The asshole ratio among North American fans is far higher than in Japan.
I'm not even referring to the Japanese fans really, i prefer their attitude too, I'm talking more about the idea some
of them have about Japan being really different to other countries, and no doubt some of them think their fans being respectful and quite is all part of the uniqueness that is Japan, kinda like a subliminal arrogance or something as they are basically saying look at how respectful our fans are compared to your country, Japanese people are great.
This may seem strange of me to say, but I've had deal with a few of these people in real life, and it gets tiresome. But to clarify I think the Japanese fans approach to mma is more respectful and definitely the way i prefer, its just that the guy asking the question "is Japan different?" reminds of some of those people I've encountered that seem to need clarification from a foreigner that they are in fact super duper.
