Despite 3 wins in title fights last year, surely 2 questionable decisions and a beatdown do not a 'Fighter of the year' make?

I think Hendricks without a doubt earned it this year. The guy came from practically no where to knocking out top contenders in less than a round.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Are you guys related to Frankie? That first fight wasn't debatable at all.

I like Bendo so Im cool with it. Plus does it really matter who wins it? Its just a little plaque and a bonus and some exposure.

would guess its one of those things where they count how fighters behave outside of the cage as much as they do how well they fight inside of it.

Bendo must have done the most press conferences and public appearances, etc. He didnt DUI and crash his bentley like JBJ & didn't do anything that might tarnish the UFC and MMA's image.

Silva living in brazil probably did the least number of public appearances, etc.

its like a worker of the month thing?

I guess he paid them off just like he paid the judges when he fought THE REAL UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION AND THE NEXT UFC FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD, FRANKIE "THE ANSWER!" EDGAR!

No way Bendo deserved to win this. A garbage decision just like his last fight with Frankie. Hopefully he gets mauled in his next fight.

Matt Brown being snubbed big time. 4-0 in 2012 with 3 (T)KO wins, underdog in atleast half of those.

Haha, you always do this pre fight these days. Part of Chael's persona has been ingrained into you!
