Yes American fans are all stupid, that’s funny! Sorry but your anti Americanism is showing.
I’m not afraid to say that the drunken morons that boo at fights are an embarrassment but the right to actually be an individual is not something to be discouraged (individualism is NOT something that you will find in Japanese culture).
But I digress, American fans want to see a good fighter, someone that is humble but confident, hard working, a few quirks or faults wouldn’t hurt (we like to see that our heroes are humans and not machines).
GSP is very popular here in the States (so is David Loiseau among those that follow the game).
Fedor, Cro Cop, Fujita and Gomi are also popular here in the USA among fans that watch Pride.
Cro Cop will be one of the most popular fighters in the UFC by the end of 2007 guaranteed!
Saying that Americans are stupid or we only cheer for American fighters shows both bias and ignorance.
