Do you support fighters based on their nationality? For instance, would you root for Jon Jones against Gustaffson in their rematch even if you think he's a giant tool bag?
Fighter. Perfect example the Klitschko brothers. Most don't know they have Ph.D.s and are total badasses!
They're an incredible example plus they're nicknames sound like comic villains
The only fighting I watch is in hockey.
I go for the fighter. If he's American, it's a bonus.
I support fighters who are awesome people and still manage to put up a hell of a fight. Nationality is a detail that makes no import whatsoever.
I go for the fighter over the country.
