For the record I've been compiling these lists throughout the year, but I went on a stretch in the past 2 months where I forgot to put down anything. So I may be forgetting some obvious stuff.

I'm probably gonna make a "Breakthrough fighter" list and Lowen Tynanes will be right at the top. Added the Colossa fight because it was definitely worthy.

Thomson-Diaz was a TKO, not a KO. Definitely one of the best finishes of the year though. Unfortunately if I include it I have to include a lot of other TKOs.

I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on Vitor Belfort or TJ Grant for Fighter of the Year so far.

I put Grant up there because he is on such an amazing run at LW and Maynard was ranked top 5. But now that I think about it, Vitor's two wins were both over top 10 opponents. Who is more deserving of #1 right now, Belfort or Grant?

Great lists

How about Minakov over Sparks for KO of the Year.  He hit him so hard the torque put Sparks out and sent him to the hospital for a back injury.

Submission of the year I'm not sure but a few I think you didn't add in there

: Lightweight Reza Madadi def.Michael JohnsonSubmission (d'arce choke)

Faber rncing jorgensen

Daniel Pineda getting a ONE ARMED Kimura

Gleison tibau guillotine over john cholish

James krause guillotine over sam stout

Now that I think about it. Daniel pinedas one armed Kimura wins it for me for SOTY. I'll get back to you on a comeback Phone Post

I think what happened to Reza Madadi might qualify for the story/controversy of the year list.
