There's no fighters that I straight up hate.

However, the following fighters talk an awful lot of shit:

Penn
Mir
Sonnen
Lesnar
Ortiz

  1. Michael Bisping - I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory, but just in case it's not, I'll walk through my reasons. He talks a lot of unnecessary smack to build hype and maintains that he's one of the top fighters in the world while putting down a much more accomplished veteran in Dan Henderson. I had a hard time feeling bad for Bisping about the late shot.
  2. C.B. Dollaway - I just find him irritating. He had a great submission when he put away Jesse Taylor, but it didn't really redeem his whining about the stoppage when he tapped to Amir's armbar in the TUF finale. He's been a favorite in every fight he's gone in to since the Taylor fight and he's still only 2-1.
  3. Dan Hardy - I don't really dislike Hardy, but he's a really popular fighter that I'm indifferent towards. I have a hard time getting excited about his upcoming title fight, because he's not presenting anything I haven't seen before, and he's the worst guy Georges has fought in about two years. Frankly, I don't think Hardy is the best British fighter in his division (Semtex is a more interesting prospect to me) and the fact that Hardy is getting a title shot after four UFC fights and one win over a (barely) top ten fighter makes it hard to be happy about him.
  4. Cheick Kongo - I liked the idea of Kongo as a prospect. He's a massive, athletic fighter with great striking. But his ability to train so much without evolving is really bothersome. I realize he's fought a couple of very technical grapplers in Velasquez and Mir, but he didn't really put up much defense against either, and the fights he's won have been against lower grade competition (Evenson, Hardonk and Al Turk are not in the same tier that Kongo should be competing in).
  5. Houston Alexander - Again, I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory, but I'll say that this spot was probably occupied by Kimbo Slice up until recently. Alexander's performance against Kimbo was one of the worst performances of all time. Not quite as bad as Kalib Starnes (vs. Nate Quarry) but pretty damn terrible.

Just have to laugh at all the people who chose Bisping, who is one of my TOP 5 fav fights btw, seems to be he is one all you guys much really love, else you would not slash him so bad, even if its because you love to hate him.

My List

1. Tito - Because he is just a dick

2. Couture - Thats rite I hate Captain America his record is not great he just took advantage of a week time in the UFC and was given title shots that he did not really deserve

They are the only 2 fighters that I really dislike but if I have to pick 3 more they are

Brock
Diaz
Guida

Couture does have some very good wins under his belt. He has beaten Kevin Randleman, Pedro Rizzo twice, Vitor Belfort twice, Chuck Liddell in his prime, Tito Ortiz, Tim Sylvia, Brandon Vera and Mark Coleman. He had a good fight with Nog and did the best against Lesnar so far besides Mir taking a beating and pulling off a sub.

I will agree that his record is not that great as it stands at 17-10 but he has fought and beaten top competition.

I don't think he beat Chuck in his prime. It was almost like, Liddell got good AFTER Randy beat him. IDK, just seemed that way. Tim Sylvia is not a big win, Randleman I'll give you because it was at the time, his wins aren't really all that impressive NOW. But, if you look back at the time he was winning, they were very impressive. That's why he is so popular with fans, not because of NOW, but because of THEN.

I think Liddell was a great win. He was dominating at the time and I think he just overlooked Couture. Also Tim Sylvia was good at the time when Couture beat him.

I think that would have been a different fight if Sylvia had not been so sick. Not making excuses, he could have still lost, I just don't think it would have been as dominant.

I'm not dis crediting Randy at all, I like the guy and he's a great fighter, just saying his most impressive wins were years ago, not now.

I get what you are saying. The divisions just weren't as stacked like they are today. It's all relative though. When he beat them it was great back then. I do think he needs to do a little more than what he has right now to get a title shot though. I know they are talking about that.
