The BE 2014 Year-End Awards are in the bank. Sorry about them dragging out for so long - such is the nature of 10,000 UFC events a year. I changed up the awards a bit this year, and will probably add some different stuff for the half-year awards for 2015 as well. If you would like a new category, or don't like one of the current ones, mention it in the comments. And yes, the "Biggest Loser" one will definitely be re-worked.

Unlike past years there were no fighters that took home multiple awards. But there were some interesting results nonetheless. So without further ado, here are the top three vote-getters in each category.
