Hello everybody I'm D-Master and I'm new here. I can see there are a lot of people from different country's who post here. I would like to read your opinions on the following question. What country produces the best fighters in the world?

Don't forget Holland dude. Aerts and Hoost rank among the top K-1 fighters of all time and Semmy Schilt is doing a pretty good job taking names in Pride

Brazil Champions in Pride & UFC - Nog, Vanderlei, Busta
USA Champions in Pride and UFC - Ricco, Tito, Hughes, Pulver/Penn

But I still have to go with Brazil, b/c they win championships outside of their country, whereas USA fighters don't seem to travel as well.

If Josh beats Nog, then IMO USA gets the title for MMA.

First post. Nice place you got here.

First off I'd like to welcome D-Master and Thanos to the forums.

I think it is evening up where the best fighters come from. For a long while I felt it was Brazil but now I think it is Brazil, US, Holland, Japan. Other countries are bringing great talent as well.

LOL. Yup, the LA area has the highest concentration of MMA training centers that I know of.
