    For best fight of the year, McNeil has Chandler vs Alvarez... which was a fuckign AMAZING fight if you haven't seen.... excpet it happened in 2011.

    Brett Okamoto has Mighty Mouse as fighter of the year and Mike Swick to be the comeback fighter of 2012.

    (Swick had a 2 and a half year layoff, but 2012 was hardly a stellar year for him, winning one and losing one, both by KO)

    MM is the most underrated Fighter of the Year ever. Never heard of Okamoto but he deserves a pat on the back for that pick.

    They don't go by the calendar year, I think.

    Nevermind, that's retarded, because someone else had Miller-Lauzon.
    I guess McNeil is just a weirdo.

    I guess it was late enough in the year that they count it as 2012.

    Was a great fight though.

    Chandler vs. Alvarez is a solid pick.

    It was the best fight... of 2011.

    And yeah the entire fight is on Youtube. I strongly urge anyone who hasn't seen it to watch it. You may be shocked to see that there are high caliber fighters not yet signed to the UFC.

    It was in early November of 2011. That's a little loose of a definition for "year," wouldn't you say?

    lol at the pic accompanying the Knockout of the year portion of the article. Terry Etim looks like he's praying to Jesus.
