Roufusport Academy, Head Coach
Bob Sapp at 1st he would win once in a while with the officials help.

Soon he constantly quit. Great if you are gambling man ;) Phone Post 3.0

Bisping for one. Hendo killing him was the fight that made me a fan.

& ronda has definitely grown on me, her stints on her bf's podcast humanized her.

Faber. Used to think he was a douchey surfer bro, but his willingness to fight anyone anytime and the way he brings it in every fight eventually made me a fan.

Faber for me too. Zuffa was really forcing him down The fan's throats after they bought WEC. He won me over though.

Took a long time for me to like Fedor. He always seemed to be going up against fighters that I really liked (Nog, Cro Cop, Goodridge, Hunt, Schilt, Herring, Arlovski) Phone Post 3.0

Second this. Guy got a raw deal in facing TRT cavalcade whenever he's been a win away. He's taken his lumps, and with the exception of the Kennedy fight he's rebounded admirably from just about every loss. He's a gamer.

I would throw in Gray Maynard. I hated watching him climb the ranks with that grudging style. But I gained massive respect for him after the last two Edgar fights, and after he went after a fleeing Guida in the later rounds of their fight. Phone Post 3.0

I'm shocked no one has mentioned Mendes!

Ever since his loss to Aldo and having Bang on board, he has been a juggernaut. Phone Post 3.0

Rashad Evans Pissed me off that rampage was mor or less the heal on tuf. Wanted to see rampage win bad and respected he wanted to do the movie. Like the dude heaps now though
About five years ago bj penn rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know why. He's a legend though
Used to be a massive Jon jones fan from way back. Then after Rashad incident not so much. Don't hate him but I just see him as the bad guy Phone Post 3.0

Hard Aground - 

I began to like Kimbo as a person.


I felt the same way,

 

Kos- I hated him after he put the hose on Chris and wanted him to get blasted, but he won me over eventually

Cerrone, Swanson, and Matt brown. Their attitude always seemed fake to me at back in the day and their tattoo choices but all have definitely grown on me and I definitely have great respect for all three. All are tough as nails, always come to fight, and definitely have some skills. Cant ask for anything more from fighters from any aspect Phone Post 3.0
