Are they just getting too complacent? Is it a refusal to update their training techniques? This is the second time we've seen a Brazilian title holder who seemed like he was gonna be there until he retired bet thrashed like that in such an unexpected manner. Maybe MMA is becoming as much a US centric sport as basketball and American football are and so only in the US can you update your fight strategies and learn how to strike in the manner that is needed. In any event, Aldo is now the sole Brazilian left after Dos Santos, Silva and now Barao have all been taken out hard, and at the moment I don't even know if it is looking that good for him in his rematch with Mendes. After that, the UFC could become a sport where American fighters hold every belt there is. What exactly do you think is going on here?
