this may have got started off on the wrong foot...lol
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
GSP is just as unpopular with some people as any
His ppv buys and fabnoy bandwagon say otherwise
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?
Johnson - I get the impression those who dislike him wouldn't have liked Benavidez either, some people hate the division.
Henderson- A) Comes off a little preachy with the religous thing. B) his whole swager manerisms come off kinda cocky. C) People don't think he beat Frankie Edgar or loved Frankie Edgar.
and yet this never hurt Matt Hughes fan base
Jones- The guys is a god damn cheat code for MMA. 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.
I agree with whats in bold but disagree with the rest.Superman is a generational thing hes only being spat out by this generation..Yesterdays generation lovd his ass
