Default british fighters

what do you think of british fighters?

it seems to me they're more comfortable standing up than on the ground.

are they all english or are there some from other parts of the british isles?

who is the best british fighter around at the moment.?

Ronnie Mann, Che Mills and Matt Ewin all fight out of the same team as me and they are all pretty good on the ground. We now have Chico Mendes as a BJJ coach so they will only get better.

For me though Micky Bisping has to be number one.

The main reason we have better standup is because we have no wrestling backgrounds from a young age. In America you have wrestling, in Japan they have Judo, Russia Sambo and in Brazil... We on the other hand grow up with brawling in the playgrounds

You wont see the best of British fighters at world level for another 2 - 3 years , at the moment the young generation of British fighters are a scary pool of talent , and the gyms and fight teams are still refining there academy's to get to the level of the top American based fight teams / gyms .

The standard of MMA in Britain on the whole is good , we will always struggle with wrestling , and first and foremost we love a tear up , i dont think that will ever change .

Right then, your trolling to hide your lack of knowledge is one thing, but dissing British fighters is the last straw it's time for me to defend there honour by some good ole fashion trash talk UK style So here we go...

Go back and listen to Abba ya Swedish Eurovision winning ****ing meatball! Maybe if your men werent to worried about the carbon emissions in their Toyota ****in Prisus' they actually have the balls to get in the Octagon like our boys Hardy, Daley and The Count. If you want to talk about real men, come from a country where the most famous men arent Benny & Bjorn writing songs about being dumped by a red head with giant teeth. If it wasnt for us and the Yanks you'd be in the Hitler Youth right now shouting 'Zeig Heil' in your pacifist laden Fjord hole.

You are quick to make jokes bout Bispings punching power,well it's true, Fedor tapped Werdums leg harder than Michael punches. No disrespect to Fedor but you're clearly a noob with no idea about MMA except for lame ass 'Fedor good/Brock bad/GSP boring' posts ya idiot

So let me finish up with a good ole fashioned STFU NOOB! Come back and talk trash when you have at least 2000 posts. This is ESB, not Sherdog, respect the post count and only speak when your spoken to you Feb join date nappy wearer or you'll get a spanking

We kicked your nordic asses in 1066 and Id take a Brit over Swede in the cage any ****ing day. The closet your boys have come to a real fight is singing about a war we won in the Eurovision song contest! Now kindly **** off and Yodel!

Personally I think the highest kudos and respect should go to those with the lowest post-count. As it means they probably have a life, you know, real girlfriends, jobs and stuff. Present company excepted of course, as I'm sure you have a wonderfully rich and exciting life.

You really should hold back, I'm sure the poor guys in tears, after you insulted Abba like that, (slightly suspicious that you know so much about the pop group incidentally)
