I understand not wanting to judge people based on the tiny glimpse we see in interviews. But IMO with many of these fighters we get a good feeling on who they are and the small look is often times enough for to say that's either someone I would love to sit down with and have a conversation and someone who would probably annoy the crap out of me. I would love to sit down with Hendo, Wandy, Chuck, JDS and a number of guys. I'm sure Kos, Bisping and Bones would annoy the hell out of me.

I hate Chael Sonnen for the character he loves to play and how he always feels the need to be that created character. There are times where Chael drops the act and he is a very intelligent and seemingly pleasant person. But the fact that he goes into this character so often and actually used that character to remain relevant just annoys the shit out of me. I hate him more knowing he is actually a decent person but chooses to be a character.

Anderson silva I use to be a fan( eventhough he dominated rich) but have grown to hate him after after the crap he pulled in the fight with damion Maia.

Personality wise, I've grown to like Pat Barry. But fighting wise, I think he needs to vastly improve his wrestling, and BJJ. Maybe even possibly look at making a drop down to 205.

You know his extremely genuine show of emotion following his last fight which took place shortly after the elementary school shooting really hit me. I'm not ashamed to admit I teared up a bit.

I can see why people hate Hughes and even Chuck. But why in the would would anyone hate Ace or Stann? Are you just anti-American?

Clay Guida.

His earlier battles with Huerta and Sanchez were awesome! I used to love watching him.

Then the Gomi fight happened and I was like, WTF is he DOING?

THEN the Maynard fight happened and I wanted to punch him in the dick.

Chael Sonnen. The wrestling fan in me follows this guy around like I had never heard the work smark before. He was a bad guy, so I hate him. Now he's a good guy, so I like him. The guy has his roles nailed.

Roy Nelson. Loved the guy, although I hadn't seen his TUF series with the exception of him laying on top of Kimbo Slice for a while. That was up until this TUF. I hated him in it. He's lazy and didn't give a damn about his fighters. But then, he went in there and smashed his next opponent, so I don't know where I stand. Edging towards hate.

Dan Henderson. I hated him in TUF and was dying for Bisping to beat him. He had no personality and was just a downer at every moment. It wasn't until we were getting closer to the Fedor fight that I started liking him, and now he's one of my favourites since then.

Bisping. Didn't really like him in the beginning but after a while I learned to appreciate his humour and wit.

Roy Nelson. I was actually a fan of this guy...until he pulled off that Facebook publicity stunt. What a douchebag. Watched the TUF season with him as a coach and I was disgusted at his attitude. Got around to watching the TUF 10 and it sure did his image no favours.

Rashad. I don't even know why I used to dislike him back then. Maybe because everyone on this board was criticising him for sitting out for the title shot, and it got to me as well. Really started to appreciate how good he really is lately though. And he seemed like a really nice guy and a good coach in TUF 10.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

I hated Rashad early on for his cocky attitude in and out of the cage. I can't remember who he fought where he did the nut grab but I hated it. Since he was KO'd by Machida he isn't near as cocky in the cage and at times seems OK out of it. Still don't care for him though but I don't hate him like I use to.
