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.)
