    Is New Zealand the best place to go for mma talents and training right now?

    Guys like UFC MW Champ Israel Adesanya, UFC top contenders Brad Riddell and Dan Hooker leading the way.

    Not really.

    Besides Adesanya and Riddell there isn't much top talent. I don't rate Hooker particularly highly.

    That said, it's a beautiful country with a great prime minister.

    Wood. I heard they have little to no covid too. Those hookers are as good as their dairy cows, top notch!

    Would be hard to fuck up a first world country with a population that small and isolated

    Dagestan is done. Old news. Khabob retired and so did their claim to fame.

    I watch a good amount of regional MMA and there's loads of prospects from there.
