“The Brazilian athletes are the best in the world, I have no doubt about that. With few condition of work that we have, we get these champions, this is something that you don’t see in any other place in the world.
You watch a person fed poorly in his younger life, some who never took supplements, travel to the US and kick everybody’s ass. The guy prosper without incentive and also while having another job, I only see this in Brazil.”
Nova Uniao Boss, Andre Pederneiras, recently told the Brazilian Media that he believes his countrymen to be the best athletes in Mixed Martial Arts.
Currently, Brazil stakes claim to two UFC champions while The US holds 6 titles and will hold 7 after the Lawler vs. Hendricks title match up and likely an 8th by the time TUF 20 concludes.
