just curious i see my self rooting for guys i never really did before, and the opposite as well some guys i am starting to root to kick some ass instead of being beaten are micheal bisping

never liked the guy, it didn't help that hamill got screwed on the fight between him, but i have turned it around, i wouldn't say i am a fan but i am getting there

other guy is diego sanchez
just something about him, i loved how kos beat him, i booed till my lungs almost collapsed at the live fight against fitch, but now i am picking him to win, was cheering him on agaist luigi.

big timmy i will never like

and now the opposite,
i used to like and enjoy matt hughes, now i really can't stand him, i don't know if it is too much of him or i fact i spent 20 bucks and read his book making him look more of a jerk.

and the other is kendall grove
i just think he is way over rated

with that the biggest surprised fighter for me is patrick cote'
i man who goes from 0-4 yet alone still be in the ufc to title contender in a year

next would be rich clementi
i bet against him twice at to live shows last year, lost money, now i am 2-0 with him this year, he has heart and seems to be a good guy

I used to like Matt Hughes, until I saw him as a coach.
I hated Leben, but love that guy now.

there is already a thread about this.

But one for me is. Bisping liked him on TUF 3 and hated Hamill on TUF 3 but then once they fought and bisping got that win when hamill should have got it. I like hamill now and dislike bisping.

Those two are the exact same for me

I used to always root for Hughes, but then i found out what kind of person he actually is and it made me lose respect for him. And im not even sure why i didnt like Chris Leben before, i hated him but i forgot why, and still kept hating him. But after his last fights couple fights he has really impressed me.

The opposite

Karo- His decisions used to be impressive. That guy had some wars against Diego and Nick. He even submitted Nick Thompson with strikes. But now his decision wins are snoozefests and then in his last fight he gets knocked out.

Ahh, yes, Karo...forgot about him. He was a good sport in his Reggie Warren video appearance (Karo Parsnipian), but everytime he opens his mouth otherwise, his arrogance makes me wince.

i used to hate matt hughes until i ercently saw a ufc all access with him and he seemed a nice guy plus im actually starting to feel sorry for him as you can see it in his eyes especially at ufc 85 even before the fight he knows his time at the top is over.
i still and allways will root against bj penn for his ego and tim sylvia for his dull fighting style.

definitely Michael Bisping... I hated him on the show but he has made me a believer of him @ 185.

I really liked Burkman on the show but he has been a very big disappointment.

I used to not be a fan of Lebens but now I think he's got a lot of pontential and always puts on an insane show.

Kenny Florian
I never liked him much but he has definately earned my respect. He isn't a favorite of mine by any means but I now give him props for backing up all the talk.

Kos
I liked him on the show and liked watching him fight but I am a Diego fan so due to the rivalry I can't like kos. Plus his only notable win is over a sick Diego and he remains ranked in the top 5.... yes I am bitter. Give it time.

I used to like Florian and now I hate him.

Randy is a big one for me too. Used to be my favourite fighter and I like him a lot less now.

Randy Couture - used to love him but with all the drama I've grown to dislike him now.

Rampage - Hated him prior to this season's TUF. Couldn't stand the guy. But after watching him as a coach on TUF, I've grown to love him. I actually think I'll be pulling for him to beat Forrest now, where before, I was praying for an upset. I still think the howling he does is a bit ridiculous, though.

I'll have to add Florian to my list of guys that I didn't really like but once he moved down to 155, I have liked most of his fights and I hope is able to strategically break down Huerta for a submission.

Koscheck is a guy that I disliked then and dislike now.

I really didn't give a shit about Huerta until the monitor elbows vs. Crane (I think it was Crane?) but now he's legit
