Can't find a reason to hate either of them tbh. I also can't find a reason to complain about the fact the Bendo is the champ. You should know by now how the sport philosophy works. The only way the truly decisively win a fight is to FINISH, which is what Frankie didn't do. The guy who won the fight was whoever the judges felt won, which was Bendo. So now he's the champ. Deal with it.

I don't like this Bendo(ver) guy. He won Frankie by fluke and by the request of someone behind the scene to save the lightweight division, which wasn't making GOOD MONEY for them!

That's how I see it. Frankie was ROBBED twice from this guy who clowns and smiles like a lamer.

Nothing near to JBJ!

The guy brags about praising God and everything and then he went all 209 on Edgar, he's a ******* piece of shit and I hope Nate ****s him up.
Wait what??? You think people would hate someone because they admitted to smoking weed?? Its probably the opposite.

Last i heard he was bragging about snitching on his college roommate for smoking weed.

I don't really see too many similarities between the two to be honest. Like others have said they are both religious, both confident, and both black, but so are a ton of other fighters.

I agree with the above. The main similarity is just that they are new champions who have recently beat a lot of the established guys in their divisions that had a lot of fans. beating peoples favorite fighters isn't a way to win people over, but hey it's gotta be done.

Personally I think Jon Jones kicks all kinds off ass and I can't wait to see what he will do next. Guy is just a machine.

As for the whole mentioning god when you win debate I personally don't like it, but to call me a bigot? I think that goes too far. I have no problem with it, just a strong belief in god is not something I respect. My extremely strong disbelief in god makes me feel that way. When I find qualities in a fighter that I can relate too it makes me like them more. When I find out things about a fighter I can't relate too it makes it harder to relate.

I used to think you genuinely were racist. I used to feel for sorry for you that you had such a narrow minded and hateful few of the world. Now i'm starting to realize you are just a forum troll and racism is your MO.

I wish I could be a mod for a day. There is nothing I would love more than to send you on a vacation.

Thats all well and good but can you explain why such an affable down to earth individual like henderson could have such a pack of detractors already? He mostly takes part in good fights, rarely trash talks or showboats.All he does is win yet fans refuse to warm to him.Going as far as to compare him to jones? ask yourself why every1 is now using the same buzzword of "hes cocky" to justify their hatred of him.That narrative doesnt even make sense when talkin about ben henderson, its asinine

I think it has a lot to do with the fact some people think he lost twice and still has the belt. couple that with beating well liked fighters in edgar, guida before his last fight, and miller, as well as the aformentioned post fight praising of god, and i can see why some people don't like him.

Im sure some people dont like him because he is black too, but i truly believe the number is way smaller than you seem to think.

I think he will gain a following and also a long line of haters, just like all champs. Being white sure hasnt stopped massive GSP hate.

Was that so hard to come at this discussion maturely and formulate your opinion without the infantile insults?
