Sounds like a pretty bad misrepresentation by PRIDE/Best Damn Sports Show...but try to be the least bit sensitive by not generalizing and stereotyping "all pride fans" into the "if the fighter is from Japan" segment.
By doing this, you sound just as ignorant and biased as the "all pride fans" you described previously.
