    This is monumental achievement actually, since majority of people there think MMA is barbarism.

    Ali-esque; transcending sport to bridge social divides.

    This is great news actually.
    It means that MMA is in the mainstream in NZ.
    In Poland Joanna wasn't even in the news when she won the belt.

    There was more athletic ability on display from the All Blacks in their losing effort in 2019's Rugby world cup than the entire history of NFL.

    LOL Please amuse me, what’s the “bigger picture”?

    And Who hates Izzy lol? Just ridiculing this overblown perception New Zealand’s importance to MMA... they have like two fighters in the UFC and one of them doesn’t even consider himself a Kiwi lol.

    Fuck Izzy.
    My only contribution to this thread.
    He is the ONLY fighter in the world that I hate with part good reason, part blind hatred.

    He won sportsman award in a country that doesn't recognize his sport. He beat the system, not just competition.
