Everyone has that one fighter in their mind that they hate. Here are mine in their respectful divisions.

Heavyweight : Tim Sylvia

Light Heavyweight : Tito Ortiz

Middleweight : Chael Sonnen or Jorge Rivera

Welterweight : Dan Hardy, Matt Serra or Paul Daley

Lightweight : Clay Guida

Cant really hate on Feather and Bantamweights...



Most Liked Fighters

Heavyweight : Frank Mir, Carwin, JDS, and Cro Cop

Light Heavyweight : Shogun, Machida, Rampage, Jon Jones, and Rich Franklin

Middleweight : Anderson Silva, and Michael Bisping

Welterweight : GSP, BJ Penn, and Matt Hughes

Lightweight : Anthony Pettis, Kenny Florian, G-Sot, Joe Lauzon, and Melvin Guillard

For the lower classes, I really only like 3.

Torres, Faber, and Aldo.

In General my most liked fighter is Eddie Alvarez and my least liked is Ortiz or Paulo Filho.

By Division

Least Liked Fighters

Heavyweight : I'll probably have to agree with you on Sylvia. No one else comes to mind.

Light Heavyweight : Tito Ortiz

Middleweight : Paulo Filho

Welterweight : Koscheck but this division seems to alternate for me.

Lightweight : How do you dislike Guida? lol. Um, gotta go with Lentz.

Featherweight: Jason Reinhardt for obvious reasons

Bantamweight: I honestly can't think of one that I dislike.



Most Liked Fighters

Heavyweight : I tend to favour the lighter fighters but, Fedor and Velasquez(I like how he combines his wrestling and his stand up so flawlessly.

Light Heavyweight : Shogun and Rampage

Middleweight : Belcher and Maia (love them both pretty much equally)

Welterweight : Lytle

Lightweight : Alvarez and Edgar

Featherweight: Sandro

Bantamweight: I'm really liking Faber at 135 (He looks to be at his right weight class) and I'm growing to like Mighty Mouse as well. His wrestling looked really crisp against Yamamoto.

A couple things...

1 - We normally don't allow threads like this to remain open for very long as they typically lead to someone going overboard with their comments (fighter bashing, insults, etc.). I'm going to leave it open for the time being but won't hesitate to shut it down if it gets out of control.

2 - How can you dislike Clay Guida? That's like hating on cheese.

3 - Here's my list...

------------------

WW: (tie) Diego Sanchez, Nick Diaz, Karo Parisyan (Sanchez gets on my nerves. I won't say what I really feel about Diaz. Parisylan lost all my respect when he played the "do you know who I am?" card on TUF.)
LW: Frankie Edgar (yawn), Donald Cerrone (went from being one of my favorites to one of my most disliked fighters after acting like such a child in his fued with Varner)
FW: Leonard Garcia (I pull my hair out when watching his fights.)
BW: None
P4P (most hated overall): Anderson Silva

MOST LIKED

They're in two different places in their respective careers right now. Wandy is a huge name that will only be in big time fights and Leban just got knocked out by a guy he should have destroyed that wasn't a name by any means. Leban's back to low to mid level fighters and Wandy is going to be fighting the best until he retires.

I'm with you on hating Lentz, but why Edgar?

I dunno, just something about him, I just feel he beat an umotivated BJ Penn got lucky against Maynard. I just haven't had a true reason to give him my respect.

I really don't know why or what it is but I just really would prefer Maynard to have the belt
