I think I literally shouted "WTF?!" as Aldo dashed into the crowd. This gets my vote

Mine too. It was an inspirational moment you wouldn't imagine you'd see after such a violent ending.

I went with Jones refusing to fight. I know that is in some ways kind of a cop out vote, and we, as well as the media, chael sonnen, and Dana white have beat the piss out of that dead horse more than enough, but the main reason that is my WTF moment is that he is the champion and he turned down a fight. I know that we hear other fighters accuse the current champ of their division of ducking them and turning down a fight with them all the time, for example Chael saying that Silva ducked and refused to fight him for something like 3 years. However, more often than not it is never confirmed and it always ends up as a he said she said type of thing. This is the one time that I can recall since I started watching mma back in '07 that we actually know for a 100% fact that the reigning champ refused to do fight. It literally made go "WTF?! You have got to be fucking kidding me!" as I read the news. It blew my mind. That's my rationale for picking it.
It was close for me between that and Aldo running into the crowd, but the logic mentioned above is my reason for picking the UFC 151 fiasco.

I went with Aldo - the Prindle kick was just a mistake, and the Jones debacle was a debacle but it took some time to unfold and was based on a bunch of (bad?) decisions.

I went Jones, for me it was the biggest shock of 2012.
