I see all these people saying that Jones is hated more than other dominant champs ever were and, in most instances, attributing this to the fact that he's black. But I don't think he's hated more than other dominant champs were: GSP, Anderson, Fedor ... they all had many, many haters. Dominant champs will always get a large amount of hate. I think the difference is this: Jones has far fewer actual fans. Unlike GSP, Anderson, and Fedor, he doesn't have legions of fans to counteract the many haters. He has his share of nuthuggers, but nothing like other dominant champs had. Thus, the true difference is that Jones is not more hated, but merely less loved by the fans. And that, I think, is a function of his dirty fighting style and off-putting personality.
