I think it's Overeem by some distance. He's looked really good ever since moving to HW and just KO'd possible the best kickboxer in the world today (granted Hari only had a couple of weeks to prepare) so yeah, he gets my vote.

Plus he looks like a T-Rex.

I went with Mir, that performance against Nog was just outstanding, totally unexpected.

Mir has shown improvment in skill level as opposed to size like overeem and Alves. Rashad and Kenny have both had good years but I don't think they have improved in the last year.

Overeem for sure, he's a scary prospect for the heavyweight division in 2009.

My pick as well. Knocking out the K1 HW champ really gotta account for something. Man, Overeem has gone from a somewhat good LHW to a SOLID light heavyweight. Sergei vs. Overeem 3 needs to happen. (Sergei KOing Overeem showed how bad ass Sergei is).

Kenny would be my close second, but he's improved in 2007 as well.

Mir, hmm, I wanna see him and Lesnar first. He has improved, but I really can't tell how much.

I choose Kenny Florian for obvious reasons.

I went with Mir. Although Overeem had a great year....he was always pretty good. Mir went from total garbage to killer.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.
