Andy Wang.

He doesn't even need to listen to anybody, he's as deaf as Matt Hamill (no offense) when it comes to listening.

Why is he fighter of the year? Because he comes in with a set gameplan. He knows what he is going to do before anyone opens their mouth. I have a lot of respect for someone who can get their ass beat, and cry about it.

True but this is fighter of the year so I based my vote solely on the fighters' performances in 2007. Anderson's first fight against Franklin & his fight against Leben were both in 2006.

As for Rampage's fight against Eastman... he said he wanted warmup fights so the fans would get to know him, not because he was rusty. He wanted to have more credibility to the general public (even though he wouldn't say it like that because the word "credibility" has too many syllables in it). Plus, by fighting Eastman he got to avenge his first loss. I still think beating the UFC & Pride LHW Champs is a bigger accomplishment then beating Marquardt, Lutter, and beating Franklin for the second time.

Thanks to NikosCC for the sick sig!

I went with Jackson, Anderson isnt far behind and it could be anyones race. If either of them had fought once more this year, then they would definately receive the Fighter of The Year.

2 great champions and I'm glad we have em.

I like this idea, they should definetly give an award of some sort for fighter of the year.

I must say it is very close between Rampage and Anderson, however I had to go wit Rampage. I believe Rampage has had the tougher fights (its close though!)

Huerta has to have been the most active UFC fighter this year, but due to who he has beat I cant give him the fighter of the year. If he beats Guida then I shall be real impressed.
