At this weekend's World MMA Awards presented by Fighters Only, Chris Weidman was named 'Fighter of the Year' for his win over Anderson Silva. However another fighter up for the award believes the choice of the award going to Weidman was just shameful:

"The ceremony in Las Vegas was pretty cool, but the votes are from the fans, not always they are right. Sometimes the results aren't fair. Duane is a good coach, but, for the God sake, especially this year, the winner not being Dede Pederneiras...There is something wrong."
