The World MMA Awards, operated by Fighters Only magazine, were created in 2008 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of people who make MMA such a great sport. This year's awards culminate with a black-tie, red-carpet ceremony that takes place Dec. 1 at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Broadcast plans are expected to be announced shortly.
I went with Aldo, Garcia/Jung, Franklin, Werdum, UFC, Dana, Soti, Jones, Cyborg, etc.

Finalists announced for 2010 World MMA Awards

Following a two-month-long nomination stage, finalists for the Fighters Only 2010 World MMA Awards were today officially revealed.

In the third edition of the annual awards, the UFC again dominated many of the 20 categories while the coveted "Charles 'Mask' Lewis Fighter of the Year" category has been narrowed down to finalists Anderson Silva, Brock Lesnar, Frankie Edgar, Jose Aldo and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.

MMAjunkie.com is represented in two categories. The company is a finalist for the "Best Media Coverage" award, and lead staff reporter and MMAjunkie.com Radio co-host John Morgan is a nominee for "Best MMA Journalist."

All winners are determined by a fan vote, and ballots can be cast through Nov. 26 at www.worldmmaawards.com.

The World MMA Awards, operated by Fighters Only magazine, were created in 2008 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of people who make MMA such a great sport. This year's awards culminate with a black-tie, red-carpet ceremony that takes place Dec. 1 at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Broadcast plans are expected to be announced shortly.

"The anticipation for the 2010 awards has been a little overwhelming," Fighters Only CEO Rob Hewitt stated. "I couldn't be more thrilled by the potential of this year's event. Last year's ceremony opened many people’s eyes. Seeing is believing, so more and more people want to get behind the awards.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who's supported us in making the World MMA Awards a landmark occasion in the industry's calendar and appeal to the fans to let their voices be heard."

MMAjunkie.com looks to repeat in the "Media Source of the Year" after earning the title in both the 2009 and 2008 editions of the World MMA Awards. Morgan, meanwhile, also looks to win back-to-back honor after earning the title of "MMA Journalist of the Year" in 2009, the first year the award was up for grabs.

I can't remember all fights I've seen.. but one thing is for sure,

the first minute, in the beginning of the fourth round in the Anderson/Sonnen fight, was the greatest most facinating thing I have seen so far.

I got goosebumbs on my entire body^^ I still do lol


Yea, that fight should win the poll!

Best Fighter Award should go to Shogun in my mind! Anderson is up there too.
