Thank you, Toronto!

Rousey vs. Carmouche was short, but it was exciting all the way through. A definite FOTY candidate.

FOTY: Ronda v Carmouche

It needs to be on here as a FOTY - the problem is it's slightly overshadowed because Bermudez-Grice was better but that shouldn't take anything away from it. As a repository it won't beat Bermudez-Grice but its a FOTY itself. IT definitely is a fight to be looked back on as the year goes on.

Edit: clarifying position

Ronda is going to be seen as the Joe Louis of WMMA in fifty years if everything goes well, and she had the perfect fight to make the world take notice of her. It won't be fight of the year, but it will probably be fight of the decade.

realtalk: Corrales v Castillo is probably my favorite fight of all time, but it had no larger implications. It was a slugfest between a couple of brawlers done good, but without the title impact of a Barrera-Morales trilogy or Hagler-Hearns or the historical impact of Louis-Schmeling II it's faded with time.

It was pretty good but it was only really exciting because of the context. I don't really think it was FOTY material though it deserves some kind of mention.

Let's amend this to 95% of UFC on Fuel 8's judging.

Maybe we should start a listing for Card of the Year and Worst Card of the Year too. Nominee for COTY so far is UFC 157. UFC on Fuel 8 is approaching WCOTY status and is only being saved by the fights involving Fitchings.
