Bullshit, they booed way too much to be ‘great crowd’. — Really dislike that attitude.

Shut up you idiots! Brazilians have way more heart and passion than we do for life in gerneral, which is why their crowds have a thousand times more energy than ours do. They bring that soccer energy into the UFC arena… Nothing but good things should be said about this. BRAZIL ROCKS!!… And by the way, my wife is Brazilian! haha

I think what made it so great for them was Brazil vs the World (as they put it) attitude. The US crowd would go nuts too if they put all US born fighters against all Brazil or UK, it would give the audience a reason to cheer together. Right now its a divided crowd rooting for one fighter or the other.

THe thing about USA is that we are VERY disverse in culture, thats unlike any other country in the world…and theres nothing wrong with that, its actaully a great thing that we are so mixed…but other countries are not as diverse, so customs are uniform everywhere you go, like Brazil…its like a big family.

I don’t think it was so much about our country vs theirs… It was more about their serious passion for the sport and how happy they were to see the UFC back in their home country again. It’s so good for the sport! The UFC is on it’s way to dominating the planet!

I´m a brazilian and I was there.
sorry guys but was amazing, it´s not just about brazil vs world or USA. I think was more 13 years waiting for an UFC and we put all this energy at the same time in the arena.
134 UFC´s in english and we boooed cause or fighters was talking in english, sorry but that day, the UFC official language was portuguese.
americans crowd are different and doesn´t metter is they make an american vs the world, some americans like more anderson, nog, machida… then your american fighters.
and YES, we have the soccer culture thats its made to sing, scream and push the players (fighters) all the time.

I gotta agree with mesonta as soon as any fight hit the ground they booed and they booed anytime a non brazilian was in top position the whole time really disrespectful. They were loud and came out in herds to watch so pretty good i guess but not the best IMO.

If by “greatest” he means annoying, obnoxious, and impatient, then yes they were the “greatest.”

Your right, having such great UFC fighters and not being able to see them in your home country would make for a wild reception on fight day. I’m going to UFC 135 in Denver next month and can’t wait! I will be screaming like you crazy Brazilians for that one haha

Brazilians rock baby! I’m Italian and I never saw anything like this in any MMA Matchs! I Know how to speak portuguese and I can tell you their sings on the arena felt like they were together with the fighters ready to fight on the octagon!

THAT WAS f***** AMAZING!!!

CONGRATULATIONS BRAZILIANS!!! YOU REALLY ROCK!!

It’s all good, the event was great (thx bruno) Brazil is an awesome nation and they did start this whole thing (although Japan doesnt get enough credit imo..). But to be honest it did bug me, for example, how my BJJ teacher (who lives in the USA) was bragging about how “Brazil” won 10 of 11 fights (as he put it).. i didnt have the guts to tell him it was obviously set up this way by the UFC..which is fine by me…but if the USA had its best fighters there it would have been a different story. Maybe we should do a country vs country just to bring a little humility to Brazil. Its lame that Americans arent supposed to show pride, but it is ok for any other country. This is why as crazy and wrong as Chael is, he is the man!!!! USA!

@Kano

I’ve always hated that double standard and it is very real. But in the words of Chris Rock, “sometimes people with the most s***, get to say the least s***”. That crowd was awesome. I remember watching the event and being amazed at the unity, support and love. The vibe. Awesome. Much respect. Congratulations on a great night Brazil.

Of course they booed, if i was there i would do that too.

Cant you see that’s a way to help the brazilian fighters?Cuz that make the other fighters unsecure

Who said Brazil isn’t diverse? They’ve obviously never been there… the crowd was hype and I thought it odd that they booed whenever a Brazilian spoke English but I appreciate the pride that reflects… that’s fantastic to see. Via Brazil!

Bring it on …

Junior dos Santos x Brock ? Cmon
Anderson x Chael ? Anderson all he wanted to prove on the first fight that he was a true BJJ black belt…

Jose aldo x ??? Who ??? Cmonnnn be serious ..
Vitor vs Rampage ??? Please

we should do it…

Anderson vs. Jones
Aldo Vs GSP(CANADIAN)

Cmon there are great american fighters but no way to compare… :)

The Americans can´t loose anything. You guys have UFC all the time closes to july 4th, the independence day and do s*** about it!
let´s be honest, the event was great, lots of K.O. like an american likes. you are talking about the crownd was booing when they where on the ground. Hey asshole, do you know what is the “B” before JJ? It´s BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU man. There are no problem to be on the ground!!
They where screaming all the nogueiras fight : CHAO CHAO CHAO ( GROUND GROUND GROUND).
Sorry but an american can´t handle if someone its better then him!!!

I don’t know what’s White’s definition of “good crowd” – I was actually digusted with them chanting something like “kill him” or “kill them”, booing Nedkov after his win etc. Didn’t really like it, and hope next time more Brazilians will be chopped down although match making again will be made the way for Brazlians to win in Brazil.
