    I believe there will be a champion from Russia, one day. It's just a matter of time.

    Haha, in all seriousness if he does pan out like everyone expects he's probably the next European that'll get a title shot. Unless Bisping is put in as a short notice replacement or something.

    IF Jones goes to heavyweight, Gustaf might be champ.
    Not this weekend yet though.
    I'm hoping for Tarec Saffiedine but that's because he's Belgian like me.
    I also had high hopes for Dennis Siver at 145 :-(

    No, every (each) european won't be champion of the UFC. That's impossible.

    All Carmont has to do is to survive 5 rounds against whoever will be the MW champ then. He'll win the SD.

    There was a dude in here the other day saying how he's going to Europe on vacation, I asked him which country and he said "Europe, I just told you!"

    On topic, it will come in the next ten years imo. In England for example we have good strikers, some sick BJJ but our wrestling is mediocre at best. Our mma gyms need to tap some of the eastern European wrestling coaches up! :)

    Judging that his username is actually even 'less anglicized' version of Арлоўскі, I would say it has to be trollin'. :)
