I second this.

I'm just watching it now. That was NASTY. Mo was completely out standing, that was brutal. That's definitely up there for KOTY. He couldn't have landed that cleaner.

I'd also like to nominate Bellator 90 for Event of the Year.

4 fights, finishes and that's not including the prelims which were pretty damn good.
