2011 is almost gone, and it's time for the fans to pick fighter of the year. AND HERE WE GO!
Jon Jones: Jones fought (and won) four times this year, and in those four fights has won the light-heavyweight belt and defended it twice, something no one since Chuck Liddell has been able to do.
Dan Henderson: Hendo has fought three times this year, and in those fights has earned the Strikeforce light-heavyweight title, beaten Fedor, and produced one of the greatest fights in Ufc history. Not bad for a forty-one year old.
Anderson Silva: Silva has fought twice this year, and won both fights by knockout, included his knockout of the year crane kick against Vitor Belfort.
Nick Diaz: Diaz has fought three times this year, including a FOTYcandidate against Paul Daley, and is now scheduled to face Carlos Condit for the interim welterweight title.
Frankie Edgar: Edgar has fought twice this year (both against Gray Maynard), and in both fights has shown the most heart we've ever seen in the cage. Edgar IS Rocky.
Mad at some I included? Can you think of some I didn't? Bitch at me in the comments below.
