    Benson for sure Fighter of the Year.
    Aldo for sure for celebration of the year.

    FOTY could be Varner vs Lauzon IMO

    FOTY: Fitch vs Silva
    KOTY: Barboza/Etim
    SOTY: Jung/Poirier
    Fighter of the Year: will probably be Jones, but could be Bendo
    Celebration of the Year/Decade/Century is Aldo vs Mendes. Seriously, there has never and will never be a better celebration.

    Now that there's only one more major mma event left (No more for Strikeforce/Bellator, at least,)

    Korean Zombie vs Dustin Poirer is definitely my FotY.
    Lauzon vs Varner would probably be a close 2nd.
    Others would include Gaudinot vs Lineker, Grant vs Dunham, Delorme vs Denis, Spang vs Rogers, Woodard vs Pitbull

    I agree. However, IMO, there should be two fights of the year award: one for title fights, one for non-title fights. Actually, I think that should be the case for every category.

    So my awards would go:
    Non-title fight of the year: Poirier vs. Korean Zombie (it was worth all the hype, and then some)
    Title fight of the year: Henderson vs. Edgar I
    Submission of the year: Amoussou vs. Baker
    Knockout of the Year: Barboza vs. Etim
    Title-holding Fighter of the Year: Benson Henderson (although Ronda Rousey makes a strong case for that award, too)
    Non-title holding Fighter of the Year: Johny Hendricks
    Comeback (Titleholder) Fighter of the Year: Georges St-Pierre
    Comeback (Non-Titleholder) Fighter of the Year: Jamie Varner
    Best (Non-UFC) Rising Star: Michael Chandler (Bellator)
    Story of the Year: Injuries lead to cancelled bouts, reshuffled events, and the cancellation of UFC 151.
    I'm torn between UFC 153 and UFC 154 for event of the year
