MMA Awards, First Half of 2011 - Best Post-Fight Celebration

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Over the next few days, Bloody Elbow is going to ask for your opinion on some of the best things that have happened in the MMA world over the first half of 2011. There will be a total of eight different categories you'll be asked to vote on. For simplicity's sake we're going to stick with high-level and relevant MMA stuff in these posts. While I'm sure there was a ludicrous knockout in an unscheduled MMA event at The Lumberyard strip club in Des Moines, or an insane pancreas lock submission on an obscure ZST! card in Japan, let's just stick to stuff a lot of us have seen, okay? And yes, we'll count UFC 132 in this despite it being on July 2nd, since I'm getting a late start on it.

It's pretty simple. I'll post 10 5 options in a category, you vote for what you think was the best. If you think I left something really important off my list, post it in the comments and we can add it to the poll if it's deemed worthy. I can almost guarantee you won't like all my suggestions, but narrowing down these lists to 10 5 is tough.

Now that we've got that out of the way, let's get onto the second poll - the best post-fight celebration of the first half of 2011. Some fighters like Fedor Emelianenko just stand around stone-faced after they've annihilated someone. Others run around like lunatics. Some jump on the cage. Some walk off like a boss. There are all sorts of ways to celebrate a big win, and you're gonna vote on what was the best one so far this year.

Note - this was a hard topic to come up with stuff for, so it's very possible I forgot something good. Let me know.

Here we go, in no particular order:

Mark Hunt calmly walks away from Chris Tuchscherer after knocking him out at UFC 127 - GIF

Tito Ortiz does his patented gravedigger routine after submitting Ryan Bader at UFC 132 - GIF

Shinya Aoki running around after defeating Lyle Beerbohm, Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley - Video

Antonio Silva finally realizes the fight with Fedor  is over, busts out the goofiest smile and jumps around, Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva (no gif or video)

Matt Mitrione walks away from crumpled Christian Morecraft, UFC on Versus 4 - GIF

 

You can still vote on best submission here.

UPDATE - The poll is fixed. Vote now.
