    I think athletic perfomances have to do more with mtDNA, and length of muscular fibers.
    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Εχε υπομονη Ηρωα
    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.

    Well, I'm G2a-Z726 and I'm no fighter. I'm the tall skinny guy who uses humor to try to defuse the situation.

    And . . . since your Y-DNA only represents a very small fraction of your biological inheritance I can't see how this proposition can be true. On the other hand, MMA fighters from the Caucasus being the best? Sure, it's an isolated community that shares a lot, genetically, why not this predisposition?

    Could you provide the source?

    Pater, I think you're agreeing with me. I do not dispute that Caucasians may share physical traits and may be disproportionally MMA type fighters, but that is because they share a basic Caucasian genetic type, that is an autosomal type. Y-DNA is just one small part of your background. I may have many German and English forebears, but both you and I only have one strand of Y-DNA.

    Yeah, I suppose he agrees with you after all, indeed.

    @Pater
    You seem a bit confused also regarding the articles you shared. Fellow, you're jumping to conclusions using binary reasoning and projecting the role of the entire Y chromosome into generic haplogroups.

    Btw, I'd be very interested in the (pre-Indo-European) G-L497 in Dagestan. Make sure to provide the source also to this, when you're back from your trip.
    Thanks in advance.

    Pater, okay. I was afraid you were going down the trail that "we Caucasians are better than anyone because we're G2a." I'm glad to see that I was wrong.

    I don't know what to make of the Nature article (I'm just not knowledgeable enough to have an intelligent opinion) and I haven't paid to read the full study. I'll have to wait for the smart guys on this site to weigh in.

    I have wondered about explainers, including on this site, that claim that our DNA contains many chromosomes that don't do anything, are just "junk." It's seems safer (wiser) to say that they don't do anything 'as far as we know today.' The same goes for saying Y-DNA is just a sex determiner.

    Ops! It seems the part of G-L497 in Dagestan was edited. I should have quoted it.
    Well, well...

    @Shissem
    Don't bother!
