Inconsistent Patriotism


Recommended Posts

CroCop is an iconic legendary fighter who has won over the fans wherever he goes. Same thing for Wandy and many others.


I've always found a pretty welcoming attitude of fans towards any fighter regardless of nationality. As is the case often in individual sports as opposed to team sports. Someone who's prolific in their field can win over the hearts of fans regardless of where they originate from - especially in modern MMA where at any given camp you'll find Ameircans, Brazilians, Dutch, English, Japanese...all training together. This isn't a very geocentric sport. Having said that, I think if you don't know much about particular fighters or are simply not very invested in the fights outcome, there is a tendency to lean on national patriotism as a fall back.
