Voting opens on September 1st, so make sure you log on to ensure your vote counts after what has been another highlight-reel year for MMA. Honouring the athleticism, craft, skill, beauty, determination and business acumen that make this sport great, it’s now down to you to vote on the very best of the past 12 months in mixed martial arts. Which fight was your favourite? Which ring card girl takes your breath away? And what brand have you got on your back right now? This is your chance to be heard. After all, your vote matters.
Last year we recorded in excess of 387,000 votes, smashing all previous records, and they came in from every corner of the globe. But this year we are hoping for even more. And, just in case you’re sitting there scratching your head thinking, ‘Who was it who landed the Peruvian neck tie submission which had me screaming at the TV again?’ we’ve pulled together a whole host of MMA insiders and experts to draw up shortlists for each of the 17 public vote awards.
Has José Aldo done enough to retain his ‘Fighter of the Year’ statue? Or will Jon Jones move from ‘Breakthrough Fighter’ in 2010 to take away the top gong? Perhaps you believe Anderson Silva finally lived up to his ‘Greatest of All Time’ moniker this past year, or is Georges St Pierre destined to win back the gong he picked up so graciously in 2009? The choice is ultimately yours…
and make your selection.
