Year of the double champ lol, really reaching there
Tough call. 223 and 229 had a lot of people talking. 232 made a lot of news and further exposed the UFC and USADA for their corruption.
I'll go with a write-in candidate: Fedor reaching the Bellator HW GP finals via two first-round finishes.
The eagle has landed and whooped Conor and his teams ass. This is the story of 2018.
Brawl biggest for this year only, but champ champ started in 2016 and top fighters will still try to copy Conor this year and likely years ahead. So I went with the latter. Continuation effect on the sport as a whole is champs looking for a second belt more so than a title reign, while the brawl is more temporary, even if it's used again for the needless rematch.
"picogram" and "pulsing" jokes made me laugh everyday so I voted that
2, 3, and 4 show what a shit show this outfit has become. I’m not even voting in this. One thing was good. One is unknown. The other three are crap and embarrassing to the sport.
UFC 229 Post-fight Brawl, Nothing can top that for me.
Flyin´Eagle looks like a no-brainer and the most spectacular one, but 2018 might later be seen as the year when other MMA Org. started to somehow react to UFC´s hegemony...
Wtf ,O randy
229 fight and after brawl...
Dolly and Brawl are tied for me.
I went with the 223 dolly attack just because it branched out to affect so many different things.
I voted the venue change. Jones getting caught cheating and not being punished for it and the venue needing to be changed was a big deal. Totally unacceptable.
Excellent poll @jei
Khabib destroying SBG.
They could’ve signed up with the O network, as long as parent network doesn’t dilute the product...
Not really too concerned, I do think it’s a huge step forward with ESPN.
But that said the entire narrative and story line of contrasts on many levels, the build up of that fight: artem shitting his pants, orchestrated dolly, hows Noah lines, the complete darkness before the fight.
That was drama at its best.
Then the post fight brawl, where khabib goes full metal jacket...
Gonna be a great 30/30 documentary in a few years.
What a Gilgamesh/Homeric epic story/bout we got to see this year.
It was a good year.
5 stories nominated and only 2 of those are not bad news. Unless you hate ESPN, then it's 1.
Fuck Conor's tantrum.
Fuck Khabib's tantrum.
Fuck Jones' fuckup.
And fuck ESPN.
Vote for the champ champs.
UFC 229 post brawl . Even my casual fans were texting me to ask what happened there lol.
Dolly incident is a close second too
lol how is a post-fight brawl the story of the year? I didn't think about this once since it happened. Who gives a f?
