I don't think the North American part matters as much, American fighters and fans tend to be the least nationalistic and don't much base their fighter preferences on that. Brazilians on the other hand are practically unanimous in supporting their countrymen against others, they'd probably pick Jussier Da Silva over Jones.

I do agree though that the whole wrestling fraternity tends to stick together more and have mutual admiration, so it'd mean more if a prominent non-wrestler made the pick.
