Moment of the year had def. gotta be Gonzaga kicking Cro-cop in the head. That shocked nearly the whole world.

Best knockout, Rampage's 1st round KO on Liddell

Fight of the year, Edgar/Griffen.

FIghter of the year, either Fitch or Huerta. Both proved alot this year, and both are looking to compete for a title very soon.

Best up and comer, Frank Edgar

Biggest Loser of 2007- Wandy. he didn't just lose twice he got KOed twice


Just in case you wanna change your vote hippysmacker i want to point out that Wandy has only fought once this year, the CC KO was late last year

Randy beating Timmay does need to figure in the awards somewhere so maybe i should give my moment of the year to that and have KO as GG+CC

Guys, how can UFC79 be card of the year? It has not even aired yet and there is no guarantee that it will be a good card just because of the fights scheduled.


Also, how are you guys deciding CroCop is the biggest loser?

In 2007 he was 1-2. Given the circumstances for his two losses, and the fact that he has a win, I don't understand how he can beat out Chuck.


Chuck lost every fight in 2007 so far and also lost his title.

If Chuck loses to Wanderlei next month I think it will solidify him for the biggest loser of 2007
