Just give us good fights.

Then again, I'm from the good part of Canada, not the east coast.
Central Canada > wherever you live

But he's right... good fights are more important than anything in Canada. Though I won't straight up lie and say we don't cheer on our own (even though most of them are from Quebec, which I would normally never associate with).

I might get flack for this but IMO in arenas -

Brazil fans - most passionate, and stubbornly biased. Are concerned mostly with heart (whether on the ground or on the feet). Loyal to their countrymen.

Japan fans - most respectful and appreciative of mechanics but somewhat passive (opposite of passionate). Love a good ground sub war but aren't put off by striking. Take pride in their countrymen but will side with whoever is the most technical.

Canadian fans - Most objective; Rocky 4 type cheer whoever is putting on a show, like all around types; cheer a good ground battle stand up war or technical stand off. Aren't afraid to change teams so to speak.

American fans - Somewhere between Brazil fans and British fans, most likely to be fairweather ones (real fans rarely afford ticket prices ), brawling fanatics. Appreciative of power. Loyal to their countrymen.

British fans - Somewhere between American and Canadian, appreciate a good technical standup but despise the ground game. Cheer for heart.

This is my opinion of course and I only speak of hive mind behavior in arenas not individual fans themselves.

I've always loved Japanese crowds. The applause and gasps make it seem like such a revered sport, lol.

You forgot to mention the Aussie crowds - always laughing for some reason.

I haven't seen enough shows there to form a real opinion, but I love me some Aussies, they are awesome. Yeah my favorites would be Japan and Brazil even though they are polar opposites for the most part, forgot to mention Japan appreciates heart as well.

I'm not sure whether or not Dos Anjos is a mirage. He has gotten fairly huge recently compared to how he was when he first came into the UFC. I thought he might be a different guy with the same name when they announced him the other night.

His style seemed to be more explosive as well. He schooled Bocek so thoroughly that it looked like it was an amateur against a pro.

I've always thought Dos Anjos was a pretty good fighter and always considered him on the fringe of the top ten. Lately he has seemed to come into his own I hope his next fight is against a top ten lightweight fighter to see if he is an elite lightweight.

I have no evidence, of course, but I thought Dos Anjos was suspiciously improved this last fight.

He stole Bruce Lee's secret martial arts book and applied it to his own game?
