The 2009 World MMA Awards conclude this Wednesday, Dec. 30, with a red-carpet, black-tie ceremony that airs live on Versus.com at 10:30 p.m. ET (7:30 p.m. PT local time).

The event, which celebrates and honors MMA's best of 2009, then airs via delay on the regular Versus cable station on Jan. 6 (9 p.m. ET/PT), Jan. 7 (midnight) and Jan. 9 (2:30 p.m.). Each broadcasts runs one hour.

The 2009 World MMA Awards ceremony, a star-studded affair organized by Fighters Only, takes place at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

In addition to dozens of the MMA industry's top fighters and executives, the awards show also features celebrity presenters and guests, such as MMA fans Holly Madison and Wilmer Valderrama, as well as comedian John Heffron, who hosts the event.

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.

"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.

FIGHTER OF THE YEAR

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

... IMO replace Brown by Aldo
