Hear is something I NEVER understood is when they say Japan MMA is dead. But they ONLY say that because Japanesse fighters arent that successful in the US.
But over in Japan, US fighters arent doing that great themselves. The only three US fighters I can think off the top of my head that had success in Japan was Coleman, Henderson and Shields.

You tried too hard to sound smart but it backfired, bad... You need to know what you're talking about first.

Nationality isn't ethnicity so generally it isn't racism they do it to british fighters as well. I have seen people do it when there isn't a USA born fighter in the ring though and there can be a argument made for that being racist. Since it is usually the fans associating the white European/South African as american and the hispanic/south american as foreign. That plays into the whole white americans not seeing minorities as real americans thing.
