MMA is a competition and to chant "USA" during fights just because the fighter's from the same country as you is the stupidest thing. its not just at UFC 58 either, i was watching couture/belfort I and noticed it there and in the first UFCs people would chant USA in royce gracie's matches and didn't care that he was the best grappler we had seen at that time. MMA is a competition, not a war. when i watch a fight, i'm rooting for the best fighter, not the guy from my country.
that was dana's fault not americans. He set it up USA vs Canada. So you root for the best fighter kinda like a band wagon jumper. If it wasnt meant to be like that they wouldnt anounce what country the fighter is from. and as far as not cheering thats like saying USA fans shouldnt cheer for USA in the olympics or worldcup (well i dont even cheer for them in worldcup, go italy ) or for the dream team, thats crazy. it is called being patriotic
