    I don't remember Jon having barely any hate before he was champ. But having that belt puts a spotlight on you. You got a lot more attention and will have to speak a lot more.

    Currently, I don't see much hate for DC on these boards. But holding that belt changes things. It will be interesting to see if DC takes the belt, if fans continue to love him or grow to hate him. So I ask those rooting for DC, are you really a Daniel Cormier fan or are you just rooting against Jones?

    Personally, I like both guys and will still be a fan of both after they fight. Could go either way but I think Cormier takes it.

    I think DC will win and turn heel by turning to Cain after the victory and walking over to hug him only to kick him in the balls and body slam him. This will set up a superfight with Cain and DC while Jones stays in his heel role to fight Gus (the babyface).

    Champs will always have their haters. However, I don't think DC (if he wins) will have anywhere near the number of haters that JBJ has. He fights clean and has a fairly likeable personality. Also, I do not see him making the kind of unprovoked media errors that Jones has made.

    You may be right brother. DC is the Macho Man, making Cain Hulk Hogan.

    Cormier beats Jones.

    After post-fight interview Cain comes in to congratulate his partner and friend.

    As he reaches in for the hug, DC scoops him up and slams him right on his head.

    DC takes off his AKA shirt, turns it inside out to reveal a Nova Uniao logo.

    Renan Barao, Jose Aldo, and JDS rush the cage and stomp out Cain.

    nova World order. 4 lyfe.

    I was actually firmly on the JBJ bandwagon before and when he beat Rua for the title. I think I even tweeted something about him being an inspirational character because he got the title at such a young age.

    Fast forward a few fights and the interviews leading up to them, and I started to really dislike him. There was the 'go get some fans' -incident, and from there his facade just started to fall apart.

    I felt a little betrayed to see his true colors, because I thought he was a humble dude. Now I actually root for his opponents on the regular. Doesn't mean that the same thing would happen with DC though, because he's a different personality.

    I didn't start hating Weidman, Dillashaw, Cain, Werdum, JDS, Hendricks or any other dudes after they became the champ, so it's not a rule, at least for me. It does put you in the spotlight, and if you're a dick, it will show.

  11. Some people hate fighters as nice and polite as GSP, Fedor, Shogun, Lyoto, and Saku. If these guys can get hate, dc will too unfortunately. I think he's a good dude tho.

    Well, they didn't turn on him when he won Dancing With The Stars, so I don't see why they'd abandon him once he has the strap.

    Doesnt matter what a champ does, they'll have outright haters.

    Can't remember Randy and Chuck getting quite this much hate in the old days, but lately, people spend more time looking for something to hate about a champ then looking into the fights themselves.

    Yes they are morons, but its sherdog, they are not going away, just get used to it...and laugh a little at their expense.

    Nah man. If DC wins every day at 6 am there will be a new prayer thread on Sherdog thanking DC for not being Jones.

    It completely depends on how he conducts himself after getting the belt. Champions do find themselves under a microscope. GSP has given a blueprint for how to conduct yourself as a champion.

    Jones has done the exact opposite.
