    Didn't Chan Sung Jung win submission of the year last year (with that awesome twister) and fight of the year in '10?

    I rewatched his fights with Garcia(2nd one) and Poirier, he definitely deserved the awards he got for those two fights. I think his first fight with Garcia is overrated though. Still, the dude's an animal and he has improved a lot in a short period of time. We hear fighters say they would be more successful if they didn't focus on being so exciting but I think KZ has proven that to be the case after his loss to Roop and he didn't even have to sacrifice excitement.

    KZ threads are as obvious as Akiyama threads. They're perrenial studs, we get it.

    He really is. His flying knees are sick and his transitions on the ground are lightning quick.

    Haven't seen it in awhile but I wasn't all too impressed. I enjoyed many other fights from 2010 more. Fights like Edgar vs Penn2, Diaz vs Davis, Lauzon vs Rudegar, G-Sot vs Stevenson, and Silva vs Sonnen were much, much better IMO.

    These were brutal one-sided beatings. That might be what fits your requirement for great fighting but personally, I want a competition.

    I love KZ, but even in his own division he's not the best. Aldo smashes him. But when Aldo smashes Edgar and goes 155, I'd love to see KZ/Edgar. I think KZ could really be a VERY long reigning champ at 145, if he can beat Edgar.
