there will be other fights that have additional intangibles like 'significance' but it really was a wicked sick fight between two dudes known for having wicked sick fights.

This both should go on the poll and not because absolutely no one thinks this was a bad action.

Agreed. As much as Browne sucks, I was glad to see him standing for the announcement. I'm still going to worry that he'll fall asleep backstage and never wake up after that. Even if you hate Browne, you need to acknowledge that if he dies as a result of a fight, there will be tons of Travis Browne tributes for months.

Bad refereeing. Sadly not even the worst this year.
