This past weekend we saw two top fighters make their American debut. That got me thinking what current fighters made a mark in their first fight in America.
America is the promised land for most fighters. In America you will fight the best fighters and make the most money.
When looking for these fights, level of competition and titles on the line played a big factor. Also, winning was not necessary but it was very crucial.
On this list we have nine fighters who won, eight fighters who won or retained a title, seven knockouts, two decisions (one UD/one MD), and one fighter who was impressive even in a loss.
