End of the year awards

Ok they have one in the ufc section and sites have been making them but now i want to see what the fans think.

Fighter of the year

Eddie Alvarez, I dont know how he has not been mentioned think about it, he came from not being ranked beating two top ten contenders in both foty candidates and is now facing aoki. If he wins new years eve he should definitely get fight of the year

Fight of the year
Probably Alvarez vs Hansen incredible fight that had all facets of mma, striking, takedowns and submissions.

Knockout of the year
Rashad Evans. The overhand right stunned critics and it looked as if Chuck had broken his neck

Submission of the Year
Mclovin armbar. A very nice armbar and if you have not seen it look it up now!

Card of the year
I am going to have to pick either 92 or the Dynamite card even though neither has happened yet I think one of those will be the best card of the year.

Most important moment of the year
The demise of elite xc and while it was bad for the fighters and for the fans i guess it was a good thing.

Breakthrough fighter of the year
Either alvarez or alves

Worst fighter of the year
Idk for this one maybe Starnes, or Irving

Best team of the year
BlackHouse I mean lyoto continued his undefeated streak Nog got the belt and is going to own mir and Silva continued his terror on the mw division.

Upset of the Year
Mike Brown vs Urijah Faber
It doesnt get talked a lot about but Urijah was pretty much unstoppable but then he got knocked out and lost his title

Make your picks and this for all of mma not just ufc

not only that but how he was so cocky and he got absolutely destroyed then tested positive. That sounds pretty bad to me

Damn Br those picks look pretty good to me, only ones that could really be changed is the sub of the year with maybe the Aokiplata or something and Fighter of the Year could also be Thiago Alves.

Its not like he tested positive for roids.

And even if he had, how does that bring his talent into question?

I unno I like Br's theory here, being the worst fighter of the year could be more than what happened inside the ring. That being said I think Kalib Starnes is the hands down winner for Worst Fighter of the Year.

That performance from Starnes caused him to not only get dropped from the UFC, but dropped from ATT, too. Dude killed his MMA career with 1 performance.
