    All other sports have post season awards for MVP, coach, etc. Do you think the UFC should have awards like these? I know there is the world MMA awards but do you feel the UFC should have their own?

    I propose the following:

    MVP: the fighter that had the most dominate fights that year
    Camp/trainer of the year: Trainer that has done the best job
    KO of the year
    Sub of the year
    Comeback fighter of the year: fighter that rallied back from bad performances

    I think this could be a good promotional tool

    This sounds self-congratulatory to me. Slightly masturbatory.

    There is like a world mma awards now I think.

    The problem with any of these awards is that they heavily skew towards the big name fighters. It makes sense for stuff like best fighter, but a lot of the time best sub or KO goes to someone with a name even if it isn't as good as a regional one. I guess if you take the caliber of opponent into it then I get it, but meh, I don't.
