    UK's best is Bisping who sports a 17-7 UFC record. Their other top veterans are Dan Hardy (6-4), Jon Hathaway(7-2) and Ross Pearson(10-7).

    Ireland has Conor McGregor and a prospect in Joe Duffy(1-1).

    Korea has Don Hyun Kim(12-3) and Korean Zombie(3-1) and a serious prospect in Doo Ho Choi(2-0).

    Japan has Yushin Okami (13-5), Mizugaki (10-7), Horiguchi (5-1). I also have to include veterans, Gomi(4-6) and Kawajiri(3-3).

    Australia has rising prospects in Robert Whitaker(6-2) and Jake Matthews(3-1) and a veteran in Kyle Noke (6-4).

    Of all time, it's between Japan and UK but I give an edge to Japan for having more legendary fighters.

    Currently, it's a toss up. UK has nobody after Bisping while all of the other countries have rising prospects.

    I think we're just scratching the surface of the talent in Korea... I remember hearing people praise the kids working at Korean top team a few years back and we're starting to see the results... interesting to see where they'll be in 5 years
