    Bigfoot vs. Hunt started a little slow then picked up around the third. Melendez vs. Sanchez was a war from the start.

    That's why I picked Wand vs Stann. Cause Wand KOing Stann to retirement was just that much better.

    Melendez vs Sanchez
    Hunt/Big Foot was **** crazy to watch (two giant freaks with huge power and tons of blood), but Melendez/Sanches was a better fight imo.

    It's just a shame that wasn't a 5 rounder

    Hunt vs Bigfoot and its not even close. Even Gus/Jones with their sloppy striking was a better fight than Melendez/Sanchez.

    Hunt vs Bigfoot
    Melendez vs Canchez is such an overrated fight lol

    It was only good in the third......the only reason this fight is so hyped is because Gil and Sanchez have a lot of fans

    Melendez vs Sanchez
    Sanchez / Melendez fight was insane, by far the best one this year. I found Jones / Gus very nice and is just as good in my opinion as Wany/ Stann. The Hunt / Bigfoot fight started too slow, but both guys went at it. War Melendez and Hunt !
    WAR 209 !

    hard to choose, but Wandy vs Stann was crazy from the beginning a typical struggle of Pride

    GSP vs Hendricks
    Hunt/BigFoot would've been my vote, but for me, it's a tie between Hendricks/GSP & Jones/Gus considering what was at stake & the fact that both fights were razor close, could've went either way, & sparked a lot of controversy.

    Gil/Milendez is overrated. The first two rounds weren't anything we haven't seen a hundred times. Sanchez was going crazy & all but was being picked apart easily. It wasn't until the 3rd round that it really became interesting.

    Wandy/Stann had one of the best rounds of all time, but the 2nd wasn't as good & the fight ended too quickly, imo..

    Wand vs Stann

    Chandler vs Alvarez 2.

    I had to close at work like a can during that event so I've yet to see the fight.

    I definitely think Hunt vs Silva was better than the other foty candidates but personally for me, Cain vs Junior iii was the best fight for me this year.
    What??

    Not really.

    Melendez owned him the first two rounds. The third round was the epic round, and the only one Sanchez won.

    Hunt/Bigfoot went back and forth from the start and every round something significant happened.

    Hunt vs Bigfoot
    Melendez vs Sanchez was too one sided to beat Hunt vs Bigfoot. Just because there are awesome flurries doesn't mean it's close, Gil won like every exchange except one.

    I'm glad I was able to witness the FOTY and greatest HW fight ever in person

    you too huh? What seats did you get? I was about 15ft from the cage on the seats that just started inclining , my seat was about level with the cage floor.

    Crowd was insane right!

    Oh nice, I was directly behind the blue corner (I think, Bigfoot's corner at least) as you walked in Door 11 (or basically the doors that you went through for the weigh ins etc.) my seat was the first one as you go in, like the top row of that lower circle.

    Yeah the last 2 rounds especially were unbelievable! The TV did it no justice how loud it was, plus they couldn't capture the vibrations. Other than the Mizugaki/Phan fight I thought the card took a while to get good, but there could have been 10 boring decisions, it would have all been worth it to be there for that main event

    Jones vs Gus
    2013 has been spoiled for great fights...

    all these fights were great, but gotta vote Jones vs Gus since it had everything... razor thin back and forth close fight for the championship against a champion that, up until then, was untouchable... it truly was like something out of a movie...

    Jones vs Gus
    All good fights. Only reason I'm picking Jones vs. Gus is that those two guys would roll over the rest of the guys as options. Gus won. Boom.

    Wand stann was insane! I agree with that being foty. The exchanges were crazy and they both smashed each other for 2 rds.

    I was pretty much directly opposite you and slightly to your left, lower down though. How funny was the guy that yelled out "believe in yourself Nam Phan" lmfao

    I don't get the people saying Wandy vs Stann..

    It was an entertaining slug fest no doubt but definitely not worthy of FOTY.

    Throwing caution to the wind is great and all but to me those fights aren't better than the great technical and measured fights like Chandler vs Alvarez and Jones vs Gus.

    Great year of fights!!

    Jones vs Gus takes the cake for me though, but has there ever been a year with these quality fights? I don't think so...

    Hunt vs Bigfoot
    On second thought, considering the stipulations, Jones vs Gus should be over Hunt/Bigfoot.

    Like previously mentioned, Jones was dominating the division up until that fight. That fight was so competitive, and the fact it was for the belt makes it that much better.

    I would say

    1. Jones/Gus
    2. Hunt/Bigfoot
    3. GSP/Hendricks*
    4. Silva/Stann
    5. Melendez/Sanchez
    6. Bermudez/Grice*

    hahaha yeah there were some great callouts during the fights. The islanders singing that song during the Hunt/Bigfoot fight was pretty cool too, kinda felt like we were in Brazil with all these songs going on

    This year also had Condit/Hendricks, Herman/Smith, Zingano/Tate, Edgar/Aldo, and so much more.

    Definitely has been the best year of MMA for a long long time
