mixedmartialarts.com and Sherdog have good ones, and even Wikipedia is servicable. But Newsday put together a database of all Long Island-based fighters who've made it to the UFC, and while the cause behind it is noble - celebrating the hometown heroes who made it to the big leagues - there's something fundamentally sad about the whole thing.
There are only 13 entries.
Sure, our sport is just 20 years old, and the pool of talent as a whole is still relatively small. But 13.... damn.
Anyway, check it out. It worth looking at to remind you who those lone 13 guys are.
