“It just comes with being me, man, it just comes with the job,” Jones said. “People hate guys who are good what they do. It happens with all dominant teams — people want to see them lose. They can’t find anything to say about my game, so they attack (my) personality. You’ve got to bring down the guy on top, some way, some how. Even saying this, people will be like, ‘What an arrogant bastard.’ Even though I’m just telling the truth."
Good for you Jones! You just hit the nail on the head...
What ever happened to bandwagoning?
Dominic Cruz - Not a lot of hate, but he's a bit of a boring character so not a lot of attention is given to him.
Jose Aldo - Never seen anyone say a bad word about him. Maybe some people prefer KZ or Edgar but no one dislikes Aldo.
Ben Henderson - He gets hate, but it's because people feel like he doesn't deserve to be the champion. I'm not a fan of him, but I don't have an issue with him and do feel that he deserves to be the champion, even though I edged Edgar in the second fight.
GSP - People want to see him lose, but no one really HATES him. He is boring, we all know it. But he is a nice guy, is a committed guy and everyone respects his abilities. I haven't really see anyone hate him though, he hasnt really done much to warrent it.
Anderson Silva - Greatest of all time. If he gets hate, it's from a "hater", and I hate people who say haters "I'm a hater I guess". Everyone respects Silva and everyone likes to see him do something special when he gets out there.
Junior Dos Santos - If someone wants him to lose, they are a Cain Velasquez fan. Everyone loves this guy unless he's fighting your favourite. Great personality and very talented fight who brings something different to the table.
Jon Jones - Most people hate him.
