    Fighter of the Year – Mickey Gull
    He came out of nowhere and is all of a sudden on the verge of stardom.

    Fight of the Year – McGregor – Diaz 1
    Nothing brought me more joy than predicting and then watching Conor get beat!

    • Timothy Malone

      Are you being serious with the Gall pick lol? He isn’t even ranked.

      • TheCerealKiller

        To call someone fighter of the year, they can not have a loss that year. Conor is out.
        Bisping lost to Anderson in a lot of people’s opinion. He never should have gotten a title shot and thanks to Luke not taking it serious, he won the title. Then he gets to defend it against a 50 year old man. Hendo actually landed a few H Bombs in that fight, but the bomb doesn’t have and powder left in it. Maybe I should be saying Garbrandt, but I think Gall is going to be a killer. 4-0 in 2016 and all three rear naked choke. Maybe Gall can welcome GSP back this year?

  • Timothy Malone

    I can see why you would pick Garbrandt or McGregor, but I think Bisping deserves Fighter of the Year. Everyone counted him out and yet he beat one of the P4P best in Anderson Silva and then on just two weeks notice smashed Rockhold to become champion. Then avenged his most famous loss and set the UFC record for most promotion wins ever. He also won a FOTN or Performance bonus in every one of his fights of 2016.
