Likeable fighting style and likeable personality don't always go hand in hand, many of my favorite fighters have opened their mouths or acted in some way that makes them drop right down my list of 'liked' fighters. I'll still watch them fight, but it makes it even more exciting as they now have the possibility of getting KTFO. I also don't mean the Kalib Starnes's of the world either, they have to be slightly relevant.
So, in that vein, if there is a fighter that really grinds your gears, I want to know about it
This is not a diss thread. Be respectful in your opinions

For me, Matt Hughes takes the cake. He's arrogant and tries to force his beliefs on others, he's also overly racist and a bully. Benson Henderson is another I'm not too fond of.

To answer the question though, it's pretty rare that I dislike anyone. The only fighters that bother me are ones who use terrible gameplans. It bothers me seeing guys like Jorge Gurgel, it's just frustrating to watch. Fight to win, not to look tough.

As far as personalities go, I don't really dislike any fighters that I can think of. The one thing that really makes me dislike people more than anything is people who pretend they know what they're talking about when they clearly don't. I don't mind ignorance, but ignorance veiled as intelligence drives me nuts.

You'll rarely hear me say anything bad about any fighter, but Tito and Bisping consistently irritate me.

Wanderlei



Is it because he said this about Chael?



He fights with his mouth. He’s not a top guy. He creates that style and looks for guys to give attention to him. But face to face, he’s like a kid. He’ll cry like a baby, man. I don’t know what kind of man can say something bad about you then say, "Hey Wanderlei, let’s shake hands." F** you man. You talked some bad things. I’m old school. You’re talking some bulls*** about me, don’t shake my hand. This guy lost respect from me. Not one fighter respects him. I don’t like his style and I hope Anderson Silva kicks his ass. I think Anderson will be knock out Chael in the third round.


He was right about everything except the finish, Chael got knocked out in the second round He never said anything inflammatory. The only thing I don't like about Wanderlei is those stupid pork pie hats.

I voted for Koscheck.
It was close between him and Bisping though.
Koscheck just bugs me.

Bisping Sonnen Hughes in that order..... I dont dislike them, I despise them..... Bad for the image of the sport too. How could Mir or Lesnar not take the GSP spot?

I like Kos even though he seems like a genuinely bad jocky type, but he never seemed to hurt the whole image of the sport... I like Rashad quite a bit, not a bad guy at all, just cocky and goofy..... I just thik people always hated seeing a chubby arrogant black guy come in and flatline Liddell and Forrest when Rashad never seemed the part. Sorry for the race card but this is about the only time I can imagine it applying.

My only response is

“Have you heard the things I say about him? Those are fighting words. Those are fighting words from the time I was a kid in the third grade through the time I’m a 30 year old man right now. If somebody says that about you, you must fight him. And he ducked me for six years.”

“I'd put Anderson Silva out for a year and when I'm done with that I'm gonna put GSP out for a decade.”

What really happened

Fight 1


Fight 2


You should appreciate that Chael, you obviously dont like submissions, but you LOVE ground and pound.... difference is Anderson finishes fights with his ground and pound, he doesnt dry hump and kiss his opponents while smothering pillowfists all over them


Oh yeah, who could forget this gem....



Anyway, you do talk well when youre not screaming from broken bonez.....

Anyway, better do something in the sport before you get as old as mr Burns.....

Haha no, I think everyone is a little racist, it's natural. As long as you judge individuals by their individual merit and not by their race.

To the other guy who asked my how Matt Hughes is racist, there are many items of evidence, plus you can tell by the way he acts and treats black people, it's obvious.
