I think you have a point here. If he was more like say Weidman's character he would probably be well liked for his determination and the skills he does possess
Maybe he has used his persona to take attention away from the lack of variety in his style and his lack of really good striking (which is what most people love to watch the most)
Funny thing is his striking is a lot better and has shown some more variety in recent times and could possibly have earned some real credit - rather than the bullshit which has been responsible for a large chunk of any attention he's had in the past
