    Diaz vs Conor 2 easily, for as much hype as the fight had it even surpassed expectations and it was thrilling. The middle rounds of Condit vs Lawler weren't good while every round of Conor vs Nate had momentum swings and a story.

    I enjoyed Lawler vs Condit.

    That definitely had a lot of stuff going on.

    Condit vs Lawler on pure in-cage story.

    But with absolutely all things considered... Diaz vs McGregor 2.


    Fantastic year for fights though.

    Dominick Cruz vs Cody Garbrandt

    Choi vs Swanson was mindless brawling and embarrassing to watch

    I'm planning on not watching men's MMA

    I only watch them because they look good and can jerk off to them as a gay man

    One of the best performances of the year does not equal fight of the year, lol. Accusing bigotry is pathetic.
