What they say is, in Portuguese: "Uh, vai morrer..." what translates into "You gonna die..." Too bad some ppl really believe they ment what they say...

A crowd is a crowd. It has its own personality and ppl will say and do stupid things while among a bunch when they would never do alone. It's mass psychology and it's wide studied by professionals in that area.

Are ppl really criticizing other ppl patriotism? Hiro, do yorself a favour and just turn your volume down, so you won't hear the crowd and Joe Rogan altogether. Double prize for you.

As long as it's not racist and they don't incite violence then it's all good.

I'm brazilian and I think booing Fitch when he tried to get the crowd going was bad. Booing a fight winner just because he isn't brazilian is bad too. Fitch and Davis were applauded after the fight though.
It was hilarious when Davis punched Prado in the back of head and the crowd first booed and then started chanting: "Ei juiz, vai tomar no cu". Something like: "Hey referee, go **** yourself". That's a commom chant in soccer matches but I never thought I'd hear that at UFC. They also offended the brazilian commentator, Galvão Bueno, in the last two fights. He is a legend but his popularity is declining in the last years.

Meh, that's exactly what makes football fans so great. We're gonna cheer for our guys and boo the other guys no matter how bad we play and how good they are. We simply don't care. Like honey badgers.

From memory the Australian fans were good at the events I haven't been at. It's really hard to tell when you are at the event though.

Canadians are always good, I love watching the Brits steal hats and I normally like the Brazilian fans but they bothered me at 153.

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
Fans from the USA! USA! beg to differ.

You get booing in every country. UK, Australia, USA, Brazil etc etc

The reason the UFC goes to all these other countries and puts fighters from that country in nearly every fight is cos they know people will cheer and support their local fighter.

The Brazilians just seem to take it to a whole other level though. It isnt a bad thing, just a different culture down there.

Nah, I like Rogan and want to hear his commentary, just not about how great the Brazilian fans are when they're acting like mindless neanderthals

Being patriotic isn't an issue, but when it becomes such a feature and reaches the point where it's a Brazil vs the world event then it bothers me. And yes in the US you hear a USA chant every once in a while, but that's showing support not booing a guy for doing a good job just because he's not from the states. There's a line and Brazilians IMO cross it. As for chanting "you're gonna die"... well need I say anymore?

I get the whole supporting your home fighters thing, but when it gets that much I end up wanting to see Brazil fighters get stomped just to shut the crowd up. And that to me is not what this sport is about, and hence why I think comparisons to football (which by the way is followed by large contingents of mentally challenged individuals who love to spout hate) are irrelevant.

If all nations followed fighters with the football approach, trust me this sport would not be anywhere near as civil as it is now. Football fans are segregated away from each other for a reason.

Yes, you need to say how come you can so heavily criticize a foreign crowd for booing and chanting when you have the infamous Hooligans in your Brit yard? That's crossing the line, my friend.
