Well kids, we've has a great time this year. We've had four new Ufc champions and two new weight classes, three new Strikeforce champions, and two new Bellator champions. We've has some epic comebacks, great fights, and the rise of what might be the next Anderson Silva. We've had the return of Cris Santos, the rise of Ronda Rousey, and the fall of Fedor Emelianenko. Now the question is, are you ready for 2012? And who is the female fighter of the year?
Ronda Rousey: Rousey has had a meteoric rise this year, fighting four (!) times professionally and once as an amateur, and with all of her wins coming by way of armbar in the first round.
Miesha Tate: Tate has only fought once this year, which she won in the fourth round to capture the women's 135 pound championship. In this fight she also became the first person to submit Marloes Coenen.
Sarah Kaufman: Kaufman lost her title (and her undefeated record) last year, but has since rebounded with two straight wins and is the current 1# contender in the 135 pound division.
Alexis Davis: Davis went 2-0 this year after signing with Strikeforce, and is now a contender and and major figure in the bantamweight division.
