POLL: Who would you root for if they fought tomorrow?
Michael "The Count" Bisping
Anthony "Rumble" Johnson
Bisping just won the distinguished 2011 MMAPlayground.com Award for "Most Hated Fighter of 2011" by a landslide over Chael and Kos.
Now that they're in the same division (well they're supposed to be), and Rumble has turned many fans away by his double digit weight miss and brash, f-bomb filled, responses directed at MMA fans..... Who would you root for to win?
Bisping by a lot. If they actually did fight I think he would win a fairly decisive UD via sprawl and brawl. I didn't like Rumble before this, but now he's one of my absolute least favorite more so for his unprofessional dumbass behavior than the actual weight issue itself. He's handled this as poorly as possible and it's not the first time.
I'd also root for Bisping.
Nothing is going to change my opinion of Bisping. It's a lot lower than my opinion of Rumble.
I don't root for chaps that spit at another man.....Rumble!
thats a no brainer, definitely RUMBLE, it pissed me when he missed weight and i hope he looses to vitor, but after that i hope he is successful at 185lbs. ill never root for spitzbing.
I feel like people don't even know why they hate Bisping anymore, they just hate him for the sake of hating him. On the other end, you've got Rumble, who has given you just about every possible reason to hate him, yet there's all these people trying to defend him. The dude tells his fans to eat a dick when they criticize him for missing weight! Wtf?
Both these guys are pretty annoying, i'd pull for Rumble he's disrespectful and always has issues with wieght but i'd root for him over Spitzbing anyday, never been a fan of Bisping and never will be, Hendo knocking his head into the 7th row at ufc 100 was my favourite moment ever.
Easily be cheering on Bisping.

Do you want a list?
Rumble without a doubt. Weigh-in issues aside, I like the guy. A lot of people are downing him for how he's handled the situation and what he's said toward the fans, but can you really blame him? MMA fans aren't exactly the most likeable fans out there, and after reading the comments I read on Twitter and MMA news sights I'd be just as upset as he is.
I'd be wanting Rumble to win. The only thing I don't like about Rumble is his unprofessional approach to cutting weight and the resulting attitude towards the people that call him out on it. I just don't like Bisping inside or outside the cage. Time and time again he shows why I don't care for him. I loved it when he ate shit after winning air hockey on TUF

I was thiiiiiiiis close to including him but I thought he'd get all the votes
can never root for Spitsbing unless I have money on him
Rumble would miss weight. Bisping will talk trash. Rumble will KO Bisping Bisping will spit in Rumble's corner Bisping will then win by Split Decision after getting KO'd
Jokes... I think.....
i would have rooted for Bisping if he fought AJ right after the Rivera fight and would still today
