    Edgar is hard to dislike and seems to get a good response almost anywhere he goes.

    Some people are turned off by his style.

    I'd say Condit or Lawler. Who doesn't like them?

    Big Nog.

    You might not love him, but nobody actively dislikes the guy.

    Lots of people dislike him. Because of his whining/excuse making and his anti gay comments.

    Easily McGregor. Maybe Fedor if he signs.

    More people hate McGregor than like him but nice try. I'm pretty sure most of his fan base is just Irish people anyway.

    Ronda Rousey.

    If you go by net number of fans = fans - haters, then Ronda Rousey has the greatest net number of fans in the UFC.

    Frankie Edgar doesn't have many detractors.

    All beloved stars are polarizing and your belief that most of his fans are Irish confirms your lack of knowledge. Conor threads, both positive and negative dominate all MMA forums, not just irish ones.

    Condit's my #1 favourite, but he gets a lot of shit on here.
