  2. stephen riddle says:

    Since when was this a country thing? Shm.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      ITS ALWAYS A COUNTRY THING. If you are an American and you don’t support American fighters then there is something wrong with you. It doesn’t mean you don’t like or respect other fighter’s from other countries, you just never root for the when they are fighting an American!!! Weren’t you raised to be patriotic!!!

      • WrestlingRules( brings men closer ) says:

        Why is it everytime I read a story.. I see your bitch ass stirring up some shit. You are clearly a sad pathetic little fuq with your panties around your ankles and a pile of cleenex in the floor.. Lookin at pics of shirtless men..dreaming of the special way u would wrestle them… Nationalism is jizm.. Honor and courage.. Your spirit.. Your will.. Your skill…. Your country.. Means nothing to me.. You are a complete idiot…. And a wimp of epic proportions..fuq off

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Listen GroFF, how many personalities do you have coward??? You don’t like my shit then quit reading it prick…decker…….OF COURSE IT IS ABOUT AMERICA you cock sucking marxist. GTFO of of AMERICA if you don;t like it. You can admire their abilities, but if you are and AMERICAN that you root for AMERICANS even if the suck. What the hell happened to you?? Do you have mental illness old man???

      • shogunbyKNOCKOUT says:

        Shut the fuck up, u clearly are not a UFC fan if u only look at the american fighters as ur hero u prick.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I don’t have heroes asshole. Secondly, I admire their skills BUT I WOULDN’T ROOT FOR THEM OVER AN AMERICAN!!! I would NEVER root for a fuckin’ Brazilian over an American. Even if I admire that Brazilian and their abilities. The fact that you would as an AMERICAN tells me you suck and are unreliable.. Little boy..

  3. B-rad says:

    it is and isnt a country thing. in america its not so much but in brazil it is a HUGE deal when one of them fight an american, so they kinda turned it into a thing
