Who would be the better REPRESENTATIVE as a champion?

Brawl theatrics aside, which individual would make for the better representative of the UFC champion?

My personal thought is DC, due to him appearing more personable, and fan friendly. Plus, he seems to be a very CARING individual, teaching youth wrestling, helping out a fan who couldn't get a ticket to his upcoming fight, etc...

I will be the first to admit, I don't know the ins and outs of JBJ in terms of if he does these types of things, but I AM aware of what DC does outside of the cage, so at this stage I feel he would be the better representative of the sport.

So I would like to hear other sherdoggers opinions on this:

Who do you think would make for the better face of the UFC, and why?

The thing is DC would be a new champ and people generally embrace new champs. With time that kinda changes. Champs are under a brighter microscope and with all the attention on them are scrutinized much more heavily. With time, if DC became champ he may attract more and more haters as well.

Very true...Even in recent times, he has picked up quite a few haters, merely as a potential challenger for the title.

Jones was hated even as a new champ, though.. I remember people were calling him disrespectful and fake before the Shogun fight. The after the Shogun fight, naturally he only got more hate.

I think Mike Rowe would make a better REPRESENTATIVE as a champion. Guy's all class.

I remember that. The negativity REALLY seemed to ramp up after Shogun. Likely due to Rua's fans being salty at Bones' destruction of him.
