10 UFC fighters who fans love to hate
Here are ten of today's UFC fighters who have been in the receiving end of hatred from fans.
From former and current world champions to fast-rising up-and-comers, here are ten of the UFC fighters that fans simply love to hate on.
#10 Demian Maia
In this day and age of MMA where the sport has immensely evolved, one may expect for fans to be more knowledgeable about each and every facet involved. However, there are still some fans who are seemingly stuck in the UFC's "Just Bleed" era and are only after the stand-and-bang action.
Those are the same fans who continue to hate on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Demian Maia. Most of their gripes are about him being too "one-dimensional" since he uses his grappling as his primary weapon in most of his fights.
In Maia's defense, he has also evolved as an overall fighter. It was evident when he was able to light up top-ranked welterweight Colby Covington during their striking exchange when they fought in Sao Paulo, Brazil last October, making any of these arguments against him practically invalid.
