    BREAKTHROUGH FIGHTER OF THE YEAR

    There would have been two names that spring mind, yet neither on the list for some reason.

    Rory MacDonald and Melvin Guillard?!

    FIGHTER OF THE YEAR - Gotta be Anderson

    Defending his belt and taking the piss doing it,against two of the very top challengers in his division,gives him my vote,though Hendo winning the strikeforce belt and beating fedor makes it a closer call.

    BREAKTHROUGH FIGHTER OF THE YEAR - Demetrious Johnson

    I don't think there is a fighter on that list that comes close to Johnson,2 fights in the UFC against Kid and Torres,wins them both and lands a Title shot.
    I'd like to of seen Rory McDonald on that list

    FIGHT OF THE YEAR - Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard at UFC 125

    SUBMISSION OF THE YEAR - Zombies Twister

    Beautiful sub.
    Don't know why Tito's is even on there

    REFEREE OF THE YEAR - Herb Dean

    RING GIRL OF THE YEAR - Arianny Celeste

    FEMALE FIGHTER OF THE YEAR - Miesha Tate

    INTERNATIONAL FIGHTER OF THE YEAR - Alexander Gustafsson

    It was a close one for me between Siver and Gustafsson,I think Siver beating georgie was the best win out of the two for this year,but i've personally enjoyed Gustafsson's fights more this year.


    KNOCKOUT OF THE YEAR - Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort at UFC 126

    Nothing really between Silva's and Machida's,but i enjoyed Anderson's more because it wasn't on my boy Randy Wink


    COMEBACK OF THE YEAR - Cheick Kongo vs. Pat Barry at UFC Live 5

    Who didn't say "what the fuck" after watching that
    Warren vs Sotto was a crazy comeback though.

    Ah yes, the Annual "Fighters Only Suck Dana's Cock while pretending that MMA only exists under the Zuffa banner" Awards. Fantastic.

    CHARLES "MASK" LEWIS FIGHTER OF THE YEAR

    * Dominick Cruz
    * Nick Diaz
    * Dan Henderson
    * Jon Jones

    * Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard at UFC 125
    * Nick Diaz vs. Paul Daley at "Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley"
    * Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann at UFC Live 3

    No good fights in Bellator or Dream this year apparently. NONE.

    SUBMISSION OF THE YEAR

    * Chan Sung Jung vs. Leonard Garcia at UFC Fight Night 24
    * Pable Garza vs. Yves Jabouin at UFC 129
    * Richard Hale vs. Nik Fekete at Bellator 38
    * Vinny Magalhaes vs. Viktor Nemkov at M-1 Challenge 25

    Tito?? Really??

    * Vitor Belfort at UFC 133
    * Dave Herman at UFC 131
    * Mark Hominick at UFC 129
    * Jason "Mayhem" Miller at DREAM.16

    No UFC entrance really has any place on this IMO

    REFEREE OF THE YEAR

    * Herb Dean
    * "Big" John McCarthy
    * Dan Miragliotta
    * Josh Rosenthal
    * Mario Yamasaki

    Dana White will be upset that Mazzagatti is not on this list!

    RING GIRL OF THE YEAR

    * Arianny Celeste
    * Kelli Hutcherson
    * Brittney Palmer
    * Chandella Powell
    * Mercedes Terrell

    Should just be called The Arianny Celeste award for being Arianny Celeste and dating ugly blokes.

    MMA PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR

    * Bruce Buffer
    * Jacob "Stitch" Duran
    * Joe Rogan
    * Bas Rutten
    * Burt Watson

    NO VOICE???????

    BEST TECHNICAL CLOTHING

    * Bad Boy

    * Jaco
    * Sprawl
    * Venum

    How is Clutch Gear not nominated!?!?

    MEDIA SOURCE OF THE YEAR

    * "Inside MMA" on HDNet
    * MMAFighting.com
    * "MMA Live" on ESPN
    * MMAjunkie.com
    * Sherdog.com

    thearmbar.forumotion.com gets my vote. Fuck the rest of them.

    FEMALE FIGHTER OF THE YEAR

    * Marloes Coenen
    * Zoila Gurgel
    * Sarah Kaufman
    * Ronda Rousey
    * Miesha Tate

    * Cheick Kongo vs. Pat Barry at UFC Live 5
    * Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (career)
    * Tito Ortiz (career)
    * Joe Warren vs. Joe Soto at Bellator 27

    Tito wins one fight against a hugely over-rated fighter, then gets his ass handed to him and gets nominated??

    COACH OF THE YEAR

    * Rafael Cordeiro
    * Eric Del Fierro
    * Cesar Gracie
    * Greg Jackson
    * Shawn Tompkins

    I just know Shawn Tompkins is going to win this, but in truth he shouldn't even be on the list.

    GYM OF THE YEAR

    * Jackson's MMA
    * Roufusport
    * Xtreme Couture

    MMA JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR The Best of an Appalling Bunch Award

    * John Morgan
    * Gareth A. Davies
    * Josh Gross
    * Ariel Helwani
    * Ben Fowlkes

    They all suck. Nobody will actually win this award for being good, they'll win it for sucking slightly less than the rest. Gareth A. Davies and Josh Gross are two of the worst sports journalist in the world. Morgan and Fowlkes are both fools. Helwani is just a kiss ass.
