Is Matt Hughes the most disliked fighter in MMA?

I can't help but notice after the reading some of the posts in the Koscheck/Hughes thread that a lot of people really don't like Hughes, I noticed this on other forums too, and it seems that every fighter has his fair share of haters and fans, Brock, GSP, Sonnen, Anderson, Diaz, you name 'em but I really can't think of many Hughes fans which has me asking this question, is he the most disliked fighter in all of MMA, and why?

I heard he did some pretty messed up stuff in his book, and he handed out Bibles on TUF, but is that really a reason why he has so much hate? He's been one of the most exciting fighters in the game for years but I really haven't seen too many fans of his yet a lot of people are quick to point out the fact they do not like him at all, I myself am not a fan but I'm not a hater either, he's just there for me.

He slept with Ben Rothwells wife, hit on our teammates GFs/Wives, acted like a complete douche in TUF and things of that nature.

I can't say I like Hughes, but I don't dislike or hate him either. I have great respect for what he's accomplished in the sport and I still think he's the greatest WW of all time.

As for most disliked, I'd have to say it's a toss-up between Bisping, Koscheck and Rashad.

Bisping is the P4P Most Hated MMA Fighter. Perhaps the GOAT even...

Though, Hughes (especially at his peak) is up there...

I know there is alot of hate around him however I think we are missing something. I comes of as an ass hole however fighters that everyone like (rich Franklin and chuck) have called Matt one of their best friends so it seems like we have to be missing something.

I prefer him to some other fighters however I can't say the guy is one of my favorites.
