    This is just one of those rare occurances where the people speak out loudly enough and others are forced to listen......Obviously the crypt members thought strongly enough about me being the "Crypter of the year".......

    Good set of awards there, good to see Ronda pick up one of our awards.....she deserves it for the stuff she has done for Womens MMA this year.

    Also good to see one of the smaller cards of the year pick up Event of the Year, great event it was too, although I voted for 153!!!!

    ......and finally, Py nailed it, Kickass, you made it completely impossible to vote for anyone else.....quite literally!!!!

    No, I can see why each of them could be the choice even if it were not my choice......well other than 1 category and I'm sure we all know which one that is!

    I'm surprised at Fitch v. Silva for fight of the year tbh.

    i'm all for a good grappling match but Silva is not in the same class as Fitch. Silva won the first half of the first round and then was dominated by Fitch (who looked great in this fight).

    Tapology (whoever they are) had this fight at #13 for the year which is a little low but more in line with my opinion.

    Zombie v. Poirier was my favorite...
