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.
