I guarantee when Silva dominates everyone while defending his title, english or not, they will ride his ****. They were probably shocked that their "hometown" fighter got demolished in such a quick fashion. UFC audiences are full of bandwagon jumpers. Even at one point, Vitor was getting a lot of praise. But in reality...Dana is trying to make UFC "American-based". So to appeal to the fans, why not have all the champions to be American. But that all changed at UFC 64. Now people will see a different light to fighters from different countries, and will go to youtube and research on Brazilian fighters. Eventually will discover the vast amount of talent in other countries.
What gets on my nerves is the USA, USA, USA chants. Even Rogan said one time, why are they saying that. "Why are they sayin that". Because a total disrespect and straight ignorance of the sport.
