And wrestling is very big in schools in the US so there should definitely be more top level wrestlers.
As you say, MMA is more established in the US than in the Uk, but over the past 3 or 4 years it has really taken off. I think we will begin to see some really talented fighters coming out of Britan over the next few years.
However i dont buy this whole conspiracy bull. OK so there are no talented US wrestlers in the series, but its still man v man in the octagan, us v uk, its not our fault we continue to spank the yank !
