    Kind of unrelated but if Alvarez fights Khabib he totally needs to come out to this...

    This is a multi national sport so I don't see that ever happening

    they play both national anthems of the competitors in the title fight....^^

    plus it makes it feel like for damn ever since they will probably add it in and not cut out some of the other bs that already takes forever to get through

    i feel your spirit, but all those anthems on top of walkout songs would make pay-per-view go in till 2 a.m. I think

    can't stand this idea
    like that they are individuals
    rather than part of a team or only about national pride

    Na this isn't a national sport, its an individual sport. When Overeem and Miocic fight it isn't the Netherlands vs USA, its Overeem vs Miocic. The nationalities have nothing to do with it

    If I was a Fighter going for the title in my home town or in Vegas with a huge entourage of my compatriots I would walk out to my national anthem.

    Why didn't anyone else ever think of this. Oh yea, because that'll be completely pointless, TS.

    Nationalism is so silly. No anthems please.

    Maybe play the national anthem of the country the event is being held in at the beginning of the event, but other than that I think it is a horrible idea.

    It is a guarantee that eventually there would be a fighter who is from another country that the majority of fans would not like and they would likely boo or not shut up during the 'other' anthem and it would cause a media shit storm or something equally shitty.

    For title fights? Absolutely. It's not much, but it would do more for the "image of the sport" than all of that shit Reebok gear.

    I know that time is money for them, but if it was at all feasible, they should definitely do it.
