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:
JDS/Hunt for KOTY.
Maybe Silva/Stann for FOTY
Can't think of SOTY right now.
FOTY - Wand/Stann
KOTY - JDS/Hunt
SOTY - Barao/McDonald
FOTY is Grice/Bermudez
KOTY I would pick Vitor over Rockhold
KOTY: Travis Browne vs Alistair Overeem or Travis Browne vs Gabriel Gonzaga(no im not a Travis Browne nuthugger I just love these KO's) or JDS vs Hunt or Vitor vs Rockhold
SOTY: Sergio Moraes vs Neil Magny or Erick Silva vs Jason High
FOTY: Cub Swanson vs Dennis Siver or Johny Hendricks vs Carlos Condit or Wanderlei vs Stann
Wand vs Stann
Belfort over Rockhold
Sergio Moraes over Neil Magny (coolest)
Pettis over Ben Henderson
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.
Weird, didnt picture you to pick a vitor fight.
I agree with Wand,Vitor and Pettis
FOTY: Bermudez vs Grice.
KOTY: Cigano vs Hunt.
SOTY: Henderson vs Pettis.
Gotta give credit where credit is due, it was a beautiful knockout.
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)
Ah. Well in terms of context, I say Werdum vs Nog
KOTY: JDS/Hunt (c'mon, a HW using a spinning heel kick to knockout the strongest chin in MMA? You can't deny that.)
Honorable mention goes to Rolles Gracie for receiving a contender for KOTY and doing the Ric Flair
FOTY: Cat Zingano/Meisha Tate
SOTY: Jang Yong Kim/Mark Striegl
KOTY: Derrick Mehmen/Rolles Gracie
sub? I like Barao/Macdonald
KO? Gotta go with the great one....Wanderlei over Stann
Fight? Gotta give it the man fighting a different fight right now...Matt Grice/Bermudez
Classic for years to come......Eilers move on over
