    We have still got one UFC event and the K-1 finals to go. So I will wait just a few more weeks before bringing out my votes.

    ok it was a big fight 4 sonnen... its ok and a good fight too.. but

    who of you saw the UFC 116 card live??? i saw it and i went crazy!!!

    that was by faaar the best card this year!! and the Leben fight was awesome.. i never doubt it would become fight of the year!!

    the only fight that was maybe better was the garcia Zombi fight,

    maann this fight was unbelivable.. how can you be a MMA fan and not vote this fight as ****in FIGHT OF THE YEAR?????

    and i tell you how... the most people want names and maybe they even never watch WEC cause they dont know it!!! its a shame!!!!!!

    Well fighter of the decade could go to either Fedor or Chuck. Fedor for best fighter in performance, epic win streak. But Chuck was more popular in the US and he helped a lot in putting MMA on the radar of a lot of people and afterwards they looked on Youtube etc. and found out about Fedor. But my vote goes to Fedor, performance wise he is the Emperor!

    Chuck Liddel's record in the past 10 years is 17-7 with 6 of those loses getting KO/TKO'd im pretty sure there has to be AT LEAST 1 mma fighter better then that this past decade

    is that the criteria on "Fighter" of the Decade? They should of just named it "Most Influential" of the Decade if thats the case. then it'll be more of popularity contest instead of an actual skill set from a fighter for over 10 years. all im saying is im pretty sure theres more fighters more successful then Chuck Liddell from 2000-2010

    Anderson Silva and Fedor both started their MMA careers in May 2000 and id have to say Silva's resume is better fit for FIghter of the Decade

    how can you put edgar vs penn 2 as fight of the year? edgar fought great but i think that fight of the year should be dramatic and a back and forth war like silva vs sonnen

    Non-US Promotion and MMA Related show are almost by default. I wasn't particularly impressed with Dream overall this year, but I didn't think SRC did better, and KSW and MFC just don't have the relevant fighters to be in the discussion. TUF has also not been sterling, although I think this season 12 has been better than any in some time.
