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
