    Are these for 2018? DC hasn't fought this year. Neither has Nunes.

    Excuse me, this is not a place for joking thank you.

    So this is only considering their 2018 body of work correct? How is DC not the clear choice?

    Is this for 2018, or June 2018-June 2019?

    One of the worst years in MMA history, none of them deserve it.

    This, not sure on the cutout dates, should be either of those two guys anyway.

    @Jackonfire - People voting for Cejudo because they think this "Year" is for 2019...might want to edit thread title.

    Assuming this is just for 2018, still gotta go Cejudo.

    Beating MM > all

    Odd list. Either way, Cejudo deserves it. What an epic one year run.

    That doesn't explain why Adesanya is on the list...
