    Conor accepted Nate on short notice, when he didnt have to, and with everything to lose

    Conor DOMINATED Nate for 7 minutes of an 8 minute fight...Conor gassed and then lost...

    There was drama. It was an exciting fight.

    Conor demanded a rematch and went right back in there at the same weight

    He let Nate continue to stay comfortable at 170.

    Conor with zero weight cut, again could only weigh 168lbs

    Meanwhile Nate was around 200lbs




    Also, remember all the talks of "bu but full camp Nate"

    Nate: "If I have a full camp Conor wont touch me"

    [​IMG]

    Beating full camp Nate>>>>>>the 1st short notice fight

    Conor over came the biggest size disadvantage we have ever seen at the lower weights in MMA body percentage wise

    With his pure skill and IQ Conor BEAT out 25lbs, 4 inches of height, and 2 inches of reach (Conor is the real proven P4P#1)

    Conor with that win, AVENGED the only loss of his UFC career via OUT CLASSING Nate

    [​IMG]

    People love to see over-coming adversity, and Conor over came his biggest adversity with an EMPH.

    Conor was Ali coming back to beat Frazier

    Conor learned from the Nate loss, and it took him to a whole nother level. No one is ever going to hang with Conor again.

    Anyway, it was magical...lots of crow was served miles stacked high on cold hard plates...

    Redemption!

    Suprise suprise mother fuckers, THE KING IS BACK



    Then Conor moved up in weight to Matrix fuck the champion ABOVE HIM, to make history



    No one had a greater year

    You want to talk about, "but what was the best narrative" (the excuse used to say Bisping was fighter of the year)

    Well, narrative wise, what gets bigger then Conor, the biggest star in combat sports history, avenging the only loss of his UFC career, just months later

    [​IMG]

    What gives you goosebumps like this

    [​IMG]

    And then instantly after that, literally 4 months later, Conor then MADE HISTORY son

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nothing gets bigger then all of that, especially Conor accomplishing all that in a span of months

    Conor was the undispued fighter of the year

    I already know the Conor hating newbs will latch on to "bu but was 2-1"

    Robbie Lawlor was 2-1 when he won fighter of the year, and he didnt accomplish half the things Conor did

    So thats an invalid excuse

    Just a "convienient cop out" for Conor haters to latch on to. If Conor was undefeated, then it would be on to finding another hater excuse to latch on to

    When it comes to pure accomplishments, natratives, magical feelings, only Conor had it all covered

    Conor broke fight records and PPV numbers...NO ONE HAD a better year, period

    Conor again was the undisputed fighter of the year. No one else made history, no one else's year had themes of redemption PLUS history PLUS Matrix like performances PLUS broke PPV records

    Saying anyone else but Conor is pure hate

    how dare you say something logical and sensible on sherdog. Don't you know that once a fighter becomes popular they are automatically disqualified from any in-cage accolades. Take your logical thinking someplace else.

    Miocic and Bisping are the two other choices.

    If your basis is moving up and fighting larger opponents it has to be Cerrone. 4-0 in a weight class above his usual one, against fighters who actually fight at said larger weight class. 4 finishes, 3 of which were (T)KO's over guys who had never been stopped by head strikes before.

    Don't forget Cerrone and his 4-0 run at welterweight.

    If Cruz beats Cody it has to be him. Come back from a long layoff and win the belt you never lost and defend it twice.

    Bisping and Stipe are good choices as is Conor.

    Conor won it last year man, let someone else get the glory
    Top 5 is def Bisping, Stipe, Conor, Cerrone, Cruz (if he wins) but I don't think Conor deserves #1

    Sure, they are "two other choices" but Conor is the clear-cut, run-away winner

    Dude in many people's eye went 1-2 and had one of the most weak hearted, panic wrestlin', air-tapping losses of a time.

    Lol thats not how it works

    This isnt a liberal participation award

    It simply goes to who was most deserving

    Conor earned it the most, and was most deserving (avenged his only loss, made history etc)

    You cant penalize Conor for being an amazing, revolutionary, super high IQ tactician year in and year out. That's absurd. If Conor continues to have years like this, hes fighter of the year 5 years in a row...if he deserves it...this isnt based on handing out mercy awards to others just because Conor is too great...again, absurd liberal logic
