    Name some fights or potential matchups where you dislike both fighters but would end up or ended up rooting for one over the other when they fight.


    ex Jon Jones vs Weidman. I've been wanting both to lose for a while, but would totally root for Weidman if they fought.

    This is why we should not allow Orange Belts to start threads. Those guys are weak.

    Jake Shields v. Paul Harris - I ended up really pulling for Jake

    Frankie Edgar v. Benson Henderson - Benson

    Gus vs Cormier is an upcoming one. Really don't wanna root for either but I guess I'll have to come fight night.

    Overeem vs Mir
    I ended up rooting for Mir, he was on a losing streak and was getting rocked with smaller punches. I kinda felt bad for him so I was rooting for him.

    Rampage vs Jon Jones, I ended up cheering for Rampage.

    Rampage vs Tito, never happened, but I was probably going to cheer for Tito.

    BJ Penn vs Edgar, I ended up cheering for Edgar.

    Rousey vs Tate, I ended up cheering for Tate and eventually came to cheer for Tate in general.

    Rousey vs Bethe, I guess I was cheering for Rousey.

    Anderson vs Nick Diaz, I suppose I was hoping for a great KO win for Anderson.

    Nick Diaz vs BJ Penn, I was cheering for Penn.

    What kind of crazy person doesn't like BJ Penn? And if you don't like Frankie Edgar, you must be a terrible person. Holy shit the fuck is the world coming too...
