it's a two fight race right now for Fight Of The Year:

Alvarez-Hansen

Torres-Maeda

I get the feeling I will be adding Gilbert Melendez vs. Josh Thomson when they fight.

In my opinion that should be on every list. I think it is definitley one of the top 5 fights this year, if not the top fight of the year. Faber and Pulver should also be up there.
