    And, while I disagree with Sherk's comments, I thought they were actually very tame. I think the real problem is the title of the article and all the emotion it conjures when you read it.

    yeah that is just a dumb statement. it seems like a slap in the face of true MMA fans.

    the truth is the largest MMA org is an american org but its mixed martial arts not ultimate fighting as some would have you believe. *cough* drunk meatheads *cough* the UFC is not anywhere close to being all of the MMA world.

    Plus, I do not remember any brazilian ever saying something like "MMA is a Brazilian sport". Even though they have had ValeTudo for some decades now.
    Yeah I gotta say its all in the name. Mixed Martial Arts. The whole idea behind the sport originally was to see how masters of one style fared against another. Now it's all about learning styles from different countries and blending them together. The diversity of nationality and fighting styles are what led me to the sport in the first place. I also would like to comment that, as an American, of course I want to see Americans do well but I'm not worried about how many belts we have. I just want to see the best fighter with the belt.
