    I wasn't near as whacked off by Condit/Hendricks as some of you were. I can honestly name a handful of fights that I thought were better or on par, but maybe not as high profile:

    -McDonald/Pickett
    -Poirier/Koch
    -Natal/Tor
    -Healy/Miller
    -Brown/Mein

    JDS/Hunt for KOTY.
    Maybe Silva/Stann for FOTY
    Can't think of SOTY right now.

    SOTY is Pettis Henderson for me. One of the fastest, slickest armlocks I've seen in a champsionship fight, let alone any fight. (not including Fedor)

    In terms of SOTY, I always saw it as best technique, difficult submissions, ect. Chael didn't do anything extremely spectacular. He doesn't usually do subs, but he got one. Don't see all the hooplah, honestly.

    Brown vs Mein was absolutely crazy, just as Bermudez vs Grice was

    Hopefully Paul Taylor vs Anthony Njokuani will be a great fight

    Also loved Condit vs Kampmann more than Condit vs Hendricks

    OTY awards are very subjective. Some value technique and such like you, and others like me value context. There's no real right answer for which is the better method of choosing OTY. Just depends on your personal preference.

    But I chose Chael/Shogun for SOTY because before the fight everyone said his only chance of winning was a 5 round wrestlefuck and instead he submitted Shogun, a black belt who all his fans thought was going to submit Chael, faster than anybody's ever beaten Shogun (barring that Coleman arm break)

    FOTY: Wanderlei/Stann

    KOTY: JDS/Hunt (c'mon, a HW using a spinning heel kick to knockout the strongest chin in MMA? You can't deny that.)

    SOTY: Pettis/Bendo.

    Honorable mention goes to Rolles Gracie for receiving a contender for KOTY and doing the Ric Flair
