Sorry for being late on this one, but I after a long day of being outside in the cold I didn't feel like typing anything up after the fights. You guys have spoken and named Cain Velasquez as your 2010 fighter of the year.
First off I'd like to say I was blown away by the main event last night. What a way to close out the WEC! A back and forth war in both the striking and grappling deparments that saw both fighters have moments of success in every frame. And do I even need to say anything about the showtime kick? I think at this point everything has been said. But now to the matters at hand. 2010 has had plenty exciting fights. The nomenees include back and forth technical wars, slugfests, and thrilling comebacks. Rather than set any major criteria for FOTY I'd rather everyone just vote for whatever fight was the funnest. Which fight thrilled you the most. I'm also going to add an (other) option in todays poll after many readers remarked I left people out of the last poll. Please clarify in the comments section if you select other.
Before last night my vote would have been for sure Silva vs Sonnen, but after that performance by Ben Henderson and Anthony Pettis I'm not sure. But my opinion doesn't matter, it's what you guys decide! So without further ado:
