You wouldn't watch a Bones vs Anderson fight just because they don't hate each other? I'd pay 3 times as much for that as I'd pay for any bad blood fight. It's about the skills, not how much crap they talk.
Sonnen vs Anderson II was interesting because of the 4.5 rounds of pounding in the first fight against a guy that looked invincible. Phil baroni talks crap all he wants but no one cares.
Well obviously when I say bad blood I also mean the fighters have to be pretty good as you mentioned with chael/anderson example, and I would watch jones vs anderson but without having someone to root for it would be pretty hard for me to enjoy, but I would be on jones side anyways just to make a new phenom from beating the GOAT.
