i disagree with best promotion, Every WEC card this year was awesome, ive never heard anyone complain about a WEC card ever.
Also How can Wand fight team be the best Gym, i only know 2-3 fighters from that gym and they are not that great either. Is it based on the quality of fighters or the actual gym itself like equipment etc. because it is a pretty awesome looking gym il give them that.
I think Sotiropoulos easily deserved international fighter award. Overeem has only had one fight this year and that was against a overrated Brett Rogers. Goes to show that the general fan knowledge of MMA is poor and most of the awards are based on who they like watch the most, not who is actually the better fighter.
Ant that the truth, I read somewhere the fans had voted on the nominees, which explains why without going into who should or should not have won, but there are certainly fighters missing who at least deserved to be nominated.
Take best submission for example, hard to remember back this far, but can you remember Paulo Thiago's submission over Mike Swick it deserved to be given a shout, as did Davis Anaconda choke over Gustafsson, more so when you look at what was nominated.
Best KO, KJ Noons vs Jorge Gurgel arguably the best KO of the year again not even nominated.
Best fight of the year, Feijao vs King Mo not been in there was sick, Diego Sanchez vs Paulo Thiago, Belcher vs Cote all better fights than any of the nominees imo.
As for Brock been a nominee for best fighter of the year and not Cain, well what else can you say.
