5 Oz. 2009 MMA Awards

FedorLadies and gentleman, it has been an extraordinary year of ups and down for all of those involved in the rapidly growing world of mixed martial arts, but all things must come to an end, and it’s time for to dish out our official year end awards for the crazy year that was 2009.

We’ll be diving headfirst into a series of fifteen end of the year awards over the next fourteen days, beginning tomorrow morning with “The Top Ten Breakthrough Fighters of 2009“, and ending on December 31 with a special two part New Years Eve year-end award extravaganza…. bonanza.

    Out of curiosity, is there a list for 2008 that is readily available? Just in regards to comeback fighter, breakthrough fighter for predictions sake, don’t want to guess someone who won it last year.

    Can we get an MMA Man of the Year award?

    If so, I vote for SAM CAPLAN.

    …for he is the man! :)

    Brown nosing will not get you the shirt hindsight talked about Nick. Bribes will…

    I’m offering 100 million dollars for the shirt.
