I'm sorry, but Varner vs Lauzon is easily FOTY and it's not even close

    I'll pretty much agree with this. I cant really think of a fight that I found more exciting than Lauzon/Varner this year.

    Eh, I can see how you would enjoy the constant exchange of techniques Varner and Lauzon put on each other more but imo Nate/Woodley was better having more damage exchanged between the two men and both of them getting rocked twice plus a more satisfactory finish.

    Varner/Lauzon was fun all the way through but it lacks a significant "high point" for me.

    Great fight, I think if Varner had not taken the fight on short notice and had more gas he would have won the decision. Great fight though.

    You also have to take into account the automatic deduction of FOTY points for any fight involving TWood due to the constant screaming:

    Similar to how no KenFlo fight was ever seriously considered for FOTY :icon_lol:

    Ugh...Keith Florian.


    There's a cornerman I won't be missing any lifetime soon.


    I swear he'd just sit there screaming KEEEEENNNYYYYYY at the top of his lungs more than he'd dole out any advice.

    Yeah it was an awesome fight.
    Varner took the fight on short notice, maybe that
    was the reason he faded in the 3rd round and got subbed.
    Anyway it should at least be a nominee for FOTY.

    Damn, I didn't know that... That dude is in for a seriously short career. His knees are totally shot.

    Or did that Rosol dude just steal his soul and now he just can't bring himself to show his face in public?? :icon_twis:icon_twis
