    If they put something like this on FX or FOX...would you be interested in watching it? I think it would be relatively inexpensive for the UFC to put on, and they could even sell tickets for fans to attend.

    Here's some examples of awards they could do and ones I would like to see:

    -fight of the year
    -ko of the year
    -ko artist of the year
    -submission of the year
    -submission artist of the year
    -move of the year
    -fighter of the year
    -comeback fighter of the year
    -comeback win of the year
    -most promising prospect
    -most improved fighter
    -close call of the year
    -biggest upset of the year
    -fight camp of the year
    -best card of the year

    What do you think? Most of the fighters could be there and it would be really cool to hear them talk about things in hindsight. I think it would be great and I would definitely watch it. Any other thoughts/ideas on this?

    Nope, wouldn't watch.

    But would still create and participate in threads complaining about the ridiculous judging criteria.

    Why not just have another card for all the production costs?

    I would watch and at time's participate in how "wrong" we think their choices are on Sherdog.

    Don't they have an MMA awards where all parties are included?

    It pretty much is the UFC award show.

    Hell no, but if they featured bouts in entirety on the Best of DVD/BluRay, I'd likely buy.

    I think most Sherdoggers would both vote and watch if they added categories like:

    Lay'n'prayer of the year

    Point fighter of the year

    Back pedaller of the year

    Ugh. Hello no. What for? Some committee chooses all the winners? That's dumb for movies and music and anything else, but it's even dumber for a fight sport...
