Its not skin tone, Joseph Benavidez was no more popular going into the flywieght fight than MightyMouse.
Rampage and Rashad have both been more popular at LHW. Jones still does have the whole 151 cloud hanging over him right now which doesn't help either. But its largely his dominance and the fact he has been crushing everyone's favorites.
Ben Henderson is religious and talks about god you know who else everyone hated for doing that? Matt Hughes. Ben Henderson is the urban Matt Hughes kinda arrogant and religious which comes off self righteous. Or maybe Hughes is the redneck Ben Henderson who knows but they are disliked for similar reasons.
Lastly Anderson Silva.
