Not sure if it would be performance of the year or honorable mention FOTY, but MIZUKI vs Lacey Shuckman from Invicta 15 was

Actually, as an event, minus the ambulance delay, Invicta 15 was pretty cool across the board

Though, really, in retrospect, a tall, highly experienced and accomplished fighter who's spent his long career in the two best divisions in the sport subbing a Featherweight shouldn't be that much of an upset.

The Big Dan/Lil Kim Award for Refereeing Incompetence

Mark Smith at Invicta FC 16: Jennifer Maia and Vanessa Porto, flyweight title fight, round 4. In a back-and-forth battle, Smith stands up Jennifer Maia and Vanessa Porto from a deep grappling entanglement in which Maia had an armbar locked and Porto was stalling to delay the extension - so that he could have the doctor check on Porto's bleeding nose. He then restarts the fight standing. Incidentally he let Porto ride out the last two minutes of the fight doing basically nothing in Maia's full guard.

Smith's action not made less bad by the fact that Maia ended up getting the decision in a close fight.

e. actual ref's name put in.

It won't win because he didn't actually get his way, but the ref trying to override the doctor's opinion that an obviously blinded Curtis Blaydes should continue to fight because his corner said he was good should get a nod for ref gaffe of 2016 at UFC Fight Night Zagreb
