    I used to like ronda the first time i saw her then the miesha fight happened and i see ronda true color. She reminds me of this fat lady i used to work with who would always talk shit at work trying to act tough.

    I used to dislike Ronda, but grew to like her. Same thing for Chael in the past.

    McGregor.

    I couldn't do WC's below LW (155). Connor changed that for me.

    Matt Mitrione. Didn't like him on TUF but I really admire the guy now.

    Frankie Edgar. I rooted for him as a contender and picked him to beat BJ then I hated him as champ. He was a clog in the LW division for a while there. So glad Bendo beat him twice

    Used to hate W. Silva but had mad respect for him after I heard him encourage a young grappler at a camp. True gentleman and class act.

    Used to hate, but now has my respect...
    Current undisputed P4P #1 (Still not a fan though)

    Conor McGregor:
    Used to hate (mostly because of fans)... But now has my respect...
    Dude gives zero fucks and has been walking the walk (Still not a fan though).

    Ronda Rousey:
    Used to hate, because she is a duck... But now even less respect, hate even more :D

    I was a little salty at Cormier for beating Bigfoot and Barnett who I loved, then I saw him some more and he became one of my top 5 favorite fighters.

    I usually warm to anyone who shows heart and avoids excuses. Recent examples are Bisping and Rory Mac.

    I use to dislike Edgar but the man puts in work and has a huge heart.

    I use to look up to GSP until I felt he fought way too safe. I still like GSP as a person and he deserves all the accolades but I don't find myself wanting to re-watch his matches.

    I am the biggest Anderson Silva nuthugger but as of late, I just want him to retire. I have a feeling that if he doesn't retire, he will be in the Liddell territory soon and that makes me sad.

    Anderson Silva

    First I liked him because his finishes were so awesome.
    Then he started to annoy me because he became to dominant.
    Then I disliked him even more because he became more and more cocky.
    And now I like him again since a lot of people are already counting him out.

    Also,im not a fan of Tito,but he gained my respect. He is a tough guy even though he acts like a bitch alot outside of the cage,he is a warrior inside of it.

    Off the top of my head would be Silva. Was a fan in Chute Box & Pride days, even though I rooted against him when he fought Newton(Canada 4TW) through to Cage Rage days. Cheered him on and knew what he had when he came to the UFC and loved it when he mauled Leben in his debut but after taking the title and defending it I grew frustrated with him, especially because the division felt off, mainly due to his dominance, then his in-ring cockiness and arrogance killed it for me.

    Jones was sorta similar, I really liked him and thought, "wow, this guy's gonna be something, in time he'll def. be champ". I'm figuring it was a lot sooner than I expected, because after he beat one of my "top 3 fav's" in Shogun I started to dislike him, then his attitude was getting to me and then the shit started to hit the fan.


    Never liked Bisping from the start but over time he grew on me, and I'm only talking as of late, probably around the time he fought Belcher is when I finally started to dig him.
