The listeners of the MMA Weekly Radio program recently voted on their Fight & Fighter Of The Year for 2007. Their choices were Nick Diaz vs. Takanori Gomi as Fight Of The Year and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva as Fighter Of The Year.

Can't argue with either. Anderson is arguably pound for pound the best fighter in the world. And the Nick Diaz Gomi fight went from a blind slugfest and ended in a gogoplata.

I agree.
Two good choices. I have the Gomi/Diaz fight saved on my DVR and I still watch it every once in a while for fun.

Couldn't read the article although I think that the Guida-Huerta fight was better!

I think Sherdog and MMA Weekly both missed on their fighter of the year choices. While I can see how any other time those would be good choices, I think this year it should have been Sam Vasquez. Nobody fought a tougher fight than he did.

Anderson's a good choice, but what about Machida!
