solid thread, its fun to generalize these kinds of things - hilarious sometimes

ive noticed that generally, people who focus on emotion over logic end up looking like fools and hypcorites pretty often - they can be well liked as good salesmen, but no one respects what they say

I think guys who say fedor wasn't good wasn't watching mma when fedor was in his prime. Same for the others as well.

I think a lot of it is haters becoming more vocal when there predictions from years and years past finally come true.

But definitely to a degree, fans turn. Especially in the fight game. If being a hardcore boxing fan has taught me anything, fight fans are the ficklest of fickle fans.

Par for the course here on sherdog, conversely if you win by KO or sub you're the next coming

Reminds me of Superman falling to Doomsday, Batman getting broken by Bane and Wolverine getting his adamantium pulled out of his body by Magneto. Same people cheering your coronation will be cheering your fall using the corny comic book analogies.

Fedor, GSP, and Anderson looked "unhuman" when they dominated so most people need to see them fail so they can either say " he was never really that good" or " he was a great warrior but his time has passed." Lots of people hated Chuck Liddell and Matt Hughes when they dominated but when they started losing and decided to retire a lot of that hate is no longer there. They are "human" once again just like the rest of us.

Anderson and GSP aren't title holders anymore. If they both return to the octagon one day,they'll be cheered for the most part even by people they don't like them. There's nothing there to hate anymore.
