UFC Racism?

I dont know, if anyine else has noticed but why is it most of the time when a "foreign" fighter takes on a American born fighter, the USA chant comes out in full force.
Not trying to start anything, just wanna know why?

I've never got it, no matter how much the foreign fighter is loved, still a USA chant comes along.

it's not really anything against the foreign fighter but patriotic support for the American fighter.

Take Gomi v Griffin, the crowd went nuts for Gomi at the end but for the full minute of the fight were chanting U S A, but the crowd still appreciated and respected him as a fighter.

it's almost a little embarrassing. The chanting reinforces the whole stereotype of Americans being a bit over zealous about their country. Patriotism just for the sake of patriotism.

Happens in pro wrestling too, it's just the fans depending upon where they are having the UFC event. It's called patriotism, which is suppsed to be a good thing, but I'm not going to be the one telling them the chant gives the whole world a douche chill when it's done at UFC events.

It really should be reserved for Hacksaw Jim Duggan's fights and no one elses.

It happens everywhere.. The Canadian fighters got bigger cheers and their names chanted every time in Montreal and Vancouver. Im sure it was the same in England.

1st it's called nationalism not racism. Natitionalism is cheering for someon from your nation agaist someone from another nation. Racism would be like cheering for a white guy against a black guy just because of the way they look no matter where they are from or who they are.
2ed it is the fans not company
3ed it's not just in America. Hell I wonder why bisping was the fan favorite when he fought hammil or think of all the boos sera got when he fought GSP in Canada.

If the have an event in England ant it's a brittish fighter vs an American you can expect to get allot of cheers for the Brit and not so much for the American. Although some will cheer for the other guy expect most to cheer for thir nationality.
