    Did you really have to call benson 'male fighter of the year' instead of fighter of the year? Otherwise, I agree with knockout and female fighter. Comeback should be boetesch, fight should be Kz/pourier.

    Fox 5 was underwhelming,
    Ko should be pat barry on Shane or cowboy on gullard.

    KZ vs Priorier was far better than Rua vs Vera.

    "female fighter of the year" must have been an incredibly difficult choice.

    If people really think Shogun Vera was the Fight of the year, that only shows how goddamn much Shogun has declined over these few years. That fight was embarrassing to watch considering what kind of a shark Shogun used to be.

    Real fight of the year was Poirier vs KZ.

    For sure.
    i remember thinking how bad must have been for him ..someone as fast and powerful as pat barry throwing a damn hook from beyond his hip..
    Letting HD find his range is never a good idea.

    I completely agree with statement that Lauzon vs Varner is FOTY and even more, it's better than Shogun/Vera.
    I don't think that Comeback of the Year is supposed to mean what is mentioned there but more of a comeback in fight...I guess? In that case I would nominate Shogun in Hendo fight but I'm not 100% on it so any other choices?
    And I would give Knockout of the Year to Hendricks over Barboza only due to the way he set it up. For those who may have missed it. He didn't miss the strike before KO he used it to knock the defending hand down to land clean.

    EDIT: I would nominate Fitch/Silva for FOTY 'cause Silva caught him very nice at some points and even rocked him at one point I think and was very close with that RNC on him. It showed how good Fitch's submission defense was and how Erick didn't tap was admirable too.
