    I think it should have been Gus too but Bisping beat Chael.

    All 3 of Alex's wins were more impressive and against better fighters than Bisping's wins IMO.

    Debatable I gave it to Chael but I wouldn't have complained if Bisping won.

    It ended up coming down to 3 votes, and those just happened to be cast by the judges from Bisping vs. Hammill.

    What is the requirement for being considered an "international fighter".

    Why was Kampmann nominated and GSP wasn't.

    Fight of the Year: Joe Lauzon vs. Jamie Varner.

    C'mon. I love J-Lau but on a list with Hendo/Shogun, Chandler/Alvarez, and Jung/Porier this just makes no sense.

    Miller win wasn't even 2012. Don't think this award is a big deal, but even someone like Struve deserved it over mike.

    Well that's fucking stupid. Bisping gets outstruck loses a round to Mayhem, then still fails to knock him out, essentially TKOing him due to exhaustion, then loses to Chael in a competitive, but not terribly interesting fight. Bisping then finishes out the year with a lukewarm decision win over Brian Stann, in which he almost got Hendo'd again, and had to wrestle his way to a decision win.
    Gustafsson, meanwhile knocks out Vladdy with a jab, dominates Thiago Silva in front of a home crowd in Sweden, then gets the biggest win of his career in a barn burner against Shogun Rua...I don't understand.

    Can only guess because of how inactive he was.
