    Well, now the closest it's ever come is now. If Hendricks somehow beats GSP that will almost make a clean sweep of champions coming from America. The Only exception is Renan Barao who holds a Interim belt and Aldo who is the FW champ while Dom Cruz holds one also.

    1. Cain HW (USA) It's actually up to Cain and Hendricks...
    2. Jon JOnes (USA)
    3. Chris Weidman (USA)
    4. (GSP) Canada next fight against Hendricks (USA)
    5. Pettis (USA)
    6. ALdo (Brazil)
    7. Dom Cruz (USA)
    8. MM (USA)
    9. Rousey (USA)

    Barao is the BW champ IMO

    2 brazilians have incredible chances in becoming champion (JDS, Anderson)

    Belfort, Werdum & Glover are next. Maia is 1 fight away.

    Brazilian fans: "We will win all the belts."

    Americans: won all the belts.

    Brazilian fans: "Not fair... look at the numbers... American company... blah blah blah."

    Americans: "'Merica!"

    I know this is fun to think about, but before this breaks down into a stupid conversation of nationalism lets remember the most important fact of all...everyone on that list are human beings which connects all of us from everywhere. Don't let these assholes in power mind control us by creating false distinctions amongst us and then conquer us.

    Edit: Wow, that didn't take long.

    The only reason Sonnen lost the first fight against Silva is because he is a company man and losing the belt would hurt trying to sell fights in Brazil.

    I had this thought earlier, honestly, almost the same thing. I was watching a video about rival gangs in L.A and how some were decided by simple things like geographical location and street numbers, etc.

    And I was like....I wonder if all the gangs partaking in these events even for a second realize why they are doing it, let alone, how ridiculous it is to let the false distinctions among us divide and conquer. I wouldn't say all gang members were racist, but, I'd wager a lot are. You don't see a lot of multiculturalism in most gangs. That said, someone should tell all these people they are essentially fighting over areas and pieces of land that were mapped and divided by a bunch of people who'd never qualify to be in their gang. The railroad isn't your "territory divider", that's where some fucking industrialized train was put to most likely ship goods back and forth between states. Why would you let some train tracks, a thin red line, or even language barrier be the thing that institutes who you war, and how you war?

    I don't like the idea of giving people that much power over me.

    Why do people assume because Okami was cut, so will DHK? Makes 0 sense and sounds a bit racist.

    Well, you could as well say that he gets cut because Fitch & Volkmann got cut. Have you not watched his fights?

    That's be sweet, but I do consider Barao to be the champ. Cruz should have been stripped a year ago.
