The US produces the most quality fighters.

Brazil has some pheonomenal fighters that truly shine above the rest.

Russia has Fedor, which is respectable.

Top 3 countries.

Definitely the masked mixed martial artists from Madagascar. They train against lemurs and once you've faced an opponent with a prehensile tail, you know what fighting truly is.

You're hopelessly hopeless and I hope so, for you.

I've been meaning to say thank you PrideFan123 for helping me figure out what this 'rep' business and points business was all about.

Thank you.

Probably the USA... I'm not American and don't particularly like the country as such (foreign policy, obesity, energy consumption - and the load of tools who gave G Dubya two terms in the White House), even though I have had great American friends over the years.

If there ever were an MMA competition where countries are represented I have no doubt that the Yanks would clean up.

Brazilian fighters are great too, no doubt about it and ever sicne UFC 1 when Royce Gracie dropped a few jaws of surprise (beating guys WAY bigger than him) they have been a force to be reckoned with.

However, who gives a sh1t, this is an individual sport, so the question is a tad pointless. Oh, and nowadays the teams are made up of so many nationalities with regard to specific trainers, coaches, sparring partners etc. Perhaps the fact the MMA is global and not some nationalistic istitute is what contributes towards making this sport so great. Once inside the Octagon your flag doesn't count for anything. Seeing Yanks cheer for a Brazilian (or whoever) is great and the way the world should be!

MMA is still the "King of Sports", so yes, whatever.

I'd say the US most likely as having the most fighters. Brazil produces a ton of great fighters though so its hard to call but I'd have to say the US. They produce more middle - high level overall.

Because there is no criteria other than “Which country has the best fighters in the world” I’ll have to say…

USA
Brazil
Russia (former Soviet Union which included Russia, Bellarussia, Ukrane, Eastern Europe and the Baltics).
Japan and Canada

And here is why…

The USA just have more top lever fighters period (including several champs and former champs).

If you consider the fact that the USA has 300 million people I would have to say that par capita Brazil has the best fighters with Japan and Canada doing well (Canada has the same population as the State of California).

For me, and I'm not just trying to be provocative, it's easily the Brazilians.

I don't see anyone in the Light heavyweight division being better than Wanderlei or Thiago, not even Rampage or Henderson.

I also don't see anyone in MW outdoing Anderson Silva or Filho.

Keep in mind that these guys are fighting in foreign territory and can barely speak the language there and so are definitely not pushed by marketing propaganda like Franklin or Liddell.

I don't believe that overall any nation is better than Brazil in combat. I just don't see it.

Are we talking single fighters or as a whole? Because if were just going by the number 1 in each division then its Brazil, but if you go through the rest of the middleweight its only 2 from brazil with 5 from America and 3 from other areas. So would America be better overall having 5 in the top 10 despite those 5 being lower then brazils 2?
