Sherdog's Fight of the year 2005-2012

Here is a list of what sherdog has considered Foty in the last 8 years:

2005: Maurício Rua vs Rogério Nogueira
2006: Diego Sanchez vs Karo Parisyan
2007: Clay Guida vs Roger Huerta
2008: Eddie Alvarez vs Tatsuya Kawajiri
2009: Benson Henderson vs Donald Cerrone
2010: Jorge Santiago vs Kazuo Misaki
2011: Frankie Edgar vs Gray Maynard
2012: Chan-Sung Jung vs Dustin Poirier

In the last 8 years, which one fight do you consider being head and shoulders above the rest? It can be the one listed or one thats unlisted.

Always Supporting:

Shogun, Fedor, Nick Diaz, Glover, Alves, Struve, Hunt, Cain
T.Silva, Rampage, Gegard, Gustafsson.

Hm, to me, on your list, I think Misaki/Santiago might be the best pure fight.

However, it wasn't that important and, in MMA history, isn't really important at all. Santiago went on to fail pretty spectacularly in the UFC and I'm not sure where Misaki is. That it still won FOTY despite this is just a testament to how purely good the fight was.

Good fights that didn't get FOTY? Of course, the first Chandler Alvarez fight. I really thought that was FOTY for that year? Also, Henderson/Rua, Bendo/Pettis I, Aldo/Hominick, Wanderlei Silva/Rampage II are memorable for me.

Lesnar vs Carwin, I'm not gonna say was an all-time great fight, but it was definitely memorable and was a huge moment at the time.

Which year was Diaz/Gomi? That was a great fight with a great story around it, too.

Factoring the stakes, I'd have to go with Edgar-Maynard. Based purely on the action, Santiago-Misaki.

Sanchez/Guida should have been the 2009 FOTY.

Chandler-Alvarez was fight of the year for 2011 IMO, and it had some tough competition with Edgar-Maynard and Rua-Henderson.

But for 2007 I'd say Chuck Liddell vs Wanderlei Silva. Talk about a battle
