    A nothing award.

    He is about to win the Sherdog forum fighter of the year award, which is what truly matters.

    2016 was good to the Count. His knockout of Rocksalt still makes me LOL.

    Rolling Stone also voted Green Day as the best punk band of all time.

    Beat Anderson Silva, Luke Rockhold and Dan Henderson all in one year. Insane. Good for him.

    Nothing more prestigious than a Rolling Stone fighting award. Right up there with MMAFighting's rock artist of the year.

    If he beats Romero he is the middleweight GOAT. That division is plagued by prolific steroid abuse. In any other serious sport steroid users are not considered in the GOAT talk. They should not be considered now either.

    Him winning the belt the way he did. Short notice, probably huge underdog, and having Luke beating him before.

    No one expected him winning, specially KO win

    Whether you agree with the decisions or not, he's beaten two amazing legends, won the belt, and been the first man from his country to do so. I could see a great argument for Stipe instead, but I wouldn't be mad either way.

    Bisping did have a great year, gotta give him props when he deserves it. If he beats Romero, and I think he will, he definitely deserves some love.

    Whom would you give it to? Conor? He last do Nate, got a close win against him, then beat Eddie.

    Mike beat AS, Luke and survived two Hendo bombs. True enough, there were two close decisions - but no loss!
