    The guy has almost no haters and those who derided his boring fitch style have 180-ed on him after he changed his style.

    Y'all love some dong action?

    Robbie for sure.

    DHK makes me laugh with his comments. It's hard not to like him.

    I guess so. So many trust the 'Dong' nowadays. And real talk, the 'Dong' jokes seem more endearing and funny than the Conor is GOAT joke.

    He's up there actually. Hard to argue with the case folks are making for Lawler though. I'm not sure Lawler has many haters.

    Lawler is probably on the top. The thing with dong is that he has yet to enter the top. That is when the hating begins.

    His talk of not being able to get girls and dying alone really makes me feel like we share a bond

    I don't hate him, but I liked trash-talking Dong more than humble Dong.

    His smack talk was extremely amusing and effective. Instead of just spewing out insults, he was an adept of showing contempt about his opponents. He really got under the skin of Siyar, and it was hilarious.

    Robbie is great to watch, but I can't seem to truly like him. It's hard to explain, he's never done anything questionable in the octagon, but for some reason I don't think he'd be someone I'd like to share a beer with.

    Then again, I could be wrong with this judgment, exactly how I was wrong many times before in real life.

    We haven't seen him in a while but The Korean Zombie is pretty universally loved as well.

    His interviews are classic. Can't help but respect his honesty. I think Lawler is probably the most loved right now, though. I'd say Brown is up there too but he now that he's close to a title shot he actually has a lot people trying to discredit him.

    Just think, once upon a time Wanderlei Silva would have likely been the answer to this question. Sad how things change.
