Oh, the fickleness of the MMA fight fan.
Last month, Alexander Gustafsson won the plurality of the vote in our massively (un)scientific poll seeking the answer to this question: Which fighter was most deserving of a title shot against Jon Jones at UFC 152?
Well, three weeks later, when the question became this -- Who do you want to see Jon Jones fight next? -- the answer was not Gustafsson.
Here are the poll results from that question.
44% - Dan Henderson
28% -- Chael Sonnen
19% -- Lyoto Machida
9% -- Alexander Gustafsson
Yes, there are tons of ways to explain using basic statistics and general polling tools, but Internet polls weren't meant to be scientific. They're intended to capture general sentiments at a particular time from a particular audience.
