Secondly...in terms of "boring" fights....ummm...this Michael Bisping, Forrest Griffin and Spencer Fisher have a high percentage of vapid matches under their belt, yet I dont hear 1/7 of the criticism when it comes to their careers.

Spencer Fisher...vapid???
I don't think I've ever seen a fight with Spencer that he didn't get after it the whole entire fight.
spencer is a beast. period.

bobbo330 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I can honestly say that the only hate that I have towards Rashad stems from his wife's insatiable screaming whenever he wins a fight. I watch his fights and am impressed with his skill set which seems to get better with each fight but I cannot for the life of me cheer for him for the sheer fact that I don't want to hear his wife screaming blooby murder in the background every time he wins.

I think he needs to get KTFO just once so that his wife shuts up. Once that happens I will jump on the Sugar bandwagon .

I think a lot of people who say that they "hate" Rashad just say it without thinking it through. Either that or they're just really big Liddell fans.

His showboating on TUF probably sticks in people's minds too. Man, he was a big douche on that show.

I've never really liked Rashad as a fighter but gotta admit that he's improved and still carries an unblemished record. Hoepfully Forrest will put an end to that!

I dislike Rashad because he comes off as cocky.

After he beat Lidell he was asked if he was surprised by Lidell's punching power. I'm paraphrasing a bit, but his response was:

"Chuck hit me and I was like... That's it!?"

He didn't say Chuck never landed flush. Instead he implies that one of the hardest hitters in the UFC hit him with all he had and he was taken aback by the weakness in his punches.

He also claimed that people didn't like him because he is black.

These are just two examples of why I dislike Rashad. But he's a solid fighter and I think he will womp Griffin.

People don't seem to dislike Rampage or Anderson Silva for being black.

Hmmmmmm....

He's not sweet enough to be sugar, and his record isn't as good as it appears on paper imo.

This is what has annoyed me in the past with Rashad, but I don't dislike him, just annoyed with some of the comments he has said in the past.

That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines.

God some people are ridiculous.

Just because other people don't like a fighter that you do it must be racism right? Wrong, me disliking Rashad has nothing to do with the fact that he's black and the fact that people even bring it up is just pathetic IMO.

As a couple of people have said, him using Ray Robinson's nickname is what has me dislike him. It was the same for me with Ray Leonard. Ray Robinson was a phenomal fighter with no weaknesses in his game. While Evans has improved quite a bit in the last few years, he still hasn't earned that nickname.
