Default So half way throught the year...

Has it been a vintage year in MMA so far? Thought it may be fun to get your guys opinions as how the year is panning out so far, just as a change of pace. Will do another one in December if this thread takes off.

So what's your opinions on...
Fighter of the year?

Fight of the Year?

Ko' of the Year

Sub of the year

Biggest Upset

Biggest disapointment

Best event

Break out/most improved fighter of the year

And just for a bit of forum banter

Best/Worst poster?

Best/Worst Thread?

Best/Worst post?

Funniest post?

Most idiotic post?

And any other topics Ive left out I will add. Hopefully get a nice summary of how 2011 has gone so far, or be an epic fail as people cant be bothered.

Fighter of the year?
Jon Jones - ended Bader's unbeaten streak and demolished Shogun in two breathtaking displays.

Fight of the Year?
Hmmmmm Diaz vs Daley or Edgar vs Maynard

Ko' of the Year
ANDERSON SILVA vs Vitor Belfort

Sub of the year
PABLO GARZA vs Yves Jabouin

Biggest Upset
Hasn't really been one - Shields taking two rounds off St. Pierre probably (although tbh I thought that was a bad call)

Biggest disappointment
UFC's injury crisis - all but one show (UFC 129) has lost either their main event or co-main event. Its incredible they haven't had to cancel shows to be honest.

Best event
UFC 129 up until the third round of the main event

Break out/most improved fighter of the year
Brian Stann

See I really didn't expect much from GSP vs Shields going in so I wasn't disappointed. Indeed first two rounds were MUCH better than I thought they were going to be.

Bah, personnaly I don't thinik monopoly is a good thing. It was for sell, they bought it, business deal I understand that. But it will only suck more for the fighter.

Best move of DW and props to him for that, is the medical insurance for all the fighter. But IMO that coming kinda late, but at least they have it now.

I still find it amazing that people think it's ok for any cunt to bash on someone just because they don't want to make business with them.
