A little bit of hype got started this past week over the UFC 146 lineup. (Did you know it's ALL HEAVYWEIGHTS?!?!!) As you know, then, Junior dos Santos is fighting Alistair Overeem. And all the headlines are along the lines of "Nice Guy Dos Santos Doesn't Mind Being the Nice Guy," or "It's Strange that Junior dos Santos is so Nice, Since He Breaks Everyone's Faces," and things to that effect.
When did being the good guy become so strange? I got to thinking, and I believe it all traces back to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. In fact, I think most of our problems, as a people, can trace back to "Stone Cold." Do I need to draw you a map? I certainly hope not.
In the meantime, here are the 20 nicest nice guys in MMA today. This covers active fighters, so save the Randy Couture queries.
And while you're at it, save your awesome stories about how you hung out with so-and-so and he's really not as nice as he seems on TV; this list deals with public personas only.
