I think Jones is awkward and acts out of his true charachter. Still he's far from the most uncharismatic one out there.

Easily Cain. Dude doesn't appear to have a personality. Doesn't make him a bad person.

He is probably the most charismatic/non boring champion out of the new grouping when you look at his interviews possibly outside of Rhonda. If you watch him with interviewers he smiles, flirts with female reporters and jokes and is pretty personable.

Cain would be the answer, he really has no personality at all and is almost like a stone, which isnt bad but he is a quiet guy and smiles very little.
Yes, this is very true. Sometimes Jones is boring but other times he showcases a great personality.

Of the current champs, I'd say Pettis is the most charismatic (or GSP if he's still included). Aldo and Barao are probably pretty charismatic, too, but it's hard to tell since I haven't seen many interviews of them due to the language barrier.

Equating popularity to charisma is just silly.

Barao is not as popular as he should be b/c he's from a country that doesn't speak English and he fights at 135 (many MMA fans are only into watching the big boys for some dumb reason).

Actually think Aldo and Barao have a lot of personality, however they don't speak English so most people can't see much of it.

Actually they get huge bonus for being charismatic, they get more views therefore more money. Unless you go on a very big winning streak and manage to sell to your nation like Gsp did.
