What happens when the UFC starts attracting more black fighters?

This is kind of not politically correct, but lets face it, black people, in general, are better athletes.

As more and more people get interested in MMA, you're bound to see more black fighters get into it. Will they dominate it like boxing?

Think about boxing in it's early days, mostly all white guys. But after black guys started getting into it, they completely dominated the sport. IMO, the same thing will happen to the UFC. You are going to start seeing some insanely athletic, strong, fast, and talented black UFC fighters in the future.


EDIT: Please don't be lame and call me a racist for bring this up. I'm not racist, I'm just being honest.

heres whats gonna happen, the UFC roster will have a few more black fighters on it, and the mma world will continue on as normal.

No offense to you or anything, but I dont care if the UFC brings in black fighters, white fighters, purple fighters or yellow fighters, if they can fight, they can fight. Thats all I (and the majority of mma fans) care about.

you could be right, who knows. But this is different than boxing cause fighting has more to do with heart and will, and less to do with whos a better athlete.

I don't have a problem with it at all, that's not what I'm saying. Actually, black athletes are usually more fun to watch because of the crazy ass shit they can pull off due to their athletic ability. I'm simply wondering if it will happen or not.

The best will come in the UFC.

There already black fighters and have been since started. Remember PAt Smith??

There are plenty of black fighters now. 2 of them just lost on Wensday night to white guys.What does that mean?? Nothing is what.

Being Black does not make you a better athlete.

Lots of blacks are being introduced now,dosent matter really. Your a good fighter or your not.


It comes down to the person and their work ethic.


If the UFC stood for United Federation Chess would you be saying Asians will be coming over to take all the titles?

i'm calling for a ban becuz altho you try and make it sound not racist, it is.

saying black people are better athletes is racist and unjustified...american sports are dominated by people of any race.

Wow.
So, by your logic, if I were to say:

"Black women are better looking."


Then that makes me a racist too, right?
