    Kelvin Gastelum/Rick Story could definitely be right there with Hendricks/Lawler
    Max Holloway/Andre Fili
    Brad Pickett/Neil Seery was fast paced
    Takanori Gomi/Vallie-Flagg

    I enjoyed Henderson vs Thompson minus the awful judges

    It's been a weak year in terms of great fights but Lawler vs Hendricks & Curran vs Strauss 3

    I like Kelvin and i'm glad to see his hype wasn't derailed at a young age by getting rushed too quickly, but I thought Story won that fight so the decision hurts it for me.

    Even tho these fights didnt happen I will add Brown vs Lawler, Jones vs Gus 2 and Pettis vs Melendez, because these fights will stand out in 2014

    Well it wasn't a robbery by any means.. A close fight that could have gone either way shouldn't upset you..

    A fight like the Luke Barnatt/Strickland fight was upsetting

    I didn't see Strickland/Barnatt. But I did see the worst decision of all time this year on TUF.

    I wouldn't call it Gastellum/Story a robbery but it was a pretty bad decision in my eyes and I was rooting for Kelvin. Didn't ruin the fight for me, but I just can't put it in my FOTY list as a result.

    Similar to if they would have score Lawler/Hendricks for Lawler when it seems pretty clear to be a 3-2 victory for Hendricks... not sure if that'd had qualified as a robbery or just a bad call.

    Caceres/Pettis was an awesome fight that nobody ever mentions. but the FOTY is Hendricks/Lawler imo.

    Pretty crazy that Brooks-Chandler gets no love here. I know it wasn't UFC and the first two rounds were pretty flat, but that was an incredible fight.
