Herman - Choi was a match up between C-level fighters. That fight doesn't deserve to be on any list.

 ^  Yes, you are correct on Kitaoka.

I agree with you on Mousasi and Hansen/Alvarez for 2008, this thread is just meant to include events in 2009.

I believe this is a new list for 2009, you're refering to stuff that happened in '08.

ill play ...

fighter of the year - Fedor. #1 guy beat a top 5 guy in rd 1 by KO. cant do much better than that.

Fight of the Year - Varner/Cerrone. horrid ending, but a great fight otherwise.

Upset of the Year - Belcher/Kang. Not only was belcher the underdog, but he was also losing the match until he pulled it out of his ass! great finish.

Comeback of the Year - Santiago/Misaki

the Are You Fucking Kidding Me moment - Gilbert Yvel striking effectively from the bottom of mount ... throughout the whole fight.

KO of the Year - Fedor/Arlovski

Sub of the Year - Kitaoka/Gomi

All the anticipation for the Fedor vs Andrei fight, all the yaking about who wins, who loses, the arguing about the baddest man on the planet, and glass chins.

Then that picture of Fedor walking away from one of my fav fighters layed out into living death is just simply classic.
