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.

Bisping and Tito. 1 is gone, I'll be just as excited when the other goes.

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.
