I like watching all three of them compete but Edgar won that fight and should be the champ right now. Mighty Mouse is the only one I actively root for though because of the blandness and overly religious nature of Bendo and Bones is just a trainwreck from a personality standpoint and uses somewhat dirty tactics at times.

What? Really because people were hanging all over Jones nuts up until he became champ. The Rashad thing was the first stone with Jones and theb the demolishing begun.

Same with Bendo he has gradually become less popular in the UFC due to his increased exposure.

Exactly, non of that garbage has anything to do with fans/ufc or mma..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
I never have and I never will like Ben Henderson, I hated Frankie when he was the Champ but once he started fighting Ben I started rooting for him and eventually he turned me into a fan, and now I'm rooting for Nate against him, and as far as Jones go, I've always liked him, the only time I've rooted against him was against Machida and that was only because Lyoto is my favorite, had nothing to do with Jon at all.

I still like Carlos, I still like Dominick, and I still like Junior as much as I've ever liked them, I'm sure if Dodson won the belt, my opinion of him wouldn't change, I'd still be a fan.

I wish he took himself out with his shitty Bently, then he could thank god personally for all his accomplishments.
Leben gets drunk and smashes his car into a building like twice a week and got popped for steroids and a bunch of people still like him.

Anderson is absolutley loved but because of his dominance he needs a stronger dance partner to make people believe he can lose.
how many times have we seen wrestlers take him down.With analysts playing up the narrative that he has weak TDD.Yet hes still undefeated in the ufc.Any other fighter and that would be enough but once AS disposes of a wrestler after the fact suddenly they were never good enough

Never hurt Matt Hughes fan base? When was Hughes so beloved? The guy was never really popular and drew poor numbers in his day.
neither has rich franklin really but a large part of the ufc core audience acted like these fighters shit didnt stink

Henderson may not draw PPV's but nobody under WW besides BJ Penn ever has.
true but u cant say edgar received the same amount of vitriol bendo did after his controversial title victory

Kreed, Again, what is your opinion on it? Why do you think these specific fighters aren't liked as much in your opinion? You have stated you think they are, but tell us why?

WTF is wrong with the quote system?

I don't put too much weight in what fighters do outside the cage unless its a chronic thing like an alcoholic or drug user. Jon Jones made a mistake with the DUI, other than that I don't care if he's cocky, smug or whatever have you call it.

I watch these guys for what they do inside the ring, and I'm entertained by JBJ, and its funny how people rag on JBJ for his DUI and other stuff, but I guarantee you some of the same people like some of the other fighters who have similar problems.

People rooted for Bones to win the belt from Shogun. Since then the success got a little to his head and the cockiness came out. Now people know he's one of the best in the world, and they're rooting to see someone dethrone him.

Bendo is kind of "just there", hard to really like or dislike him. Nobody cares about Flyweights, has nothing to do with MM.

jones has all the fans he needs. im a fan of fights, after that its all meh to me.

i enjoy watching some of bendo's fights and a good deal of mighty mouses fights as well.

fans still pay to see jones, whether you like jones or not, you talk about him and pay attention to him he makes more money, directly and indirectly.

im sure a guy like demetrious and that fly div will catch on, it just will take some time.

and lol, i get the feeling thats not what the op feels is the reason.

oh i get it-its because their black right?
