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
Why would my stance change on Dodson? As a fan, wouldn't I be happy if he won the belt?

I'd be more interested in the division with Dodson as champ.

Who cares. All that went out the window when he wrapped his car around a pole drunk.

I wish he took himself out with his shitty Bently, then he could thank god personally for all his accomplishments.

Why would an MMA fan be pissed off that Jones had a DUI? Doesnt make sense to me.

Anderson Silva has been hurt because of a lack legitimately threatening challengers and his horrendous fights with Leites and Maia. Anderson is absolutley loved but because of his dominance he needs a stronger dance partner to make people believe he can lose.

Never hurt Matt Hughes fan base? When was Hughes so beloved? The guy was never really popular and drew poor numbers in his day.

Henderson may not draw PPV's but nobody under WW besides BJ Penn ever has.

I'm not pissed off. It just give people another reason to dislike him. As if we didn't have enough reasons all ready.

Also, about a month before it happened he was quoted as saying "You never have to worry about me with a DWI or doing something crazy."

Oh, the irony.

Why don't you tell us your opinion on why these champions are not liked?

If this incident didnt kill a fellow ufc fighter, lead to the postponement of an event or worse why does it bother you? are you his dad?

Because his status would change, he wouldnt be the the underdog clawing for that nut.Hed be the undisputed best which might bred contempt.You cant say the perception towards bendo/jones didnt change during the course of their ascension

People were calling Silva the GOAT back when Sonnen was throwing jabs while Paul Fihlo talked to his imaginary friend.
