I have never really noticed anyone ever say anything about GSp or any other canadians specifically related to being canadian.

Good points on this thread.

The vast majority of the (presumably) American posters here are truly international in their love of MMA. They seem to like the best MMA fighters irrespective of origin.

While there are good few Canadians who are also international, you do see plenty of statements along the lines of "I hope Joslin wins because he is Canadian" or whatever.

Still, I can't blame them. I'm British and I want Ross Pointon to move to heavyweight, sign for PRIDE and beat Big Nog, Barnett and then Fedor. (Then to bring peace to the Middle East, cure cancer and eradicate world poverty.)

I'd like you to find me one single post of an American poster claiming a candian fighter will get beat simply because he is Canadian. You canadians base your opinions on fighter's talent solely on their country of origin. Patrick Cote is a god cuz he's canadian...no he sucks. Jason MacDonald will beat Rich cuz he's canadian. Jonathan Goulet was gonna beat Koscheck cuz he's CANADIAN! David Loiseua should be brought back to the UFC even though he sucks now cuz he's canadian! Everything is "cuz he is canadian" to you people.

Americans on this board have to put up with your snobby ****ing asses everyday and you don't hear us *****ing about it so why don't you just **** off?

Seriously, what are you looking to accomplish with this POS thread anyway?
Man, don't judge us based on what Kirkardo wrote. He does not speak for all of us.

^ I don't see Canadians doing it any more than Americans or anybody else. Everybody does it and it's all good.
As long as you don't disrespect the other fighter

I think it comes from the fact that most of the Fighters in UFC are american. So americans cheering for american fighters seems weirder than a Croatian for instance, cheering for Crocop or other nationalities that arent as well represented. Obviously, its not really fair to american fans who may want to cheer for american fighters. for me personally, I rarely cheer for someone just cause they are canadian, unless maybe I know absolutely nothing about the fighters at all and one is Canadian and one is not. In the Franklin-MacDonald fight, I am hoping that Franklin beats the tar out of MacDonald.

Trust me man, I'm not judging all of you. I just hate the cocky arrogant canadians. I know which ones on this board are cool and which think they are better than everyone else. And to the other guy, I don't see how I am digging a hole....maybe you weren't a part of this site when Cote was announced to be on TUF, or Goulet was gonna fight Koscheck, or whatever, but that's all everyone heard for a while..."CUZ HE IS CANADIAN!" On the contrary, I've never read one single post from an American saying "American fighters are the new breed, they are the best in the world, candadian fighter suck, Canada sucks, you deserve everything you got on 9/11...blah blah blah insert anti american statement here."
