Canadian and Australian crowds are much better crowds in my opinion. They cheer at the right time, and don't boo at the first sign of grappling. Yes this is generalising, but go watch both of the Aussie cards, especially the first one, it's a much much better crowd.

Crowd size doesn't automatically mean more noise, it's just as much about the arena and how the accoustics work - and ofcourse the larger the crowd the more corporate they tend to become.

Best crowds are from Northern England and Scotland, we're used to running across fields with woad on our face screaming at each other, we do the same in our sporting events too.

110 was an awesome crowd. the pop when g-sot got the mount was crazy.


I will also say the Japanese crowd was great(obviously always great anyway) whenever Cro Cop fought, his fight with Alexander E is a perfect example.

yeah but dont japanese crowds maintain silence out of respect there? either way the UK, Australia and the rabid parts of america make the best noise. they said they are gonna try get it in our 55-7- seat stadium in melbourne this year or next year and turn down your t.v its gonna be louder than every event ever, hopefully we are rewarded by another quick sellout of a huge stadium.

Being there I can tell you it was pretty damn loud. The suplexes on Diaz and GSP's entrance had people screaming their heads off...
