    Places like Mexico don't care or not if their fighter lost or screwed up, its about sticking together, Brazil will all chant “YOU WILL DIE!” together, Canada supports GSP unconditionally.

    unfortunately the USA has no identity when it comes to these things, would be nice to have some good ol American pride!

    Not that easy when you have a dominant share of the top athletes. Even the non Americans train in the US quite often. I wonder why?

    Dude, we can barely go through a UFC fight in the USA without hearing "USA! USA!" chants. LOL

    You can have pride without acting like an unevolved primate. Japan is a perfect example.

    Stop being a cry baby victim. We hear "USA! USA!" chants in almost every event hosted in the USA. Some people complain and some people like it. Like with almost anything.

    There's a major difference though.
    UFC is American.
    Majority of fighters in the UFC are Americans.
    the vast majority of fights are in US.

    Americans just cheer for the fighters they like most.

    Besides, let us not forget that fighters like Colby, that only Americans can root for...and they do.

    im a fan of a fighter because of how they train, how they fight, and who they are.

    where they were born makes no difference to me.

    i can display nationalism in more logical ways if i want to.

    It's a US based org with the majority of fighters being from the US. In any sport the it's mostly like that. It wouldn't be like that if most of the fighters were from outside the US

    Some american fans can't handle a L, everytime their is Mexico vs USA the broadcasters always the same narrative" We have a good chance on winning the match if we do etc etc"
    Game ends 3-1 for Mexico, "Ah jeez, we weren't ready and played sloppy".
    Everytime mexico loses, the Mexican broadcasters go hard on the criticism.

    In th3 NFL even when the ref makes the right call the for opposite team, home town fans have to boo it.

    There are too many US fighters but the support for any of them isn't the same.
    How many Americans flew to Manchester to watch Hendo vs Bisping, how many were there to watch Stephens last night? I'd say about none.

    How many British fans fly over to the US to watch British boxers? Thousands.
    If Wilder were ever to fight Fury or Joshua in the UK there's be no Wilder fans in the 90k crowd.
    When Fury fought Wilder there were loads of Fury fans there.
