    You said it Dana. Glad he owned up to that. This was supposed to be a contender for fight of the year.

    Well, that was a dud. Great for Izzy fans, but a total one sided beatdown. I admit I was rooting for Paulo, but I wasn't going to surprised at all if Izzy won. However, I was surprised he made it look that easy. This whole time I was saying it was gonna be back and forth 50/50, but we didn't see that at all. Costa looked like he did not belong in there with Izzy. All that talk of Izzy being a skinny clown, well who's the clown now?

    My vote for fight of the year still goes to Zhang vs JJ. Dunno about all of you.

    I never thought this fight would be close or back and forth. I felt if Costa caught him with something early he might run right through him. If not, I figured Izzy picks him apart since they're not close skill wise. Any fight there is a chance for an incredible comeback, but I really didn't expect much else than whoever won dominating. I had it at 60-40 Izzy, but said whoever won would make it look easy.

    I haven't watched as much as usual this year, the cards are so watered down these days, the JJ vs Zhang was the best fight i have seen personally (that i can remember off of the top of my head).

    Ferguson vs Gaethje was too one side to be a FOTY imo

    Ferguson vs Gaychee, just so Tony can get paid for that brain damage (if fighters who get that fight of the year award get some $$ compensation as well)

    Hooker was in a couple bangers this year, vs Felder and Poirier. Those were the two most entertaining fight I've seen this year.

    And I still contend if they rematch only the same 2 options appear. I don't believe Izzy could sustain punishment from Costa, were Costa to figure out how to hit him more than a couple times a round. And we've seen what happens when he can't.

    I mean I agree, but I had to post some other options. I think Justin Gaethje vs Ferguson was too onesided and Dustin took over after round 3 against Hooker. However, there's a lot of people here who just don't like WMMA and would never acknowledge a women's fight could be the best of the year. It's unthinkable for them.

    Hard for their fight to be fight of the year when it happened 2 years ago.

    Yeah I wasn't trying to imply those other fights shouldn't be on a poll...every poll needs options. This year, at least so far, there's really no question who the winner is.
