    If MVP ever comes to the UFC how quickly do you think it will be before the hate for him reaches Jones levels? Do you think it would at least be a week or a couple of days?

    MVP doesn't drive like an elderly Asian lady

    as long as he avoids hitting pregnant ladies, coke, peds, DUI's, hypocrisy, etc. He will only receive 70% hate.

    He will eventually be called a true LHW who cuts to fight smaller fighters, like Anderson before him who also started his career at WW.

    Last I checked, MVP isn't a serial f*ck up & cheater like Jones, so no.

    Depends on whether he pokes people's eyes , does steroids and commit hit-and-runs or not.

    MVP seems pretty popular at the moment. He's a bit untested, but Cyborg is a veteran and MVP literally ended his career.

    I don't think he'd get Jones-level hate, but *if* he came to the UFC and dominates like he's done in Bellator, he'll get Anderson-level hate (i.e. butthurt fanboys of fighters he beats hating on him and then quickly turning around and hating on his opponents in a ridiculously stupid attempt to claim he's worthless).

    It would be fun to watch regardless. I'd say he makes the top 15 for sure, but with so many wrestlers, it's hard to know how well he'd do in the top 10...though if Wonderboy is any indication, he could do really fucking well.

    He promotes himself as being arrogant and a bit of dick. Jones tried to hide it behind a good christian kid facade and that is why everyone hated him. Hell before the hit and run and PED violation people were starting to like him because he was being a dick publicly for once.

    No, people pretend to hate Jones for his outside the cage behaviour but in reality people hate him because of his dominance, MVP isn't good enough to become champion in the UFC and definitely not good enough to go on a Jon Jones type streak.

    He's a showboat but he doesn't seem like a disingenuous sociopath... as far as I know. So there'll be hate as there always is for dominant fighters. But I don't think it has to be Jones levels of hate.

    if he tones down the arrogance and starts fighting legit competition and stops being a pokemon autist I'd say he'd be pretty popular.
