Has there ever been a fighter more hated on sherdog that eventually became liked than DC?

    Everytime I hear DC talk it blows my mind he used to get booed at weigh-ins and tons of hate on Sherdog. Most finally saw the light that he isn't just a great fighter but also a good guy. But it took way too long

    The anti-Cormier crowd is the Jones fans, and they've been beaten into submission lately.

    Who hated DC? When he came in as an alt in the Strikeforce HW tourney he was an immediate legend aka Black Fedor!

    Yup. Don't worry tho, he still has plenty of haters. Greatness makes basement dwellers insecure.

    Think he still gets plenty of hates from those deluded enough to consider Jon Jones the GOAT.

    Tons of people on here. Mostly mocked him for "trying too hard to be liked, while 'Jones keeps it real' "

    DC deserves being mocked for 206.2 but otherwise is a model citizen for a fighter.

    He’s a good guy but he whines too much.
    Also Jon wrecked him and he cried

    Used to be lonely here as a DC fan. Now every neckbeard is clutching his girdle. And DC's too.

    Soon I'll have to start hating on him.

    That's some serious revisionist history there. I don't ever remember anyone saying Jones was keeping it real. Maybe when people said they liked Jones better when he embraced being a bad guy.

    Jones has been hated since he beat Shogun and it's only gotten worse. DC was never hated. Maybe mocked for being corny but not hated. I personally think DC is as fake as Jones but I don't hate him.

    No one likes DC. Salty, corny, and forever second best.
    I mean seriously who throws a shoe?

    Depends on who you listen to. Plenty of people like and dislike Jones; plenty of people like and dislike DC.

    Not too many that have gone the full spectrum. Closest would be TJ as many disliked him before the Cruz fight and immediately after it with the whole TAM issue, I don't see much negative talk about him now and he is mostly praised on forums.

    I remember there being negativity about Ortega when he popped positive in the past but everyone talks him up now without mentioning it.

    Outspoken appreciation of DC tends to be in inverse proportion to the status of Jones. When Bones fucks up, DC benefits. When Bones shines, DC gets booed. It isn't fair, but DC brings it on himself by casting Bones as his bitter rival, his eternal opposite. Like binary stars revolving around each other.
