So what¿ In every sport the underdog mostly gets some kind of support. That doesn't necessarily mean any hate for the stronger opponent is involved. Machida was more or less the only one (except for Evan's almost lucky head kick) to show at least a glimpse skill and ability to pose some sort of "trouble" to Jones. So why not let people fantasize about him exploiting that glimpse a little more in a rematch¿
Everyone knows how strong Jones is, so it's not hard to predict how he will most probably do against any opponent.
