    Jones
    Gus
    Benson"s resume is the best but I believe Benson lost the second fight with Edgar so if the proper decision was made he wouldn't be on the list.

    Agreed. All the fights that could have been. I'll be glad to close the book on 2012.

    Hard to say Bendo is fighter of the year when he clearly lost the rematch to Edgar... fuck the judges.

    I give it to Gus

    Bendo and for breakout star Gus is a good nominee.

    TS, how are Weidman and Gus newcomers of the year? Chris Weidman's UFC career and winning streak started in early 2011 and Gus' started in the middle of 2010 lol

    Neither were talked about as contenders then. breakout doesn't mean you started fighting, it means you got relevant quickly

    Because they just got their engines revving in 2012 and are newcomers "in terms' of contenders
