Demian Maia "Brazilians shouldn't fight each other, unless it's Anderson."

Quote:
"It was rumored (a fight with Palhares), but I thought there would not be any possibilities (of it happening), because he just fought, it doesn't make sense for him to throw himself into another fight right now. "Toquinho" trained a few months for this fight. Just because it was fast doesn't mean there were no wear and tears. But I don't even think about that. To be honest, the Brazilian fans should be more worried about seeing us fighting foreigners. There are (only) a few Brazilian fighters in the division and I think that, aside of the title, since it's Anderson who is the champion, the Brazilians should not face each other."

I totally agree! Also Americans and Canadians should not fight each other either, not to mention the Japanese. All we should ever see are competitions between nations unless it for championship belt. That or between races. We could have a White vs Asian card.

I like Maia, but that is a ridiculous statement.

That's a pretty impractical standpoint for a UFC fighter to have, especially when you're from one of the bigger nations (USA, Brazil, Canada and so on)

Not wanting to fight countrymen could hurt you in the long run, it's ok to say "I prefer not fighting my fellow countrymen, but I'll do it if I have to."

- That being said I like the "Brazil vs. the world" attitude, it's interesting

I just can't remember you ever being such a diplomatic contortionist when discussing American TEAM MATES not wanting to fight each other.


Suddenly I'm in the mood for some good old Chute box vs Brazilian Top Team Pride classics.

Why not no Americans vs Americans, which of course will include Canada and Mexico. Hell, why not take it further and have no White vs White or no Black vs Black. Pretty ******* ridiculous isn't it?

Yea so because you were born on the same piece of rock Brazilian's shouldn't fight?

Do they deem their culture so superior to everyone else's that they should be exempt from fighting each other?

Sometimes, Brazilian fighters in the UFC are idiots.
