What is this babbling? So you are saying more kids in America know what MMA is and want to be MMA fighters? But in Asia that isn't exactly the case?
MMA was somewhat founded in Japan. MMA was WAAAAAAAY more popular in Japan in the 90s than it was in AMerica.
I don't buy your post at all.
Let's use Britain as the example instead of Japan then, nobody knows what MMA is here, maybe 1 in 100 people would understand what i mean if i said MMA; it would not be in the top 50 sports here yet on numbers alone we're probably one of the top 5 nationalities in the UFC.
