    I like it. They should hold an annual award ceremony, since no MMA playoffs. If they held a GP, they could give out trophies at the end of the tourney for most rounds faught, most strikes landed, fastest ko, best submission, etc.

    Gaethje Trophy- most strikes absorbed

    The winner of most strikes absorbed and still able to form a coherent sentence would be impressive.

    Well if other fighters weren’t such selfish pricks and gave back more to the community a different fighter could do that each year. And looking at the roster, there are a lot of fighters that could do that. They are just selfish.
