    I always wondered why some Americans fans don't like Brazilians fighters and vice versa.

    Because they constantly make up excuses when they lose.

    For awhile USA and Brazil were the two top dogs for producing fighters so a natural rivalry developed

    There is also a bit if a wrestling/bjj rivalry

    Because of stupid nationalism that makes Shertards seem sane by comparison.

    I'm American. Most of my favorite fighters are Brazilian.

    I don't care about nationality or invisible lines on a map.

    Brazilians are the saltiest sports fans on earth. This isn't isolated to MMA. If Americans were competitive at soccer, they'd be facing death threats from Brazilian fans.

    Because of this dumb idea called "patriotism"

    Neither have worked out that where you are born wasn't your choice, you just arrived via a vagina on a continent and it had nothing to do with your own personal choices.

    Patriotism is dumb

    And just Brazil and USA are very patriotic

    you have a point, but thats less about sport more about delinquents looking for an excuse to riot.

    This. I think in 2011 or 2012 i saw the percentage per country for successful MMA fighters.

    USA and Bazil were top 2 by a large margin. It probably hasnt shifted too much in terms of top 2 or 3 countries.
