    What is that all about? I keep seeing this often here
    "People don't like him, because he has no personality"
    "Great fighter, but no personality"

    How about the ones considered GOATs? Do they have a personality?

    GSP - ?
    Jones - ?
    Fedor - ?
    Silva - ?
    DC - ?
    Aldo - ?
    MM - ?

    Who are some fighters with a great personality?

    That's why God gives him so many more tests than the average man. God has tests for each of them.

    Jon Jones has too much personality for his own good.

    Some fighters just have natural charisma. I would put GSP, DC and Fedor into that category.

    Other fighters such as JJ and MM don’t have that natural charisma but are still dominant enough where it’s quickly forgiven.

    Yeah at the end of the day it's about how good you are at fighting. Sean MCcorkle had personality, but no one knows who he is today because he sucked at fighting.

    It's DEFINITELY a mix of a fighter's fighting abilities and their personality/the image they give off. And it's always been that way (at least since the invention of television), and always will.

    To some degree it's def true. The #1 most important thing is your fighting abilities though. The greatest fighters of all time has like zero personality. Lawler is one of the most respected fighters of all time, has the personality of a potato lol

    Some fighters should hire managers to work the mic for them and occasionally distract referees during fights so they can cheat.
