    What about native americans? They have like zero presence in MMA.

    I just find it funny someone wrote an article about how great it would be if Anderson lost, for the sport,the division and the UFC, and then the next day it happened.

    Can you expand on your question? You seem to have an assumption that I want Silva to disgrace himself. I'm unclear how you came to that conclusion.

    Dan Henderson is one... I'm sure you can find others that are at least like 1/280 Native American.

    I met Dan Hornbuckle at a grappling tournament. He seemed like a nice guy.

    I'd point out that makes Aaron Hernandez a role model for Hispanics, but you've contradicted yourself before I could get to it:

    2 of the 3 names on this list are considered to be assholes. Are they really role models?
    Even when Ortiz was loved, he was an asshole.

    Many of his fans loved him because he was an asshole.



    Simplejack, Connor McGregor is a ginger. Give him a year, you'll have guys wringing out his jock for salad dressing.

    Just because an athlete is your color, doesn't mean you or any members of his race did anything to get him there. Same with Olympians that are from your country.

    This whole cheering for your country or color thing is craziness. As crazy as getting in a fight over your favorite sports team. People have an irrational compulsion to belong. They want to belong not to their community or their neighborhood but instead to a larger conglomeration.

    Ease up there tonto. The ginger gang and I had a closer look and we can't find a freckle on that young man. Now we would be more than happy to declare him king of the gingers, but you will need to produce multiple freckles of evidence.

    Snigs, wouldn't sociology come into play. Your county is a bigger piece of your community. Don't you need your country to be doing well for your community to do well. They are not mutually exclusive are they? I take pride in both. I volunteer to my community (city) and I have also served for my country. Not sure why it is crazy to cheer for my country, or want to see them do good. In the end it will benefit me, right?

    When you watch the Olympics you don't cheer for your country? When you watch sports surely you cheer for your home town or the team closest by your home town to win.

    Fans typically rally behind "their guy or team" in sports. In this regards I don't see my behavior as being outside of the norm. There is nothing wrong with supporting a fighter that indirectly represents you whether its comes down to skin color, morals, fighting style, upbringing etc etc.

    It's not like I wouldn't be cheering for Nick Diaz if it was physically possible for him to fight Rashad Evans or Jon Jones. While skin color is a factor its not my end all be all.

    ^^^@roaddawg I was in Germany for a month (deployed) when the European cup was going on for soccer. Germany was in the championship that year. You should see how crazed those people were. Looked like someone died when they lost.
