    Yep, I'm curious about the dates and which month the duration starts and ends, if they're counting it as a year/12 month period. A lot of the choices, especially the fights, happened in 2020, but it says 2021 World MMA awards.

    Actually says that on the voting site, what the fuck, lol. Should be some exclamation points in there.
    Holy shit. For an 'actual mma site' to put that up is a bit... awful.

    Has Sherdog ever been nominated or won? I'd vote for it as Best Media Source and some of its writers as best journalists.
