    40 seconds of Destruction of Cerrone should not be a Fight of the Year Candidate it should be the Comeback of the Year by Conor

    Remember that time we were in PbP?
    You were like 'Great fight.'
    I was all 'Yeah.'
    Someone was like 'Hell yeah.'

    That was awesome.

    hah- yeah. not the best pick. but he my boy! probably current fav fighter on the roster now that yoel left the ufc. so to see him come back and do that 2 years after max putting on a striking clinic against him was incredible to watch. very one sided indeed. and its not as if i like this fight because i dont like kz or anything, nothing of that at all.

    For me it's gotta be Jan/Dominick. Standup fight for the title that ended with a dramatic finish. That gets my vote for sure lol.

    Yes. It's a pretty big deal for WMMA.

    Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz II sticks out like a sore thumb in that list IMO.

    Man this really shows you how far MMA has fallen since it's peak.

    Did you actually watch any of these fights? It was a good year for MMA.

    Poirier vs Hooker for sure. The blood, the raw sounds of fists touching bone and flesh, and the fact that it’s one of the best LW fighters in the world battling adds to it as LW is the best division.

    Yeah that's why I think it's so funny, but also terrible for MMA at the same time. Two small women without technique, making sounds similar to female tennis players every time they throw a punch without power. I honestly I can't believe I've watched parts of that fight. There's maybe only 1-2 fights on the list I haven't watched.

    The Spike vs. Billy one I haven't watched.. And the midget fight I've skipped through parts and it gives me the same kind of vibes as the WMMA freak show except they have decent technique at least.
