    Anyone else surprised by that? I mean I knew he wasn't that popular due to being a very dry and uncharismatic character, and the last Max fight didn't help, but I never thought he was that badly liked by crowds

    Not really. Great fighter, but not necessarily the most likable guy. I see the same thing with Ortega.

    People really seem to hate that guy with a passion.

    I usually don't get involved with the personality discussions, but Ortega seems like one of the most obvious cases of a guy faking not being asshole that I've seen in this sport in a while.

    Hes fighting a popular MEXICAN fighter from LA. Show is in Las Vegas. They are booing because they are pulling for his opponent. They dont hate him.

    well....Volkanovski is Australian, fighting in USA
    Nick Diaz is American, a bit of a legend, fighting in his home country after a 6yr absence.

    It's hardly surprising. C'mon....

    I thought Matt Hughes was a douche, even before his book came out. With Jon Jones, you know he’s a liar. I wondering who else just gives off that vibe?

    Salty Holloway fans who can’t accept max lost 8 out of 10 rounds vs Volk.
    I think Ortega might catch him with an uppercut or Knee but I’d love it if Volk dominates and triggers max stans worldwide

    And understandably so, the real aholes get shay on and hated on. Ortega just isn’t very good at keeping the humble act going.

    What does Nick have to do with anything?

    Valentina is Russian and her opponent is American and they went wild for her. Usually a champion gets at least a loud clap.

    Not a fan of his fighting style, but if it's against Ortega I'll be rooting for him to win

    Ortega is from LA and the fight is in Vegas… Pretty close

    Never trust a pretty Mexican. A fat or skinny one? Sure. A pretty one. No way.
