Also technically NYSAC doesn't allow instant replay, but they kind of do it anyway? Pretty much everyone hosed up.

Big Dan stops the fight due to what he thinks is an illegal knee. He is not allowed or able or something to review the knee on instant replay, but is told by other refs that it was actually legal. Dan tries to give Weidman the rest of his 5 minutes to recover for some reason, and then a doctor stops the fight or something. Weidman loses by TKO.

Herb Dean said pretty much this is what happened and does happen (called a "poll" with other on-site officials), and that usually the refs will defer to the doctors for obvious reasons.

Edit - On topic, KO of the Year suggestion is Bellator 176, Cavalho vs Manhoef.

I don't think a blind person should be a allowed to ref. That's my only guess as to why he didn't stop it.

Whittaker smoking Jacare has to be nominated for something surely. Also that video of the girl nearly dying before the COACH jumped the fence to stop the fight almost made me throw up.

It has the unfortunate blemish of a Dave Branch UFC fight, but rather than second I'll give Alvarez-Poirier Rd 2 a round of the year nomination, even with the clusterfuck of a finish.

Let's throw Gus vs Glover in for some nominations here. Might not win, but we need nominations to make this poo poo function, right?

Yes officer, my name is Victoria Sonnen...berg

Agreed, I think that KO was my second favorite so far this year.

Number 1 is Barboza vs Dariush, which I'm realizing is not on the list so far!

So nominating that from Fight Night 107.

Though I'm biased because he used to train at the same gym as me, I think Damir Hadzovic's KO of Marcin Held from Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Teixiera deserves a nomination just for the sheer novelty of it. Other than Hellboy a decade ago, I don't think I've ever seen an Imanari roll countered like this.

It's a good nomination, too, as it got a POTN bonus, whereas Gus didn't.

Plus if oyu nominate you're now morally obligated to vote at year end.
