2018 Untitled MMA Awards

It’s that time of the year again. The part where the one ends and then another one starts, and then we post the awards for the one that ended just a couple days too late because we procrastinated. It’s a tradition unlike any other.  

For the third time in our illustrious history, we’ll make our selections for the best of the best in MMA for The Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Eighteen. From the best fights & fighters to the weirdest moment of the weird moments, we’ve made our picks.

Check out previous year’s selections:
