Bloody Elbow 2012 Half-Year Awards - Results

via cdn2.sbnation.com

It's all over. After two weeks of voting over eight different categories, we have our winners. A total of close to 21,000 votes were made, which I'd like to thank everyone for. As usual there was some debate about my choices, but not as much as last year. I am considering adding a couple of categories for the year-end version of the awards, so offer up some suggestions if you want. I'm open to anything (shut it, hoseheads).

This year's big winner was the Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung, who took home two of the awards (best fight and best submission). Listed below are the top three from each category. The numbers are number of votes and percentage of the total vote.
