Jorge has had an unbelievable year sure. But he's got a fake belt from a doctor's stoppage..... 

Izzy did in 2 rounds what Yoel Romero couldn't do in 10

Not to mention being in the fight of the year and taking a comfortable win over the GOAT in the process. 

Oh yea and that's after being signed last year....

Jorge beat Till (fantastic win)

Askren (fastest knock out ever yes but to an over rated dork crotch sniffer from the b leagues)

And Nate (a gassed up light weight who has a saltier record than the dead sea)

Not to mention Izzy did a fantastic choreographed krump with his boys before laying out the actual champion in 2 rounds

 

IZZY ALL DAY and in my opinion it ain't close

Adesanya barely got past Gastellum so no he's not fighter of the year. 

Till outclassed Gastellum for an easy win.

Oh yea and Jorge whooped Till so there u go. Fighter of the year

I’ll take Masvidal with 3 spectacular wins, all finishes. Izzy only finished 1 of his 3 fights. He was very impressive over Whittaker but I found his performance against a very washed up Anderson Silva to be pretty meh.

Let's compare their wins in order from most impressive to least impressive.

 

1.

Jorge destroys undefeated Ben Askren in 5 seconds. Arguably the greatest knockout in UFC history.

Israel beats Robert Whittaker for the belt.

Debatable but Jorge's win is more legendary and historic. And Robert matches up very well with Izzy whereas Ben should have been a nightmare on paper for Jorge. You could say Izzy's was for a belt but WME belts dont mean much under todays WME matchmaking criteria. I give this point to Jorge. 

 

2.

Israel wins back and forth war with Gastelum

Jorge starches Till (who proved to be better than Gastelum)

Obviously this point goes to Jorge too

 

3. 

Israel has a competitive fight with an old man who hasn't won a fight in 5 years outside 1 gift decision

Jorge destroys a top ranked fighter worse than anyone else has ever destroyed him before in the biggest fight of the year

 

3 Jorge

0 Izzy

 

Jorge is fighter of the year

It is close because a lot of people feel Masvidal is the FOTY.

Yoel fought prime Whittaker, full of confidence. Adesanya fought a mentally broken Whittaker, who was coming off an extended injury layoff. There’s levels to this shit, and the Whittaker who fought Yoel was way better than the one who eventually faced Adesanya.

It’s very close.
 

Israel, Jorge, and Triple C all have a case. 

 

Khabib is clearly not in the running with only 1 win against a man not named Tony Ferguson.

VU. It’s Masvidal imo. No one has had a more impactful year. He took an undefeated fighter’s 0, and set a record that will never be broken in the process.

The Gastellum that fought Till wasn’t the same one that fought Izzy. Think the damage from that war with the champ had something to do with it.
