Performance of the Year: Kevin Lee, Fight Night Atlantic City, 21st April.

He timed almost all of Barboza's kicks and knees, and crushed him on the ground. If the doctor didn't stop the fight, it probably would have been 49-43 or 49-42. I saw some media scores that gave Lee the 2nd round 10-7.

Sadly he has no chance of winning because what people will remember is the stank legs.

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

I remember Barboza taking an even worse beating than Khabib gave him so nah, dawg.

Comeback of the year Jack Hermansson vs Thales Leites, UFC 224.

Hermansson has his rib explode early in round 2 and has a legit BJJ player on top of him until the bell, surviving several deep submission attempts. Round 3 he comes out hard, survives a locked-in anaconda choke, and manages to get mount and a TKO by strikes.

Feel like there's been some stuff to nominate in recent weeks, so here we go:

Knockout of the Year

Lyoto Machida (front kick) vs Vitor Belfort, UFC 224

Jose Torres (Slam) vs Jarred Brooks, UFC Fight Night 131

Marlon Moraes (head kick) vs Jimmie Rivera, UFC Fight Night 131

Cornering incompetence:

Raquel Pennington tells her team she's done at the end of r4. They tell her to go out anyway for round 5, which saw her get stopped very quickly - UFC 224

Jimmy Smith's dedication to being wrong really annoyed me with that KO. He goes on and on about the front leg tricking Belfort while Machida obviously feints then kicks with his rear leg.

I can't remember the last time I saw someone's face go BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD as fast as Overeem's did. Every elbow landed in the exact same spot on his forehead and opened the cut wider and wider. 50k well earned for Blaydes.

I legitimately thought I had looked at my phone or something for a minute and missed about 20 strikes but no, it happened that fast.

UFC 222 at least had a cool Brian Ortega KO, Sean O'Malley winning with a broken leg, and C.B. Dolloway's victory chariot. There's one fight left and the only cool thing that happened so far is a guy without a Wikipedia page getting a sudden triangle sub.
