    I see a lot of posters wanting Jones and Cormier to lose. Though they aren't really fans of the other guy.

    Seems like two unlikable guys that posters have to make a choice on for 1 fight.

    Fights like that i don't root for anyone, except for a good fight. I don't like either guy. In fact its actually more fun and less stress when you don't care about the outcome.

    I really don't see how Cormier is an "unlikable" dude.

    He seems like a super laid back dude that likes to joke around, but I swear to God people around will tell you the opposite.

    Easier to forgive when you weren't hit by it.

    Daniel Cormier is not likeable, at least his MMA persona is not. As a analyst, I'm very fond. But it's clear he is a WWE fan. When he trash talks, it sounds like a fan pretending to be their favourite wrestler. It comes off as hokey, I want to see him loose so he doesn't trash talk anymore.

    As for Jon Jones, he's been given shit for a long time. At first it was underserved. But over time, he earned a fraction of the hostility. People resented him for besting their PRIDE heroes. Then they got upset for not risking his career on a short notice fight. Then when all the BS went down, it's just echoed an already vilified image created for him. There are plenty of beloved fighters who've done much worse than Jon has.

    So it's easy to see why people are indifferent or just want to see an individual loose.

    I don't like him, i won't pretend I'm a fan.

    But i get your point, nothing really that polarizing about him like say a Jones, Koscheck etc.
