I did this last year around this time but what are your top canidates so far for KO of the year, Sub of the Year, and Fight of the Year?

I bet most of you will pick Garcia vs. Jung for FOTY, although i thought it was very exciting, im more of a fan of back and forth martial arts war.

KO: Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow
I think the comeback is the big reason i pick this for KO of the year (so far) but its a finish i still cant believe everytime i watch it.

Sub: Mike Pyle vs. Jesse Lennox
It was fast and it put Lennox out, great Submission.

Fight: Joe Stevenson vs. George Sotiropoulos
Great ground fight with a lot of transitions and Sub attempts, and although it definetly wont be considered FOTY its a fight i enjoyed a lot.







Post yours!!!

Ive only gone by UFC fights.

This is my picks:

KO Rua over Machida

The fight meant so much after the controvosy of the first fight and it was also great to see the old Shogun.

SUB Thiago over Swick

That looked a tough fight on paper and the sub was beautiful on put Swick to sleep.

FOTY Lil Nog v Brilz

Amazing back and fourth action, with sweep after sweep. This one just edged the Sonnen v Marquardt war IMO.

haha, yeah. Glad I waited until after june 26th to view this thread.

KO: Shogun over Machida because of what the fight meant, the fact they already fought for 25 minutes, how devastating the visual of the aftermath was and how quick it was

FIGHT: Chan Sung Jung and Leonard Garcia. Hate on the sloppiness of it all you want, but no other fight this year had me entertained as much as this one did. Didn't get the right decison, but still worthy of the top spot.

And now that Werdum vs Fedor is complete, i think it's pretty much a no-brainer that Submission and Upset of the year go to Fabricio Werdum. It'll take a huge performance in the second half of the year for someone to top that fight in either category.
