MMA End of Year Awards 

Post#1 » by Cammo101 » Mon Dec 4, 2017 9:39 pm

Normally I decide the nominees on my own and let everyone vote. But, inevitably someone comes up with one I didn't think of or that got past me for some reason, so I figured I would open this thread up for people to bring up people and performances they think should be included.

There's no rhyme or reason here. If you think someone or something should be included in one of the categories, just toss it out there. I can't promise it will be chosen, but it will be considered. Here are the categories...

Fighter of the Year
Female Fighter of the Year
Fight of the Year
Knockout of the Year
Submission of the Year
Breakthrough Fighter of the Year
Biggest Upset
Comeback Fighter of the Year
Story of the Year
Referee of the Year

I think a few categories will be pretty easy.
Comeback is definitely GSP
Story is definitely Conor vs Mayweather
KOwill probably go to this weekends uppercut from hell.

Yeah, when ever I make all time comparisons, I pretty much ignore the pre-3PT-line era. The game was so different then. It's apples and oranges. Those guys may be better or may be worse, we're never really going to know.

That's a great call. The reflex and delivery of that knee was nuts. He just sort of floated himself onto his tippee toes and then drove that knee without any leverage but his hips.

Hi love, bye love, I will miss my love.
