I dont really think that liking a fighter because of his background or out of the ring behavior is all that bad, it allows the fan to associate themselves with the fighter and therefore creates a closer connection (at least in the fans eyes). Although what i do think is stupid is when people feel they HAVE to support a fighter because of where they are from and so on.

just my opinion

Favorite Fighters
Anderson Silva (MW)
Randy Couture (HW)
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (LHW)
Roger Huerta (LW)
Karo Parisyan (WW)
