Last year it fell down to only a few possible contenders, but this year’s selection is tougher because there are a number of fights that have been all out wars in the cage.
Chan Sung Jung and Dustin Poirier battled it out at UFC on Fuel in a compelling featherweight match-up that stole the show.
Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner put on a classic at UFC on Fox 4, while Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez had a dog fight when they fought earlier this year as well.
The hype that built up to Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate was only surpassed by their fight, and while it lasted less than a round, it was as tense as any fight this entire year.
Miesha Tate was involved in another classic later in the year when she took on Julie Kedzie in Strikeforce, and that fight even had Dana White jumping out of his seat in excitement.
Both UFC lightweight title fights between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar could land in consideration.
