    It was a great fight... but KZ/Poirier and Varner/Lauzon had more ebb and flow.

    yes it was, great showcase for skill and heart, a hard test to GSP, Condit almost had it at one point, a true championship contest

    Awesome fight.

    ESPN picked a very solid choice for fight of the year. Definately top 3.

    I'm sure there was a couple of other better fights.

    I'm thinking fight/fighter profile plays a factor in their decision (higher the profile fight/fighter the better).

    Zombie vs Poirier was more exciting while it lasted, no doubts.

    Still think KZ/Poirier should have got it.

    Still a good fight though.

    Was a good un GSP closer to be finished in a long time... still felt Condit just turned up for the payslip tbh, felt he was holding back.

    There were other fights that were better though :)

    Everyone knows that the real FOTY was Poirier vs KZ or Varner vs Lauzon

    I usually hate watching GSP fight, and I thought that was a really good fight.

    Some other contenders were Shogun vs. Vera, and Lauzon vs. Varner.

    I'd have to agree, you're talking about the Number 1 WW (and top 3 P4P) fighter coming off a year layoff and possibly career ending injury against a beast of a challenger. The fact that Condit pushed him farther than any in the past 5 years means a lot.

    With the GSP fight, that was my top 3.

    Any of those 3 fights is a good choice, it comes down to personnal choice.

    I personaly agree with ESPN, GSP Condit was extraordinary.
