    I'ma go against you for fight of the season. Emerson vs Taimanglo should at least be an honorable mention. I enjoyed both fights very much Emerson vs taimanglo has everything you look for in a fight. Emerson went balls to the wall every round rocking Taimanglo multiple times, amazing throws but Taimanglo, had him in a couple deep submissions. AMAZING FIGHT!! I still can't find a video though

    Things this season proved for me:

    Marcin Held has finally come into his own.

    The resurgence of Patricky Pitbull is awesome.

    Karl Amoussou, Marlon Sandro, Brian Rogers and Marius Zaromskis still got somethin' in the tank.

    Andrey Koreshkov is still a monster.

    Liam McGeary deserves tougher competition.

    Daniel Weichel likes to surprise me.

    bellator has produced another great season

    no doubt curran/straus was the fight of the season, but warren/silva and chandler/brooks were both great.

    curran surprised me the most. after their 2nd fight i just assumed that straus had the higher ceiling and had passed curran by.

    Terrado/Baesman, Pitbull/Rickels & Bessette/Nunes were the best fights IMO. Curran/Straus finish was the best moment but the fight wasn't exactly a 5 round war. At the time of the choke, most thought Curran was going to lose, but of course the judges had him up..

    Damn, surprised with the lack of love for Emerson vs taimanglo that was honestly one of the greatest fights I've seen in my life. I haven't seen it since watching it live but it was an absolute war.

    I enjoyed Warren-Silva as well, was pretty competitive until Warren went full wrestlemode. Didn't expect Silva to tag him as many times as he did.
