    Since everybody forgot history, I decided to go back in time from 2006-2016 and see who are the most popular/most hated/most loved fighters thru those years......and here are the results...

    This list is unbias and 100% based on fact according to what happened at the time....I know people will deny my findings because it doesn't fit the Agenda but this is the truth


    This list only focuses on UFC...Why? Because most mainstream fans were only UFC fans, so it doesn't focus on PRIDE or any other MMA org.


    **Most popular will reflect who was the posterbody/selling the most PPVs at the time...Most hated/Loved would apply to most hated/Loved fighters who are actually popular with mainstream audience(unknowns don't matter, example Korean Zombie is universally loved but in the grand scheme of things he ain't popular, Tim Kenney is hated but in the grand scheme of things nobody knows who in the hell he is in the Mainstream).

    Key Word...Mainstream Audience opinions, this list is based on it....Not Hardcore Audience opinions


    2006 (Three way tie for most popular, Tito was probably most popular tho)

    Most Popular

    Ken Shamrock

    ...Again I know people are gonna argue this but Anderson had just humilated Maia, his cockyness was too much for MMA fans...Big Reason why Sonnen became popular was because people hated Silva

    As for Rashad, he was the hated one in the biggest Rivalry match of the year, Rampage vs Evans...People were cheering for Rampage and hated Rashad.

    As for Kosheck...Dude was hated because of the whole GSP/Kos TuF.

    Rampage is constantly near the top and was in a an accident that resulted in a dead fetus, high speed chase with police and whines like a bitch about everything....... Fail.

    Screw through the years. The answer to both most loved and most hated the last decade is the same.

    GSP. And that says it all... the GOAT.

    It was much better...I had pictures for everybody...but there is only 20 pics limit.

    Sadly ignorance ignores facts...but it was still fun looking back at time.

    TS needs to learn how to communicate online in a way which doesn't make it seem like he's never used a computer in his life.

    Dude may even have a point, but nobody will ever know.

    You couldn't have posted this in the other 78 threads made by "ethnic" posters complaining that white fans don't cheer for their particular favorites?

    Honest question, OP? Why do you care so much about what white people do or do not enjoy? Why is it your business? I don't get rustled that most black guys don't enjoy rock music. I couldn't care less. In fact, the first time it's even occurred to me was when I just typed this sentence. If black guys prefer to listen to hip hop instead of rock, that's up to them.

    With MMA, If Latinos all cheer for Cain, good for them (even though he's about as "Mexican" as Tom Hanks). I truly don't care. If Canadians adore GSP, that's great too. Asians can root for Gomi all day and all night and I will never care.

    I don't get on NBA message boards and complain that black folks aren't supporting hockey like they should. How many black guys have Wayne Gretzky posters in their rooms? I don't go to rap forums and call all the black posters wacists for not listening to The Hold Steady and Wilco.

    And how is this affecting your life? The black fighters you like (because you personally identify with them and root them on based on tribalism) aren't as likely to be popular with other races. OK. So what? I truly don't get the obsession.

    Kevin Randleman is colored and is respected by most knowledgeable MMA fans, as well as Quinton Jackson.

    They seriously need to give it a rest. 99.9% of the board is concerned with fights and fighters, not race. These few idiots are turning the discussion toxic with the constant baiting.

    I care because people deny the facts...Sorry but Im pro facts and the fact is that their is clear bias in favor for whites and against blacks.

    Now if you want to say that you don't care...Thats fine but lets admit the truth.

    It's not effecting my life...It's effecting black fighters lives because they have to fight thru racism since the MMA fanbase won't root for them...thus they make less money since they sell less PPVs in general.
