Recommended Posts

Make your nominations for the MMA awards. Up to three nominations per category.

 

Because there aren't enough Paidos who follow MMA to make a reasonable fist of nominating the best MMA poster on the board, I'll leave it open to those of you who are more familiar with the threads to put some candidates' names forward.

 

- Best MMA fighter

 

- Best MMA fight

 

- Best MMA event

 

- Best MMA poster on the UKFF

- Best MMA fight

I don't know if it was actually any good or not, but Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva was the only big fight that I heard about in my non-MMA-following world this year (Lesnar vs. Overeem was last year, wasn't it?)

Ronnie, do you want me to canvas the MMA thread for some nominations?

I'm a mong and stupidly left this to the Paidos, Stu. It should've been in the main forum, where the denizens of the MMA threads would see it. Once neil's moved it across they'll be able to vote. Thanks, though!

Struggled with Best fight, wanted to include Rousey vs Tate but I've got a feeling Marquardt vs Woodley will get overlooked and I think it deserves some recognition. Rousey vs Tate will probably make the shortlist anyway I imagine.

 

Ah fuck, forgot all about Tate vs Kedzie as well.

No votes for Benson Henderson as Fighter of the Year? I'm surprised by that as Henderson went 3-0 in the deepest weight class in the UFC, the Lightweight division. Henderson should be 2-1 as he should have dropped the decision to Frankie Edgar at UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar 2 but the record will say he won.

lamby's a good shout, he's been one of the better posters this year in the MMA threads along with Supremo and yourself Silky. I think overall the discussion in the MMA threads have been great this year.

 

On Ben Henderson, he's a great fighter but I couldn't in good conscience put him in my top 3 over Anderson Silva. No way. Anderson has been breathtaking. And at 37.

 

I couldn't put Benson over Jones either. And I think Ronda deserves to be on there more as well, not only for her two impressive....wins, but for becoming one of the biggest stars in the sport and making history becoming the first UFC women's champion. That trumps 3 decisions (1 of which he should have lost) for me.
