Something a fighter did on TV or to you personally to make you less of a fan. no fighter bashing. I'll start. Jake Shields- I was an avid fan but shrugged me off when I just wanted to say I was a fan at UFC 148(Not at expo, I'm not into standing at lines in expos). Rampage- all his recent behavior.

Guida's burping. I never found it "cool" or whatever. Also, this picture:

It had the complete opposite effect on me. Bisping definitely talked himself into that last love tap.

For me, Hendricks latest comments have rapidly decreased my support for him. I agree with him feeling bitter over not getting a title shot, but saying stuff like "Ellenberger is more dangerous than GSP" is going a little beyond what is necessary.

Bisping throwing the illegal knee on Rivera. Rivera not easily taking a dq win like he could and continuing even though that fucked him up. Then Bisping still talking shit and spitting on his corner. I will never ever be a fan of Bisping. Phone Post

Bisping bad mouthing Matt Hamill after their fight especially when Bisping was gifted that win. That one took me a long time to get past to be honest.

I actually have become a bit more of a fan in regards to Bisping these days.

Condit, Boestch, and Guida for constantly disengaging during an important fight with a tough opppnent, just because they 'really wanted to win'.

Jones for the whole UFC cancellation nonsense. Weidmann, and Hendricks moaning about other fighters getting title shots.

Rory Macdonald for showboating in the Penn fight, then playing dumb and claiming it was a legit technique, not showboating.

Julian Lane for screaming/whimpering 'let me bang bro' on TUF, whilst smashing his head into walls, like a greiving mother who lost her child. Phone Post

Its cool bro, I agree with the intended statement, fighters who milk illegal strikes rub me the wrong way.

An antithesis to this is when Rivera got smashed with that illegal knee from Bisping, then chose to continue fighting and took his beating like a warrior. Thats how it is done. Phone Post

Im not sure, still a Daley fan, but what he did was retardes. Tbh the thing which turns me off fighters, is deliberate passivity for an entire fight o not get hurt or scored on; and guys who have been in the UFC for under 5 years, getting carried away with media hype amd demanding title shots.

Bisping is a polarizing figure.

You kind of want to like him because he's got a great pace and sometimes says funny shit but he also does alot of antics in the ring that make you hate him and he also says stupid shit.

Johnny Hendricks is going back to his wrestling days where he really soaked up being a bad guy and would talk lots of shit. I liked him going into the Kos fight but recently he's just sounding like a constant complainer.

I really liked Weidman because he seemed like the everyman who has great skills but he's really reaching for the Chael Sonnen title shot approach which is getting old.

Lots of them. Hendricks completly lost me as a fan as of recently. I was a big fan of him and I wanted him to become a title holder but after all the whining he's done lately its hard for me to still like him.

A fighter thats done something recently thats MADE me a fan was Rory MacDonald. I hated him coming into the BJ fight because I wanted BJ to win so bad, but while watching the fight I was really impressed with his skills, and he was completly respectful to BJ after the fight.

All of these.

I was a huge fan of Gray Maynard coming out of TUF, that double TKO with Emerson really made a statement. But then there were a couple fights where it was the final round and he'd look up at the clock, and then completely disengage, just running out the clock. It was the first time I'd ever seen someone do that so unashamedly, completely changed my opinion on the guy. Still think he's a great fighter, but it's hard to root for a guy that does that.
