I was a bit bored this morning and I've been reading a lot about big sporting events coming in 2010. I'm a big soccer fan and with it being World Cup year it got me thinking about the best MMA nations.
So I have come up with a little bit of an interesting idea as I am a fan of doing Fantasy Football teams. Here is the challenge; You have to pick a team of 5, 1 from each weight class (Heavyweight-Lightweight), they all most be from a different country.
It seems pretty obvious but its not as easy as you think. Below is what I have come up with, see if you come up with any better.
Heavyweight - Fedor Russia
LightHeavyweight - Forrest Griffin USA
Middleweight - Anderson Silva Brazil
Welterweight - GSP Canada
Lightweight - Shinya Aoki Japan
I think my Fantasy 5 is pretty solid. With so many of the top fighters coming from USA and Brazil it makes it tricky. Just a bit of fun, I look forward to your picks.
