That's exactly how I feel about JBJ. Is there an interview out there where he hasn't mentioned religion/god, and come off as looking incredibly self-righteous?

I hate jones for the same reasons many do. (basically, his mouth & ego)

I'm actually fine with Bendo, altho the preachy crap is annoying. (I don't watch his interviews or anything tho, so that helps) I normally dig his fights, so hey. :]

MM = OK in my book. Squirrel-y little dude. :]

Come on be honest the first guy you made when got Undisputed for Xbox was Jon Jones, he likely wasn't named Jon Jones and he didn't look like Jones hell he may not have even been a LHW but it was Jones. You made a tall guys with absurd reach and gave him a strong wrestling base. After that you gave him a bunch of real nasty super moves like spinning back fists and elbows, superman punches and sidekicks. Nasty GNP, good ground game. You know why Superman isn't as popular as the Avengers,X-Men, Batman or Spiderman? Vulnerabilities and adversity. Jones is Superman he seems to have every freaking super power.
[quote=M.C;1629905]I don't necessarily "dislike" Jones, but if I had a list of top fighters that I would love to see KO'd, he would be right at the top of the list - for the whole UFC 151 situation.

Ben lost to Edgar, Edgar was robbed, not Ben's fault therefore I don't "dislike" Ben either, but I call a spade a spade and Ben should have lost that fight.[quote]But u were fine with forrest win over rampage or lyoto's over shigun right?

Actually I thought Rampage/Forrest could have gone either way, and at first I did think Lyoto won a very close decision but that opinion has changed since seeing it a few more times.

For me - JBJ is a smug, cocky, prick of a human being. I've stopped watching any and all interviews with him, because I want to smash him in the face with a hammer every time he opens his mouth.
But dont u see some of these qualities make him one of the only truly intriguing MMA personalities today? an MMA "champion" thats a freak of nature on top of his game making his mark and maiming names.Yet you refuse to to witness such accomplishments? because u dont like his off octagon demeanor? "are u a fan of mixed martial arts"

And I'm indifferent to Mighty Mouse, I like his fights but I'm not a fan or anything, but guess what, I do like JOHN DODSON, HE'S BLACK!!!!
john dodson isnt a champion I am sure if he was your stance would miraculously waver

As for the other 2, I didn't realize they were getting a lot of hate. I think it probably has more to do with the fact that a lot of people aren't interested in the 125-145 divisons.
[quote=Budhisten;1629899]fair enough but if edgar and benny were champs i am sure the mma populace would be more accommodating

Lastly Anderson Silva.
Looks like u have uncovered something I overlooked.Anderson silva is suffering the same fate as all the champions I mentioned in my first post.Here is a guy that fights excitingly and rarely ever under performs yet hes starving for fans? how does that work?

Hughes was/is still hated by many people for this and other reasons, what are you talking about? Hughes was once THE most hated MMA fighter out there, even when he was a champion.

EVERYONE knew AS and most considered him to potentially be the GOAT, or at least second behind Fedor.
