What are some things you hate/dislike about a fighter you like?
 
For instance, im a shogun fan and always will be... but goddamn everytime I see him go for that sh!tty kneebar of him I wanna kill myself lol.

Or diaz, I hate how he stuck to his gameplan in the condit fight for 5 rounds when it was obviously not working. I just wished he didn't just move forward when condit run (yes run!!) but went for a double or the clinch or SOMETHING.

Goddamn Feijao and Thiago Silva popping hot.. That really disappoints me. Edson getting KOed by Varner was disappointing aswell, but he'll be back. Nick Diaz not showing up to things, the press conference didn't annoy me as much as the aftermath from it, but the BJJ tourney left a bad taste in my mouth. Condit's intelligent gameplan, I really wanted them both to stand in the middle of the octagon and slug it out Shogun V Hendo style. Uncle Creepy V Mighty Mouse 1&2.

Someone changing their fighting style for a fight.

Obvious two would be Condit and Guida.

You can have a gameplan. "Go for the takedown, go for submissions" etc. but you're a fighter who believes in his abilities. If you then completley change from an exciting fighting style to a boring one just for the win, I hate that as a fan. I was a Guida fan before that fight. His relentless wrestling style defined him, but now I see him as a strategist who doesnt care about having a good fight. My favourite fighters are fight of the night fighters.

Also, people who leave it too late to expload. Wanderlei left it until the last 20 seconds of the Franklin fight to go for it. I'd prefer to be knocked out in the 5th when I'm down on the cards than lose by clean decision. As sooon as the 5th bell goes, throw until you get KOed or KO your opponent.

Mine used to be Rampage fighting so one dimensional in the UFC . I really wanted him to mix it up more like he did in pride.

Dan Hardy when he went through his stage of JUST throwing lead left hook after lead left hook... He used to have a much better attack.

When Arlovski decided to replaced his chin with a glass vase...

Leben getting sloppy in both real life and in fights. When he is clean and focused he is actually better than the sum of his skills. When he is drugged up, boozed up, or gets stupid sloppy in his striking looking for the power shot he loses, and looks bad doing it.

Huge Leben fan and out of everything I hope he overcomes the demons in his life.

QFT

Maybe it's just me but does anyone else hate to see people break mentally against bones.

Rampage,rashad,machida even shogun a bit all were coming in the fight with good faith. Though the moment he starts using his reach or some of those flashy moves it like they freez up -.-

I really understand it's damn easy to talk like this if your not in there fighting yourself, but come on their elite proffesional fighters.... they should look pass that stuff.

Actually like seeing this because it shows how dominate he is. Same thing happens to most of Anderson Silva's opponents if he hasn't KO'ed them yet. You KNOW their opponents are talented and among the top 1% of their weight class, yet they walk in against either of these men and within a round you usually see a change in their approach, they are questioning what they are doing. You can see their battle plans just fly off and then they start trying to wing it from there.

Condit's strategy against Nick.

Kampmann's tendency to grapple with grapplers and strike with strikers. It's also one of the reasons I like watching him.

Cruz doesn't finish fights.

Overeem's 'testosterone problems'.

Nick Diaz really hates the media. So the media hate him. I hate that the media hate him.

I like some of the guys who aren't the most popular guys in the eyes of the fans. Anything dumb that comes out of the mouth or Bisping or Tito.
