    Im curious on what type of following the current champions have. how you would rank the current champions from the fan fav to the champ with the least amount of fans?
     
  2. I'd say Jones and Weidman have strongest fanbases on here at the moment.

    Lawler and Pettis are pretty much universally liked here

    Weidman is pretty well liked

    Off Sherdog R3 and Jones

    Are we talking about in the USA, or internationally? For instance, Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor are probably massively more famous in their home countries than they are to the rest of the world.

    Edit: I forgot Conor isn't even a champion, but still a good example of the message I was trying to convey. I imagine Gustaffson is more famous in Sweden than he is in America.

    Why did you all limit it to Sherdog fans? TS didn't mention Sherdog only fans. I'd say R3 has the biggest fanbase, followed by Cain.

    Are you trying to create another Conor McGregor thread in disguise?

    Is Cain that popular? He never fights, hard to imagine him being moreso than Jones.

    The Chris due to all the Silva haters

    I predict if anyone ever beats Jones they will become the most popular champion in UFC history
     
  15. Until you create an account on Sherdog to insult some anonymous kid who was hating on your fav fighter, you're not a real fan brah.

    Jones.

    Plenty of sherdoggers hate him but outside this little bubble there are a lot of Jones fans who buy his PPV fights and follow him on social media.
