2019: Jorge masvidal
The rise of Chimaev since his first UFC fight in July 2019 is hard to top. Two fights in 10 days (at middleweight, then welterweight), followed by another middleweight fight 2 months later. All three fights finished in dominating fashion.
Chimaev has gone from virtual unknown, to a potential UFC title challenger in two weight classes, in the span of less than 6 months.
Kevin Holland's 5-fight win streak from May to December is hella impressive as well, but he's been establishing himself in the UFC since 2018, so I don't consider it as much of a "breakout".
Khamzat got the hype but Holland deserves it more.
Khamzat and Holland
Holland deserve it more than Chimaev because he fought 5 times in 2020 and he won in all of his fights but Khamzat had only 3 fights but he won in all those 3
So... are you agreeing with me then?
Yeah i agree with u because that is the truth Holland fought more than Chimaev
Just weird to have someone post in agreement on Sherdog.
Holland will be Champ IF Whittaker and Izzy does not EXIST and Quadruple belongs to Cejudo if he wants to come back and Fight Volk for the FW belt
Unknown to talked about headliner = breakout
Holland had the better year but Khamzat got people talking. He was basically a nobody while Kevin already had time in the ufc.
Sherbro logic finally got it right.
It's got to be The Mouth.
Kevin Holland winning this poll is perhaps the most blatant form of recency bias mankind has ever seen.
I voted Gilbert Burns. Because he is the best fighter that is also a breakout on the list. But Chimaev is a close second. Holland...okay he knocked out a 41 year old Jacare in super impressive, flashy unorthodox fashion. Yes. But has he really beaten better competition than even Khazmat's? Not really. And he got subbed by Brendan Allen right before 2020 officially happened as a year.
"Lucky" Lauren Murphy, doesn't belong on that list. You could have added BOBBY GREEN who made a 4 fights with 3 wins. Also YOUSSEF ZALAL who had 4 fights too, with 3 wins.
Kevin Holland beat no ranked fighters to become 15th and beat no ranked fighters to become 10th ranked. Be biased all you want but don't lie.
2019 Usman won the title and defended it and everybody gave the fighter of the year to Jorge, its a popularity contest not merit based.
The award being discussed is breakout fighter of the year. It was given to Jorge because he arguably had the two best ko’s of the year after having been a relatively low profile fighter for years. I can give you the info on fighter of the year if you’d like.
Chimaev without a doubt, it's not even close. He's already getting top 3 fighters as opponents.
why does Holland have more votes than Goatmaev
