Man no love for UFC 84 as fight card of the year?! That was by far the best one imo.

Fighter of the year is absolutely Thiago Alves.

Fight of the year is a tie for me:
Lyoto vs Tito. I know I am biased and very, very few will agree with me but I enjoyed it more than any other.
Nog vs Sylvia. So worried that big ogre would jab Nog to a decision win but when he got choked out I went bananas



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Best Card = UFC 84 what is better then a TKO by Penn to retain the belt

Best Fighter = Either Alves, Hazelett, or Maia

Alves has the best resume which includes beating a fighter that Hazelett lost too, but Dustin just came so far since then. Maybe he gets most improved.

Maia got the mention because he is awesome and was all year. He beat Quarry (someone many people thought he would have lots of problems with), Herman, and MacDonald (in one of the best fights of the year).

Best Fight = I am going with Sherk vs Griffin

Worst Fighter = Brandon Vera because he lost his only fight at HW and then bitched about the decision. He then dropped to LHW and couldn't finish a terrible fighter in Reese Andy. Then he got beat by Jardine. The two fights he had at LHW were terribly boring too.

Worst FIght = Starnes vs Quarry

Fighter of the year?
Thiago Alves
UFC Fight card of the year?
UFC 91
Fight of the year?
I really enjoyed GSP vs Serra 2 and Nog vs Sylvia
Worst fighter of the year?
Kalib Starnes (If you could call him a fighter), otherwise I pick Brandon Vera.
Worst fight of the year?
Starnes vs Quarry was saved by the fact that it was so bad it was almost...good. So worst fight at this moment would have to go to Brandon Vera vs Reese Andy. But yeah, I haven't given this much thought.

I think this thread's a little early, we have an amazing card in less than two weeks.

For now though, these are my picks:


Q: Fighter of the year?
A: Thiago Alves - what he managed to do this past year is incredible. No one else beat 3 top 10 opponents as easily as he did in 2008.


Q: UFC Fight card of the year?
UFC 84, but I think UFC 92 will take that title.

Q: Fight of the year?
A: Nogueira/Sylvia or Rampage/Griffin. These will be tough to beat although I think Wanderlei/Rampage 3 could do it.


Q: Worst fighter of the year?
A: Brandon Vera. He just looked like shit.


Q: Worst fight of the year?
A: Terry Martin vs Marvin Eastman. You wouldn't have guessed it had you seen their weigh-in staredown.


EDIT: I just went through and read everyone's posts and noticed how many votes there were for Vera as "worst fighter", glad you guys are recognizing it too.

Yeah...Aaron reminded me of that Swick fight that almost put me to sleep too. Those first fights after a new cut have terrible written all over them.

Glad others see it with Vera too. + rep for you two.

Fighter of the year?
Brock Lesnar - completely unproven fighter has risen through the ranks to become the UFC HW champion is absolutely phenominal

Thiago - 3-0 against top 10 opponents this year
Kenny Florian - Had a really really phenominal year
also the winner of Forrest v Rashad will have a spot there

UFC Fight card of the year?
UFC 84 - had the names, the fights and 5 new comers made there presence felt (Palhares, Zenko, Carwin, Dong Hyun Kim and Reijic) and my boy Machida was on the card

then would be UFC 91, didnt have all the great names but had every single fight on PPV and all the fights on the main card didnt get past the 2nd, pretty awesome stuff (contrare to what the WWE thinks)


Fight of the year?
Nog v Sylvia

Worst fighter of the year?
Vera maybe, but i always thought he was mad overhyped

Worst fight of the year?
I wasn't very impressed with Cote v Almeida, but im sure there are worse
