Lol.. France actually has a huge reservoir of potential MMA Fighters. Here are some official numbers (source: Insee.fr)
550,382 registered Judo and Judo-jiujitsukas
191,002 registered Karatekas
480,546 registered Kickboxers and Muay Thai practitioners
Well, where are they?? I'd love to see France better represented in the UFC, or WEC, or Strikeforce or wherever.
