    Very entertaining fight but definitely not fight of the year. Alavarez-Chandler was my pick with Hendo-Shogun coming in second. I don't understand how that gets fight of the year over the others.

    Edit: choices were Hendo-Shogun, Alvarez-Chandler, Ellenberger-Sanchez, KZ-Poirier and Varner-lauzon.

    Alvarez/Chandler happened 11/19/2011. Not 2012. Not the 29th.

    Hendo/Shogun happened the same night, on November 19th. Again, 2011.

    Hendo shogun was the best in 2011. Lauzon and Varner was best in 2012.

    It definitely was. It was a great back and forth war. KZ/Poirier was a little too one sided for my taste but It was an exciting fight still.

    Why would they have fights from 2011 as choices to pick from that makes no sense?! Lauzon vs Varner or Miller were my picks for FOTY.

    Yeah, it was the 19th, not the 29th. My bad, but still, my point was that they took place in late 2011.

    Yes, but after the voting had already started for the 2011 Awards.
