  1. Ben says:

    The WEC should have been listed as a candidate for promotion of the year, and I’d have voted for them.

  2. IceMuncher says:

    It’s a shame Guida vs Huerta wasn’t nominated for FOTY.

  3. Jeremy (not that Jeremy) says:

    Yeah, I was not happy with the fight of the year candidates. They left several (at the least) worthy fights off the table.

  4. Grape Knee High says:

    I have to admit, I am perplexed by some of the choices.

    Mac Danzig for rookie of the year? Seriously? Not only for the fact that he’s hardly a rookie, but if you did he’s still only 1-2 on the year.

    Melvin Manhoef for cult fighter of the year? (The description of the question is: “The fighter with the funniest antics in and out of the ring.”)

    No Cage Rage or WEC for promotion of the year?

  5. klown says:

    Best German whuh?

  6. Jeremy says:

    Gonzaga should be on the list for most improved and Tyson Griffin/Guida should be on the list for Fight of the Year.

  7. nicklovesmma says:

    I can’t choose between Mayhem or Minowaman for Cult Fighter of the Year

  8. Chuck says:

    I would have loved to vote Manhoef vs. Yong Dik Soon for fight of the year, but it was not a candidate. So I chose Shamrock vs. Baroni. I chose Minowa for cult fighter of the year. I am pretty sure I chose K-1 HERO’S as promotion of the year. Boxer of the year I chose Miguel Cotto.
