    Adesanya for me, big year for him, and I think 2019 will be huge too.

    Israel's stalk went up the most in 2018, so he should get this nod here.

    Why is there no "normal" Fighter of the Year vote? Just Breakout FOTY?

    I always lean toward thinking anyone who beats Shields is a world beater... but I need to keep reminding myself that Jake isn't what he used to be.

    Israel is the obvious choice here. Guy has real potential to be something very special.
