It's not bullshit, it just became a meme on this website because people would respond to any video or gif of someone falling down with "they totally got a concussion there, look at the classic fencing response"

Not just this website, fight sports commentary, football commentary, etc. People latched onto it as a thing to make themselves sound smart in the last few years.

You know how to do your job, but I want to float the idea of reducing the number of awards. I was able to get it down to 11. A shorter core ballot could increase participation:

KO
Sub
Fight
Performance
Round
Fighter
Breakout
Comedy
Bad officials (refs + judges)
Event
Goon Favourites

You need haters. Fellas if you got 20 haters, you need 40 of them motherfuckers. If there's any haters in here that don't have nobody to hate on, feel free to hate on me

Worst Fight of the Year/Biggest Disappointment: Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou at UFC 220.

I knew going in that Ngannou probably needed to KO Stipe to win but I didn't expect his takedown to be so awful, and while it was nice of Stipe to not finish him off even though he could have at any point in the last three rounds, it made for a sad spectacle to see Ngannou just lie there desperately trying to breathe. At one point Stipe literally stood up, turned around and got back on Ngannou who didn't move at all the entire time.
