if you dont like the thread then go somewhere else.
How about specifying what you are talking about? No where in your thread does it say your talking about fighters.

lmao. its an mma forum. im not ranking them for ice cream.

the point of the thread is to gain insight into the level of development of mma in different countries.

its not a dumb thread. we got people here from all over the world and also ppl with inside knowledge in mma. i was wondering two things mainly

1 how the countries weight up in terms of their mma output and 2 to what extent is mma an american/ brazilian phenomenon. ie in china is there alternatives that cover the same ground more or less.

obviously ufc is the major brand of mma and to some extent exemplifies it but if we look at the make up of mma fighters in ufc it is overwhelmingly american. when we see fighters from other countries, it begs the question to what extent are they representative of a larger trend or are they the best of a small bunch.

Your going to keep being a smart ass? You could have been talking about two things.

1) Relevant fighters developed in a country
2) A countries marketability

No where did you specify what you were talking about, hence why I mentioned ireland and others.

mate this is your issue. ive been nothing but civil to you while you have chosen to swear and curse and willfully misunderstand an obvious preposition. you could have asked me pm but instead you took a thread which everybody else seems to understand perfectly and then blame me for the fact you dont understand it.

if you wanted help just ask. try not to insult people and the replys may be less formal and more personable.

to anser your question, im interested in peoples own experiences and also the inside track from ppl who know and lastly how the gerneral punter rates the different countries for their output of stars.

obviously this is a ufc based section and thats what im looking at mostly as i find it seems to serve as an umbrella for local mma, catching the best talent of nations far more than something like strikeforce would.

The thread is talking about fighters compared to countries, which country has the best fighters (from my understanding).

Keep the thread clean and civil guys. Intermission, you know better than to go off on someone regardless of their thread/opinion.

Let's play nice, children.

Sorry, I didnt understand. And Sorry Vince for the immature language and actions.

As for the thread itsself, the majority of fighters come from the original list.

based on "quantity of A-C level fighters total":
1. USA
2. Brazil
3. Japan
4. UK
5. Canada
If we would only count the guys in top 5 in their divisions Canada would pass UK (0 guys left then) and be tied with Japan for 3rd place (again, based on #s only). Also notice that I am counting only A-C level fighters, if we include the cans from all the scrub shows across the globe (specially japan) it would be harder to rank the countries.


Based on "amount of UFC belts held right now":
1. Brazil (3)
2. USA (2)
3. Canada (1)
Someone less lazy can do the belt math including the lower tier organizations too, I find them irrelevant for this point though as none of them outrank the respective champion of same weight class in ufc anyway.


Simply put USA dominates by pure numbers of fighters, but the most competetive divisions are ran by brazilians and a canadian right now. Also if we held some sort of "mma olympics" tournament for each weight class, I believe Brazil would come on top not only with most gold medals, but by most medals overall too as they would yoink atleast bronze medal from any division excluding LW.

Personally, I would rank each country by their fighter's success.
1. Brazil: With champions in Aldo, Jacare, Shogun, Silva, Fernandez, Feijao, and Sandro, Brazillian fighters are right now without a doubt has the most dominant fighters.
2. USA/Japan: the reason they are both tied is because of the fact that they do have the second most dominant MMA world champions, but their all in their respective countries. (All American fighter are champs in the US and All the Japanesse fighters are champs in Japan)
3. United Kingdom: Though dominant in their homeland, their influence in the US has allowed them to showcase their high-level striking.
Honorable Mention: Russia, Netherlands, South Korea

To be honest, if there were MMA Olympics, Japan would dominate in the lower weight divisions (BW,FW and LW), Welterweight is the US hands down, Middleweight is a bit of a toss up between the US and Brazil but I think Brazil might take it by a hair, Light Heavyweight is Brazil by a long shot, and the Heavyweight division is definitly in a mix with the US, Brazil and Russia
