When the spotlight hits, and the lights shine on certain fighters, they shine. Others simply don't. Every city, state, commonwealth, and country has them. But what does your area have to offer?
I am conducting a series based on the best fighters from certain areas over the next few weeks. Please note that the fighters I am mentioning do not have to be born/living in that area, but may also be training (i.e. Rashad Evans isn't from New Mexico, but may be included in that section because of his training there).
As a part of this, I welcome any feedback and/or requests for areas, so long as there is more than one prominent fighter from the area. Examples of good areas might be Iowa, California, etc... Bad examples include Utah, and Rhode Island.
Not to say these areas don't have good fighters, but they just doesn't suit this series.
I will profile the three best fighters from each area, and give as much background information available for them as possible. Feedback will be very much appreciated.
