It's the simple fact that not many casual or hardcore fans find Wrestling or grappling of any sort, for position exciting. Regardless of your stupid opinion, Brazil fans showed more class than almost any American crowd. Brazil, even when their hometown guy lost, they still applauded the efforts of the winning fighters. That almost never happens in the US. I will end this by saying, you're need to just shut the f*** up!
LOL

That could be twisted any which way. Like look at those senseless people rioting over a soccer game over there. Pfft they suck. Give me American fans over European any day.
No, American fans doesn't necessarily suck. But my general thinking is that more noise = better crowd. And the Brazilian crowds have been far more wild and lively than your average American crowd.

I don't know where you are going with your other point. For me personally, as long as a riot doesn't break out and people get hurt, the rowdier and crazier crowd the better.

For the guys responding without exploding in a rage of STFU, I guess what gets me more is how a fighter who puts his ass on the line to fight for our entertainment gets boo'd irrespective of what's actually happening. I've not heard any other crowds do that and certainly not at the events I've been to.

It's not like Brazil don't have their share of success to celebrate, why is it such a big issue that a Brazilian may get beat in front of them? Brazil is a big place yet their patriotism seems so strong they end up acting like morons.

Clearly some of you guys don't get it, and I'm not the one to enlight you all.

I just like to point out that both examples given by Hiro are not valids since both fitch and Phil were applauded after the fights.

Have you ever saw a football team geting Boo'd just for having a ball posession? It's kinda like that, it ment to add pressure no one is disrespecting anyone here but you, US fans who don't get cultural diversity.

I'm Brazilian and I'll take heavy boos any day over 'just bleeeeed' fans


/end rant.

I think booing Bonnar was a disgrace though.

Hey, I'm a fan of Br... Oh, never mind.

Seriously though, I didn't really have any issues with the crowd at all. And I give thumbs-up to any crowd that boos a quick stand-up.

I think the Brazilian crowd boo'ed because they knew Marcello wanted the fight to get to the ground, not because of the quick standup.

Anyone knows what the Brazilian fans chant that sounds something like "Wu pa-kor-hae"? They do it everytime a non-brazilian goes for the weigh in.

I'm British actually. I don't ever hear Brazilian fighters getting boo'd at shows outside of Brazil, just for fighting. It's moronic.

Your football comparison is terrible, that's a sport where fans follow one team based usually on location and hence any other team is an opponent from the fan's perspective too. Since when is MMA a nation vs nation sport? Only Brazilians seem to want to take it this far. If that's the case, I hope Dana sends Jon Jones down to Rio next time to stomp another Brazilian

Thank God for us UK fans . Even Rogan said that we are good for cheering on our fighters but still clap and cheer for everyone else.
