    USA
    Brazil
    Russia and Russian states/nations
    Canada


    in 5 years can you see a mix of talent from all over or will one nation dominate?

    These Russian kids are fucking scary good. They have strong striking and their wrestling is all sambo based so they aren't eons behind the Americans like the Europeans are.

    Just Russia would have done.

    I want to see more Ukrainians, Kazakhs and Belorussians in the UFC, they are all great at sambo/judo/wrestling too. I really hope Khabib getting a belt will help motivate all of Europe, outside of the big stars, there isn't a whole lot of prospects right now.

    We can tell. Americans don't chant "murica" or even "america". They chant "USA".

    That's not all that far from now, I wouldn't expect any major changes within that period of time. The U.S. will still dominate in terms of share of top 10 fighters, I think the only trend to watch will be how many Russians can crack the top 10-15 as most of those guys haven't really had the opportunity to work their way up yet.

    The U.S. won't exist as it is after the Iranians smuggle in a few nukes and explode them in NY City, D.C., and Los Angeles.

    Brazil will implode from massive ego with minimal results.

    That leaves Russia, Canada, and Ireland of course.
