It came down to 1 vote, but Mania has selected Shogun Rua's KO of Lyoto Machida as the 2010 KO of the year. The voting was close between Shogun/Machida, Daley/Smith, and Condit/Hardy with 3 votes seperating 1st from 3rd. There was absolutley no love (other than me and 1 other maniac) for Garza's flying knee KO, but I can't say I didn't see that comming.
For tonights poll we look at Breakout fighters of 2010. While the definition of breakout fighter is fairly objective I will attempt to give a little guidance, but feel free to ignore my oppinion (ass holes) ;). A breakout fighter is someone who was a blip on the map just a year ago and rose into contention through a series of wins. In my oppinion this should not include prospects like Jon Jones and JDS who have been on the map for some time now, but to keep everyone happy they will be included in the poll. So whether you agree with me or not vote on the 2010 breakout fighter of the year.
*UPDATE- I neglected my Bellator buddies so I added Hector Lombard and Ben Askren to the Poll. If you wish to change your vote let me know in the comments section.
