One more thing, apologies for any typos etc, this took a while to do.

Fighter of the Year - Jon Jones (clearly but he does have Lyoto to go)

Breakthrough Fighter of the Year - Benson Henderson(fail to see how he wasn't shortlisted...he wins it if he beats Guida IMO, otherwise I'll go with Cormier)

Female Fighter of the Year - lol at women's MMA.

International Fighter of the Year - Um? Does this mean European fighter of the Year? Anderson Silva....otherwise Alistair Overeem by a mile. Even an uninspired decision win over Werdum is well above anything anyone else on that list has done this year.

Fight of the Year - Edgar-Maynard 1...one of the first , one of the best.

KO of the Year - Kongo KO Barry.....extra points for the incredible drama.

Submission of the Year - All are pretty ho hum. I'll go with Jung.

Comeback of the Year - Kongo

Coach of the Year - Yeaaah not going with Thomkins just because he died....Cesar Gracie fighters have had quite a year...outside of Shields, but even he at least FOUGHT for a title. With another CG fighter on deck.


I'm skipping the rest that are stupid.

I'm betting Cecil Peoples wins by decision 29-28 for best judge.
