All Maia might have really said is, "I would prefer not to fight other Brazilians.", which is a completely reasonable statement.

But never mind. You guys go ahead and sharpen those pitchforks. Some bloke told you that some bloke said something that you don't like!? Lynch the fecker!

Haters gonna hate.

I like Maia but as almost all of you said, what an idiotic comment. I mean, didn't he have to fight his countrymen in local circuits before even coming to the UFC. I love Brazilian fighters for their aggressive and technical style of fighting but I find a lot of their comments moronic and they tend to appear to have a superiority complex (unless it's lost in translation)

But Maia, that was a really stupid comment !

Ryder Cup of UFC, lets do this thing...

Each country picks 3 HWs, 3 LHWs, 3 MWs and 3WWs.

The manager of each country seeds all their fighters from 1-3 in each weight class. They then put their seedings up against the other, having chosen blind to how the other is picking.

12 fights, 5 hour ppv, hold it on neutral ground like the moon perhaps, or maybe Alaska.

Total Tottenham

Supporting - Machida, Edgar, Mitrione, Pickett, Cruickshank, Wiman, Lauzon, Falcao, Belcher, Korean Zombie, Palhares, Hendricks

Retirees - Lytle, BJ Penn, Hackney,
