So Many Brazilian in MMA, Why?
I wonder why are so many major league (UFC, Strikeforce, Dream, Bellator) fighters are from Brazil.
I'm sorry if I sound mean....my friend said Brazil has lower average income, so people are more willing to take on more dangerous jobs like prize fighting. But I'm not sure if that's the case, because there are places with lower average income like African, part of Asian, Eastern Europe, Mexico. You don't see that many fighters from those places.
Some people say more people in Brazil practice grappling (brazilian jiu jitsu) so the transition from grappling to MMA is easier. But I'm not sure if that's the case either. Because many ppl from Eastern Europe learn grappling as well, they learn Sambo, and Fedor is the only famous Sambo fighters. Many people in Japan learn grappling as well.
Anyone have any idea why?
