    Khabib.
    It's crazy that the best UFC fighter in history never won fighter of the year.

    Since the past winners are all champions, I'm thinking Izzy or Jan. Both managed to have 2 fights this year, the other champions only fought once this year.

    If Chimaev beats Leon, that would be 4 wins this year, he might as well win it. Coz he's been the biggest story of this covid era.

    EDIT: Figgy also won 2 fights this year

    Jan and Izzy are good shouts. Only thing against Izzy (as a massive Adesanya fan) was that his fight vs Romero was fairly flat. Yan and Fig could also be in the running depending on how their next two fights go.

    Outside of the box suggestion, but I would argue Khabib deserves it this year. If you consider the year Khabib had in 2020 as well as his supposed bad training camp, and consider the fact that he put on the performance of his life against Gaethje, there is an argument for him to be the Fighter of the year. Not just the best p4p fighter inside the octagon, but maybe the most resilient and enduring outside of it.

    Could be Khabib. Could be Khamzat if he beats Leon. Maybe Volk??

    Didn't realize Figgy has also 2 fights this year, but he beat up the same guy.

    Hard to win fighter of the year when you only fight once a year.
