    Correct me if I'm wrong but these awards are fan voted?

    I just noticed Bisping received international fighter of the year ahead of Gus. That's mental. I'm a massive Bisping fan for the record.

    Did any of you vote? And are these awards considered important in the industry?

    Discuss any of the awards you agree or disagree with.

    I did not vote in any of them, they do not mean anything to me, but if they're legit, they should mean something to those who received the nods.

    I found the existence of about half the categories to be genuinely funny. Best leadman, best ring girl, best technical and lifestyle clothing and so on.

    A buddy at work was reading some of them to me. I felt they didn't nominate a bunch of stuff that should of been there. For the record I thought damian's neck crank was best sub of the year.

    I'm pretty sure these are the same awards that are televised. I watched previous recipients on YouTube ages ago. They lack credibility. I wonder what the fighters think of them.

    How the heck did Cesar's win gym of the year?

    They went 0-2 in UFC title fights, Melendez barely scraped by Thompson, and Shields had a shit showing against Akiyama and then had his boring decision win over Herman changed to a NC after he pissed hot.

    The voting is from Sept to Sept.

    Gus' win over Shogun isn't a part of it.

    Bisping went 2-1 with the sole loss being to the #2 MW in a competitive decision.

    Eh, not a big deal. At least Gus has a great head start for next year's consideration.

    These kind of award are always subjective. Fans will support their favourite fighters no matter what, so it will be biased.
