Bloody Elbow 2013 Half-Year MMA Awards Results

USA TODAY Sports

Check out who led the way in each of the Bloody Elbow 2013 Half-Year MMA Awards categories.

The 2013 Half-Year Awards have drawn to an end. The polls are now closed, and all that's left is the results. Many of the eight categories had some close voting, largely due to the high number of awesome things to choose from in that particular poll. Others had pretty clear frontrunners. What we didn't have was a lot of complaining about selections this time around, which either means I'm getting better at this or y'all are scared of me. Don't be scared homies.

Anyway, let's get to the results. Mark Hunt fans ruined one poll and there was actually a tie for second in another, which I've never seen before. Here's the whole lot.
