Might as well nominate Hector Lombard for an eggregious late strike KO/DQ vs CB Dolloway at UFC 222 as the Foul of the Year

because it created great results, not because it was the most eggregious, namely an unconscious CB dolloway, a DQed and crying Hector Lombard, and this picture:



Like, that's a loving quality foul.

I don't want Tony Ferguson injuring himself by wearing sunglasses indoors to be forgotten in all of this.

Not sure for the category, it'd fit many and win none considering this week none but for posterity's sake.
