Is it me or do Brazilian fighters seem more humble than others?

    Maybe its the broken English but Brazilian fighters always seem to praise their opponents a ton and don't really trash talk. Same can be said for Japanese fighters too I suppose

    Japanese fighters are actually humble. You can tell by how their fans act.

    Brazilian fighters just can't trash talk very well in English, they're actually very dishespectful, you can tell by how dishespectful they are by the way their fans act. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Not that there's any problem of course, I prefer Brazilian fans way more than boring ass vanilla Japanese fans.

    The subject of this thread is Brazilian fighters, not their fans. I mean if we're going by fan base, American fans are dogshit judging by Sherdog.

    I'm gonna say no...

    They're just not great at talking shit but they have a major superiority complex.

    A little. Believing in Jesus while living in a 3rd world country tends to do that.

    I'm sure the capacity for shit talking is just fine. Maybe it is the broken English, but alot of fighters who speak perfect English don't praise their opponents as much as Brazilians seem to

    Nothing but humility in the 450 Gracie BJJ centers in the US!

    The apples don't fall far from the trees. Fighters are not some special caste of people separate from the fans. How fighters act in front of the camera doesn't mean anything, it could just be PR. You can tell how people from a country generally act by looking at how the fans act when they're in a group and therefore anonymous. That's a much better representation.

    In terms of fan douchebaggery, it goes

    Japanese << American < Brazilian

    Japanese fans and simply the most respectful by far. Never boo anyone, always quiet.

    American fans are second best, they're much worse than Japanese fans, but at least they don't collectively chant death and actually do cheer for foreign fighters when they win spectacularly

    Brazilian fans are the worst, the tell foreign fighters to die, call Asian fighters small penis, and when their guys lose they become deathly quiet no matter how amazing the fight was

    That should tell you about how the fighters are. Japanese fighters >> American fighters > Brazilian fighters in terms of hespect

    But in terms of entertainment Brazilian fans are the best and Japanese fans are simply dog shit. I want fans to cry and scream not be catatonic

    I don't get this joke about Brazilians using steroids. More Americans have been busted than Brazilians. And even when you break it down to percents of total fighters per country, Brazil is just slightly ahead of the US in PED busts.

    That's like posting an image of a plane crash in response to someone saying air travel is safe. Your point is?
