Hate em or Love em - The Best Promotors in the game

There has been a lot of talk lately on the whole Ken Shamrock scandal, bj accusing GSP taking roids, Tito signing with Elite XC...and how much negative criticism comes with this sort of publicity. They say in hollywood, "any publicity is good publicity" and I think this applies to mma as well. Guys like Tito Ortiz, Matt Hughes, BJ Penn, Tim Silvia, Matt Serra, Kimbo Slice...and the list goes on...have certain personalities that make you hate or love that person. Either way, it makes you want to watch their fights. So in the end, your hatred contributes to $ in their pockets bc you're the one buying the PPV's.

With that said, who is your favorite fighter that you love to hate? You also need to say something positive about this hatred.

I never liked Tito, I was a Shamrock supporter. Although, I must say, he knows how to sell fights and make his company money.

Chuck Liddell, I love the guy. And he's a posterboy, you just gotta watch him because you expect a hardcore knockout every time he fights.

Rashad Evans, because everyone (not me and some others) want to see him lose.

Sokoudjou, pornstar. Need I say more?

Randy Couture, hero of the sport. People want to watch an old guy beat everyone up.

This has nothing to do with the UFC so General MMA here it comes.

Frank Shamrock-he sold fans on the fact that he would fight Cung Lee standing up. WTF, and you lost. I was disappointed b/c I was conned into thinking that he would do his best.

I hate the over the hill fighter making sure that everyone knows they are in the best shape of their lives, that training is going well and then get dusted because they can't avoid punches nor can they throw them-read Ken Shamrock.

Something positive abotu this hatred: I think it is well deserved.
