I have noticed more and more in modern mma that, todays fighters aren't really respected or revered like the old days. The only fighters I could recall not being well respected from the previous generation were Frank Trigg and Tim Sylvia but then again, people weren't really bad mouthing them as much. But now, it seems like todays fighters get tons of shit from the fans were as old school fighters were treated like martial arts masters. Why is that? Too much social media? Is it the lack of mastery in one area of mma that opens them for criticism?
