This. In Pride he was one of my favorite fighters. My uncle knew him from working at a gym in SoCal, so me liking him on top of that made me root hard for him. When he won that UFC belt we were super excited.
Now that I realize he's a fake money/women first jerk, I stopped caring about him.
Another one of mine was Fedor. I used to love Big Nog's style of fighting, and when the two of them met, I thought Fedor got his then undefeated record (minus the loss that should have been a No Contest) was won by beating mostly cans, and that he was a bum (based on his appearance).
Boy was I young and stupid! After that fight he became one of my favorite fighters in Pride, and Fedor remains as one of my favorite fighters forever!
