While we wait for the Best & Worst of 2021 thread, I want to note these things from today's event:

Performance of the Year - Max Holloway vs Calvin Kattar

Insult/Trash Talk of the Year - Max Holloway saying "oh, I'm a freshman?" (referencing Kattar saing that he's a senior when it comes to boxing and Max is a freshman), in the 5th round while dodging punches

Could make an argument for Joaquin Buckley to be overhyped underperforming for losing by KO to a guy on a three fight losing skid, but ehhh

Upset of the Year

UFC 258 Anthony Hernandez def. Rodolfo Vieira Submission (guillotine choke)

Note that Hernandez is a random dude who has a purple belt and Vieira was an undefeated MMA fighter and former ADCC champion. This result was a -3000 line!
