Congrats to Ariel BY FAR the best MMA reporter, thank god Gareth A Davies didnt get it. Arianny got "Ring Girl of the Year"?.....AGAIN?. I thought Britnney Palmer had it in the bag, she's much hotter and has a personality.

The KO of the year should have gone to The Dragon! Everything else seems OK to me.

NO WAY. Silva's FRONT FACE KO is a 1 in a 1,000,000,000,000

Zaromskis easily should get KO of the year.

NOTE TO SITE: I had to manually type that in and needless to say.. it's annoying. Did you guys disable the ability to copy/paste within a new comment??

Hell, I'd even give it to Story since it was a one punch KO. That **** had me afraid for Edwards' future!

Congrats Ariel -- you deserve it for your Rampage interviews and your amusing geek chic fashion choices.

One thing I know we can probably all agree on is that Arianny deserves the win

How many UFC Championships has Chael won? ZERO. How many UFC title defenses does Chael have? ZERO. How many WEC Championships did Chael win? ZERO. How many BELTS has Chael won (IN ANY MMA FIGHT LEAGUE OR PROMO) ? ZERO. So all you Chael fans are ZEROES for following such a big large ZERO.

mr. "HOW MANY PRO FIGHTS HAVE YOU WON" HAHAHAHA hey, dumbass, in case you didn't realize there's this title called "fan." This is why you support Chael- because you don't know what 'fan' actually means. Fans have opinions, biases, and undying support. You, Grizzly, are just a ball licker.
