley.

    None. MMA has next to no mainstream penetration in Denmark.

    Your grandpa watches ufc? That’s awesome. Wish mine would watch with me. But on the other side my parents/family know absolutely nobody. But wife and kids know most because I make them watch it every weekend lol.

    yeah he was a big boxing fan back in the day, and when I was a kid watched WWE with me... so naturally he liked the UFC. He only really likes LHW and HWs though. Dude was a big Liddell and BJ Penn fan back in the day though.

    I would say GSP because everyone in Canada knew about him during his run. He got a lot of press in Canada including Athlete of the year etc. Thats 40 million plus all the other people around the world.
