Enough of this Versus crap.

Either do it on Spike, ESPN/ABC or don't do it at all.

Of course, this is all personal preference because my provider doesn't offer Versus as a free channel.

Supposedly, it'll be available free online.

"World MMA Awards", my ass. More like "World UFC Awards."

I'm really of a mixed mind about fan voting on stuff like this. It's certainly true that supposed experts can make some boneheaded decisions (Major League Baseball's annual awards have no credibility, for example), but the fans are typically not well-informed.

* Georges St. Pierre
* Lyoto Machida
* Anderson Silva
* Mike Brown
* Brock Lesnar

... IMO replace Brown by Aldo
