    What are yours so far?

    Fight: Woodley Thompson 2 - I feel sorry for the guy who is making highlights of fights... Must have been one hard task.

    Fighter: Jon Jones - well... You know.

    Event: MayMac - as expected. Pre "fight" confs were more exciting than the "fight" itself.

    Bonus: Boogeywoman weigh in and shit explanations after the lose.

    My biggest disappointment in 2017, is the UFC. They have made bad decisions and hurt the sport.

    1. Allowing Conor to keep the Lightweight Belt.
    2. Allowing Bisping to defend against Henderson and then GSP

    And others...

    Fedor losing to Mitrione in that fashion hurt the most.

    GSP fighting for the MW belt was a joke.

    DC crying was hard to watch. I have huge respect for that guy.

    Conor helping boxing financially seemed like betrayal.

    Frank pulling out of a title fight sucked.

    Tony should be holding the real LW belt.

    Jon Jones for me 100%.

    Being a big fan of Cormier i had accepted that Jones was just the better man only to have it just thrown all up in the air again. Just a lot of mass confusion, it's more of a disappointment really because one of the greatest rivalries will always be shrouded in controversy.

    Oh, right - DC - true. And how it turned later on was making it even sadder. JBJ fucked up hard here.

    DC is one of my favourite fighter even though I am not such a big fan of his fighting style. I totally appreciate his fighting though - but he is just such a likable and intelligent guy.

    Yep definitely a sad moment of 2017

    What is this retroactive hate for the MayMac fight? At the time of the fight literally everyone said it was entertaining, fun event, and delivered as much as possible with the best result realistically attainable.

    Jones. PEDs could cost him tens of millions.

    Oh, who am I kidding. USADA for being a sport killer.
