    Submission of the Year is not accurate at all. lol

    Rothwell choking out Barnett is number 1.

    Fucking Conor influencing awards. lol

    I think Tate putting Holm to sleep for UFC gold takes best sub. Going into the 5th and final rd, Tate knew she was behind on the score cards and needed a finish. In the final 2 minutes, she got Holly's back like she did in the 2nd rd, only this time she showed all her heart and determination, holding onto Holly even after the big flip attempt. It was a down to the wire upset, and 'Cupcake' showed one last time why she used to be called 'Takedown'.

    "So you're a wrestler now?" Nah, Mac knew it was all over even before his half assed takedown attempt. No gas left in the tank.

    I agree with this. Glad it's Bisping and not Conor though. Can't lose a fight and win against that competition. Not fighter of the year.

    I believe it's Stipe over Bisping. Bisping getting his ass kicked by Anderson and Dan and barely surviving but out scoring them makes me put him lower. Still an awesome top 5 year.

    But Stipe beating Arlovski, Werdum and Overeem is pretty legit shit at HW where it's a KO possibility every punch.

    Also Cowboy with his 4 wins is up there but maybe not over Bisping/Stipe.

    and if Nunes beats Rousey than i'd have Nunes at number 1.Beating Shevchenko, Tate and Rousey is an amazing year.

    To me Submission of the year should go to Tate. Lost every round and was losing the 5th and pulled off the late submission anyway.

    I don't think he picked it because it was against Conor. It was really a textbook sub. Nate did everything right.

    Why would a textbook sub against someone who isn't that good at JJ be Submission of the Year?

    Homeless Infant is awesome so i'm assuming he got these from a poll done here or something. There are a bunch of subs better than Nate over Conor.

    That was my 2nd choice. That one was the only sub that got me to jump up with joy. Incredible moment.

    Don't forget the second round.

    Yeah, these aren't my picks. Poll results.

    My choices:

    EOTY: UFC 199
    KOTY: Lando/Bisking....either is good with me
    SOTY: Mackenzie Dern overall :p UFC specific i'd probably say Miesha. But for some reason she wasn't an option...heh. So voted Skelly.
    Fight: Polo vs MDHK
    Fighter: Dom after 207

    Fuck that shit, Skelly should have gotten it.

    Got an exotic choke in like 2 seconds.

    Skelly sub was great for sure. But Blanco is no Barnett.

    Ben getting Josh in that sub was still the best. That or Miesha over Holm.

    Both UFC 199 and UFC 206 were greater than UFC 205 in terms of actual fight quality, divisional importance and the progression of fighters afterwards. But there were no "megastars" on them, so they got behind in polls. Still UFC 199 is the best for me.

    Wow. Just checked out the submission of the year thread and there wasn't even one mention of Maia submitting Condit and becoming the first man in ten years to finish Condit and doing it in like 90 seconds. I'm disappoint.

    Good stuff, guys. Sounds about right to me. I do think that UFC 199 was the best event in quality of fights, but who can go past that monumental inaugural NY card for sheer anticipation and excitement, culminating in a performance for the ages.

    indeed. how the dick did you miss that? <43>

    I'm blame @Homeless Infant and his rampant antisemitism.



    I voted for Stipe too.
