Seems eventually all the champs get hated.

Lesnar
Silva
Gsp
Rousey
Jones


Give it another year
And Weidman and Pettis will be on that list



I think these people wearing the belt has the least to do with what people think of them.

Lesnar fans piss off mma fans because of the unstoppable frate trane crap coupled with UFCs coddling of him.
Silva has detractors for showboating/weird behavior and and a little bit is also him perceived as being overrated because of MWs depth during his regin.
GSP didn't make people just bleed enough, was to good at winning fights to make those people happy.
Rousay and Jones are a couple of bona fide dips.

Couple that in with these guys being good enough to win against many peoples favoreit fighters over the years. People already have reasons for not liking Pettis as it is, but since he is on extended leave there is little reason to discuss it. Chris it keeping it cool for the most part though and the biggest gripe anyone has against him are his unsavory wins against Silva.

There really are almost no guys in the sport who are universally liked, especially amoung the elite.

I live pretty close to Lafayette, Louisiana. Can't help but pull for Cormier

Look great. Only problem is, Jon Jones is not Dan Henderson sans grandpa juice.

Agreed. Jon Jones is no Hendo, BUT I did not see him dismantling Hendo like he did. Big surprise for me. If the DC that fought Hendo shows up for Bones, He should surprise a lot of people, win or lose I think he has a bigger arsenal and more up his sleeve than we've seen. Just not side kicks

Jones for sure. I can't wait to see the DC fan boys crying when Jones ruins their slumber party.

Two words( ELBOW STRIKES )Bones is going to slice and dice every time DC thinks he just going to walk in on Jones. DC has never fought anyone like Jon. And when it's over the haters will still hate but Jones becomes the new GOAT as far as i'm concerned.

I think Cormier has awakened the beast. I got Jones via TKO in the 1st. Ground and Pound elbows.

I really enjoyed watching jones come up,very humble and awe inspiring.....then he took a heel turn and likes to poke eyes and stomp knees......

Dc was a replacement in the strikeforce hw gp and won me a shitload of money as he tore through the tourney.he can hang and even beats up on cain and if you know me you know im all about them HWs.being an olympic class wrestler helps.


WAR DC hope he destroys cocky ass chicken legs......

I met both guys before.

Just never was a Cormier fan. Don't know why.

Jones is a fav of mine.


He is a fucking jerk off. Prima Donna
But all he is to me is a fighter. Don't care about his business outside the cage.
Always been a fan. Enjoyed his fights a lot.

I even have the very first jon Jones signature shirt
Got it at the first ufc expo. Ufc 100
It was a exclusive silver star shirt.
Doesn't even say his name Jones.
Says johnny bones. With a skull pirate style
I'll be wearing it on sat. Win or lose.

If Cormier becomes champ. Good for him but I will never jump on the train just like I won't ever for Weidman


That's the beauty of champs

Some you love and want to win
And some you hate and can't wait to see lose their title

I think in this sport you need both

Jones still hasn't got that one strike clean ko. He could very well get it with his reach tomorrow.
I think dc will have some success but jones will regroup take control and get the ko sometime in the 3rd.
