Good choice for FOTY.

Knockout of the year had to be Yair over KZ. Last second wild upward elbow was better than Nunes being more manly than Cyborg.

He's an absolute beast m8, won the LHW belt and defended 3 times for 3 finishes, moving up for the HW belt.  Out of that list deserves it just on performances and popularity overall. Moose had an awesome year but one fight was at WW, Usman maybe beats him but think he only fought twice.

... it is the International category, he  has a 2.6 mil. strong fanbase worldwide,  or so they said,.......... who does the voting ?
