    All I know is Whittaker / Romero 2 was my favorite fight
    And the Aldo KO of Stephens was my favorite stoppage

    That's assumed. TS probably meant best 2018 fights aside from all the ones with Gaethje in them.

    They should change the name to the Gaethje award.

    Haha, I wouldn't go that far. He's one of the few good MMA fighters from my small state, and that really was a nice fight. I root for him and wish him the best, but man....he needs to learn to check leg kicks.

    Including Wonderboy vs Till in your list is the ultimate hipster move. The other fights listed had more happen in each round than that fight did the entire duration. "But they are such high level strikers bro"
