I did not answer the poll b/c I did want Anderson to win (I would not have minded Chael winning either, b/c he is also entertaining). I am answering the question b/c of your statement of "it being easy to be a fan of a dominant winner." I am not saying that this is not true, but I also enjoy watching greatness. Whether it be MJ, Kobe, even Peyton Manning (and I am a chiefs fan) some people enjoy watching great athletes. I guess some of that has to do with them being dominant winners, but some of it is just seeing greatness. Sure I have my guys I cheer for that aren't great, like Chad Griggs, but I also enjoy watching the greats like Fedor, AS, Jones, and GSP.
So I am not disagreeing with your statement, but just commenting on it sounding like you think (IMO) that it is a negative thing to want to see the dominant champions compete.
