Pipe down, Britain isn't good either.
Between the U.S. and Brazil the 2 probably make up 90% or more of the top fighters. Asian fighters are touted well before they get to the UFC. The "elite" Asian fighters turned into a pile or mediocrity or worse in the UFC. Britain's claim to fame is Bisping who is a gatekeeper at best. They have Ross. Manuwa I guess is a prospect at 33 years of age??
After the top 2 countries, no country is that strong in fielding good MMA fighters. Canada has GSP and Rory. A couple more decent guys...that is about it. Australia has a couple decent guys.
MMA in it's modern carnation is essentially an American sport, with it's rules tailored towards already existing sports in which Americans excel in (wrestling). Ontop of that the UFC is an American organisation, of course most of the fighters are American.
I predict Diego Sanchez/Cathal Pendred by Split Decision.
