Why are Brazilian MMA practitioners so nasty?
 
I'm not trying to offend anybody, but I recently discovered that Brazilian fighters are very nasty, save for a few of them.

I went to a gym in my native Germany last week where I met a lot of Brazilian fighters. One looked at me and said in a thick Portugese accent, 'how you doing, lanky man?' I told him he was rude and that over here in Germany unlike Brazilians we can wrestle. He then said he was a BJJ specialist and that he'd choke me out then his friends went and was getting aggressive in my face. These were Portugese Ameridian looking Brazillians, not the more ethnic looking darker ones.

I had a few fights with Brazilians in Spain too, they were too aggressive. Also, Brazilian fighters in UFC are nasty too. I heard it has something to do with wanting to be respected as professional, but they too aggressive, this blonde blue eyed one said he was a pure 'aryan' llike me, but I told him he can't be aryan, because he is Brazilian and definitely mixed with indian and african and all that.

They make me feel weird.

Anybody else feel the same way?

This is a rather touchy subject. I'm not sure why you bothered arguing with some guy about his ancestry.

Too bad if you were mistreated by Brazilians, but by this sentence of yours makes it look like you have met all Brazilian fighters in the world, in order to make such precise classification.

There are nasty ppl everywhere. I sugest you dump this subject or historic acts of real nastiness will knock at your German door.
This is not the place for that.

Well Hex, I bothered arguing because I was defending myself, verbally of course. What I didn't mention was that he and his buddies were talking about how Brazil had too many different minorities and I just corrected him saying he was one of the minorities technically. I am no bigot, but Brazilian men are not very well in the head I think.

I believe you both may have misconstrued my thoughts, I have met MANY Brazilians, maybe too much. I think that their women are a bit over the top, but some are nice. I like Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida, they seem like intelligent gentlemen for Brazilians, but I suspect that is due to their combined ancestary of African upbringing and Japanese (Anderson Silva's father is black african, and his mother is back cuban who settled in Brazilian. Lyoto Machida is half Brazilian and half Japanese)

All i'm saying is that I think Brazilians should represent themselves better. I am a proud German, our history is not as bad as people think.

One of my best friends is Brazilian and he's probably the nicest, most polite person I've ever met. His family is the shit and treat me as family and have since day one. After hurricane Katrina, they got me a job and let me live with them for several weeks while I got back on my feet. I'd say that's representing one's country rather well. You know what isn't? Starting your first forum thread about disliking people in general due to their nationality...


Also, nobody is Aryan. It's a made up race.

Proud German 11-08-2012 06:21 PM

Wrong. I am Aryan. A proud one too. Nothing wrong with taking Pride in one's heritage.

Like I said before, I am sure there are some nice Brazilian people, but the ones I have come across haven't been so. I went to Portugal onces, where I met a few Brazilian guys. They seemed nice at first, one even offered to buy me a Whopper, though I politely declined because he didn't have enough money to buy me a Vanilla shake with it, and I often need to was that stuff down with a Vanilla shake. But afterward that stuff finished, they both started looking at me in a peculiar way. At first I wondered if they were messing with me, but then they both turned to each other, smiled, and then turned their gaze back towards me and SPAT in my face. I was too shocked to do anything so I called the police and told them I had been assualt, but the Portugese police were not prepared to do anything incase they upset their relationship with Brazil.

These guys were MMA fighters too, just so you know. Or at least training to be. Now, if you guys know nice Brazilians, your lucky. Myself and most of my fellow countrymen aren't so lucky however.

I always kinda lol'ed at the whole aryan thing, since aryans are descended from the middle east and were as dark as anyone else from the region.

This is too much maybe they don't like you because of the way you act and speak. You sound like a snobby stuck up person who from the sound of it is pretty racist. Not to mention you seem to have met a few Brazilian but have never met one in Brazil and now exactly do you know they are Brazilian? Perhaps you should shower.

I admit I have preconceived notions of certain people, groups, or ethnicities. Doesn't mean I hate em, I just have my guard up.

Unfortunately you had a less than stellar experience.

Brazillians are a proud and passionate culture. I believe they abide by the adagio of "giving respects to get respects." Which means you may have given off a different vibe. My advice is to play it koo. If it's unprovoked then it could be an isolated incident.

You have travel the world to see in your own eyes before you pass judgement.

Brazillians saving Dolphins. Hardly a nasty culture.

This is a direct offense. You're not doing any better than your accusations.

That notion will vary significantly based on which side of the fences you were back in that time. I prefer the "Inglorious Basterds" version though. Great movie.

Your brother, Todd Keuneke payed a visit to this forum recently. He is gone now and you should follow him.
