    You know the fighters I'm talking about. You were a fan, maybe a big fan, maybe a moderate fan. Maybe you jumped out of the chair when they won a fight. Maybe you defended them on Sherdog. But then ... you started breaking up with them. Maybe it was a long, slow break-up like when you cheered for Hendricks versus GSP, but then Hendricks launched into years of self-destructive whining that made you two grow apart until you rented a separate apartment downtown and started a covert Tinder account on your burner phone.

    Or maybe it was a sudden separation, like when Condit threw baby leg kicks against Diaz to win on points and you sent him an angry text (e.g. drunken Sherbro post) at 2 a.m. saying it was over and he had until tomorrow to come get his shit. Or maybe it was a destructive emotional breakup, like when Holly Holm kicked at the air surrounding Shevchenko for 25 minutes and you cried by yourself until you fell asleep on the recliner with a half-eaten container of Ben & Jerry's.

    Those three come to mind for me. What about you?

    (Funny stories and opinions about your history following fighters are welcomed. Just go easy on fighter bashing please.)

    Baby J. I can't even defend the guy anymore and I can't say my opinion on him or I'd get banned. What a mess.

    Latifi, Condit and Mousasi.
    I thought they were great guys then I discovered the truth. No longer a fan.

    No one really. I find it better to not root for anybody. I watch to see who the best fighter is. I'm a fan of fighting, not fighters.

    share the truth. I need to know if I have to reconsider my fandom for Condit and Latifi.
