I took Hendricks as I did not see that coming at all and still would pick Fitch the next 10 times they fight

Wasn't Jung a 3:1 underdog against Poirier, or does an upset have to have a quick unexpected ending?

however you view it. Whether from real money lines, PG odds, if you gave ___ a 5% chance to win, etc. It could be quick or it could be late in the fight. At the beginning of the month, I posted a nomination thread and asked members to PM me their nominees. I tallied them up and these 2 garnered way more votes than the rest.

Oh, okay

This is just my second day on the forums. I didn't realize there were nominations. That sounds like fun... can't wait for the next one

there is a thread stickied at the top of this subforum for the 2013 awards. It's there to keep track of all the things that happened throughout the year so we don't forget. If you have any suggestions for an award, post in there and I'll add it to the list.

I went with Varner. I knew Hendricks could pose a problem for Fitch but I regrettably didn't give Varner any chance at all.

Went with Varner as well. Did not think he would beat, let alone finish Barboza.

I was also equally surprised, the way Jung dominated Poirier. He really put on a show.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Varner over Barboza.

Just about everyone picked Barboza and Varner looked leagues better on that night.
