fighter i would find it hard to go against forrest to be honest,coming from the ultimate fighter to reaching the pinnacle in what many consider the toughest most competitve weight class.He is a hard worker and has earned everything.

Also a shout to Thiago Alves and Machida.

best fight,i really enjoyed GSP/Fitch,also liked nog and sylvia.

worst fight,definately Nate Quarry vs Kalib Starnes,dunno what happened to starnes that night.

worst fighter,i was dissappointed with James Irvin,getting the beat down from Silva,then failing the drugs test,had high hopes for him aswell.

and finally best card,i enjoyed Serra/St Pierre 2 in Montreal,the crowd were electric,and there were some good fights,i was pleased to see Charles McCarthy get beat down

alves is fighter of the year....he's the only guy to beat 3 top 10 opponents, 2 via stoppage....gsp beat 1 and anderson silva beat 1...i don't see how this can be argued...not to mention w/ one of the best ko's of the year that will be on HL reels to come for years



ufc 91 was the best fight card of the year...not on paper, but it delivered w/ every fight being exciting

fight of the year was ....prob gsp vs. fitch

worst fighter? not sure....probably terry martin

worst fight? kalib starnes vs. nate quarry by far

Fighter of the year?

thiago alves - he beat 3 top 10 contenders (parisyan, hughes and koshchek)this year in dominating fashion. nobody else in the ufc this year has fought better competition. anderson silva was close, but apart from hendo his opponents wernt all that special.

UFC Fight card of the year?

has to be ufc 92, that card looks awesome.

Fight of the year?

forrest griffin vs rampage jackson - this wasnt the best by any means, but it certainly was the biggest.

Worst fighter of the year?

kalib starnes.

Worst fight of the year?

jardine vs vera - both of these guys are meant to be top level fighters, but they looked dreadful in this fight.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!

Kalib Starnes cannot be worst fighter of the year, he can be best runner but since he failed to mount anything resembling a fight he doesnt qualify.

Fighter of the year?

Forrest Griffin, from TUF to champ, you gotta give it to him. I can't think of anyone who deserves it as much as him.

UFC Fight card of the year?

Possibly UFC 92, but right now fight for the troops. Insanely brutal event that stays in your mind for a while. Two broken limbs.. Yoshida near death (damn near).

Fight of the year?

Rashad vs. Chuck. Everyone was anxious to see Chuck knock people out again, they were practically lactating. But for Rashad to, in the blink of an eye, damn near kill Chuck was a beauty for me personally. First time Chuck has ever been out out.. and he stayed down for a minute too.

Worst fighter of the year?

Razak Al Hassan for not tapping. Who can disagree with me?

Worst fight of the year?

Razak Al Hassan for not tapping, probably scaring kids for that terrible breakage (dislocation whatever)

Fighter of the year?

GSP - proved he is serious and will not relinquish his belt to anyone

UFC Fight card of the year?

So far, UFC 91 has been the best, but I do like seeing submissions.

Fight of the year?

GSP vs Fitch - You really have to respect Fitch after this fight.

Worst fighter of the year?

Starnes - no question

Worst fight of the year?

Starnes. Again.
