    Foreigners in UFC

    I thik there is a lack of foreigners in the UFC.
    Would like to see more people of the world fighting for the world championships.
    A few brazilians here and there, but the fundaments are all Americans. So many of them that the chances are big that good ones, who happen to be american, go for the title shots.
    LYoto machida, give him his title shot
    Anderson Silva, got eaten alive by a Japanese karate guy Chonan Ryo:waoya and some other Japanese

    I feel that in Japan there is much more of a global mix of fighters. Australians, New Zeeland, Americans, Gracies and Brazilians:tongue5: , Japanese, Russians, Dutch, etc...
    in know UFC has some but it is nothing compared to the amount of internatinalism you find here.
    I feel that the UFC is like the NBA world champion ship, and the American Football world Championship, and the Baseball champion ships with only Americans participating resulting in .... an american champion...:pity:

    Anderson got eaten alive, lol.

    YouTube - Ryo Chonan making Anderson Silva tapout

    He got caught with a gimicky move. Props to Chonan for pulling it off, but it doesn't qualify as "eaten alive".

    Also. GSP is not American.

    still missing the vids of the ohter Japanese guy
    YouTube - Anderson Silva vs Daiju Takase


    but the scissor was cool to:laughing9

    I am just wondering if UFC fans don`t want to see a more international scene.
    A guy needs to beat a bunch of nationalities before he becomes UFC world champion.

    Are you seriously suggesting affirmative action for professional athletes competing in a combat sport?

    In the spirit of Black History Month, **** affirmative action. And **** black history month.

    Shush, I like to keep DREAM and Sengoku and K-1 a secret from all my UFC-loving friends.

    They can have Brock Lesnar, I'll take Gegard Mousasi.

    To tell you the truth, we down here in Australia don't have too much talent to offer you's. The sport is growing very rapidly here, but it will take years to filter through any potential champions.

    The fact is, most champions train with other champions and former champions, seeing as though we have none down here, that would mean travelling to the USA to 'make it'. But for every Aussie that does make that move, there will be 100 americans of similar skill that already live in the US, most of which close to high quality gyms.
