I watched more UFC last year then ever before! & I loved every minute of it!

My favourite fight of 2012 by far was The Korean Zombie vs The Diamond!!!

Not only cause it was an all out war but because I made 400 dollars off my buddies who were convinced the Zombie was getting fed to Poirer.

What was your fav fight of the past year?

Off the top of my head I would say TKZ vs Dustin Poirier and Jim Miller vs Joe Lauzon.

What I liked so much about Miller/Lauzon was how badly beaten up Lauzon was in the 1st and he survived the fight and nearly won.
I was kind of wondering what would have happened if there were another 15 seconds or so in the last round. Would Lauzon have pulled off the unthinkable. Epic battle.

I'm trying to think of a fight that was better than Poirier vs. Jung but I can't. That was a war. I think my 2nd choice would be Lauzon vs. Varner but Miller vs. Lauzon is just as good as that fight. Either way, it was a great year of fights.

The fights I enjoyed watching the most this year.. there were a few

Shogun/Vera
Tate/Kedzie ( I know it's SF but still an amazing fight!)
Silva/Sonnen 2
Barboza/Etim
Also I loved Dunham/Grant but the decision bummed me out a little cuz I lost a bet lol.

Ya lots of great fights this year that's for sure, those ones are just significant because I remember myself being amazed and excited at those in particular.

Oh, I forgot about Tate/Kedzie. Those two went to war. Hell of a fight. I'd add Kaufman/Davis as well. Those have been my two favourite WMMA fights of all time.
