I agree that the UK is coming along and MMA is developing quickly there. They just have a ways to go before they catch up with the USA. Also, USA has a greater population to choose from. Not knocking the UK, just telling what I believe.
I'll readily admit that the USA is far behind other countries when it comes to soccer and a handful of other sports as well.
The USA has a larger population...but its not relative. If it was, half of China would easily be accounted for in your boarders...you are one of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet relative to your size. Secondly...this fact should allow you more options in chosing your best.
Brazil would beat the USA...I expect the Orient would beat the USA...because their cultures are imbeded with the idea of hand to hand combat though a Martial science, and USA is not.
Now it looks like you might be able to add England to that list.. We cant be conquered by you, or you'll weaken our International Standing in MMA
