It wasn't fight of the year, but it was damn good. That flying leglock was awesome, you can't hate on that.

I don't really care what gets FotY... As long as there are entertaining fights for me to see I'm happy.

You say that because KZ can take a punch and make it look like it was nothing. KZ definitely controlled the fight, but Poirier was able to defend several submission attempts. It was a class of mix martial arts.

Just to refresh your mind...

I personally found KZ/Poirer nothing special. I thought Varner/Lauzon was much better.

Wasn't Poirer/KZ quite one sided too though?

I dont think it was fight of the year. It was fight of the night on a card that had a lot of shitty fights. I think Rogan and Dana were just saying it was so good cause they knew the card was a stinker and they wanted people to think they had not wasted their 59.99$. First round was crazy but other then the leg lock attempts by Lauzon I didn't think the last 2 rounds were too incredible.

This is Sherdog. I'm sure there are people in some thread saying it was stupid of him to go for it
