    IMO Bisping deserves it, just for being the underdog and career resurrection story. Stipe is a close 2nd with his 3 dominant first round KOs and capturing + defending the HW belt. Conor would be #3

    depends what "fighter of the year"means. If it means the fighter who has had the greatest impact on the sport, give it to Conor (like Trump being Time magazines person of the year). No implications here except that they are important to the sport. I vote for Conor

    What Bisping did is more unlikely, thus deserving fighter of the year. If someone said to me in January, that he was going to beat Anderson, win the belt in the first round, and then defend it. I would have thought you were crazy.

    This. Impact is the important measure here I think.

    Conor's loss is a tough one to overcome... but keeping in mind saving the 196 card by taking a last minute replacement does take some of the heat off that loss.

    I would say Conor did have the most impact on the sport in 2016. I agree with Bisping that Conor had the biggest events & most attention... & won a belt in a 2nd division very easily & that is worthy of consideration.

    Stipe deserves it, Conor is 2-1 with one win being a close decision and a loss by finish, Bisping is 3-0 but with 2 wins by close decision. THE GREAT FIREFIGHTER has killed everyone in his path. He's the alpha of the year.

    Stipe beat a couple 10 year past their prime HWs and a 40 year old Werdum. Conor became LW champ while losing to a non top ten LW.

    Bisping deserves it just as much.

    That sharp intake of breath and the panic on his face is hilarious

    That's right.

    2 belts to Bisping and Miocic's 1.

    And she's not in contention for Fighter of the Year so what's your point other than showing how emotionally invested you truly are in her?
