Monthly Awards: March 2019
So far we have kept our promise of doing Monthly Awards every month, so here are March’s nominees by the Untitled MMA crew.
Fight/Performance of the Month - Ben Askren vs. Robbie Lawler, UFC 235
Although this fight did not get the ending it deserved, it was a wild ride while it lasted. A possible POTM could go to Michelle Waterson in her dominant win over the weekend.
KO of the Month - Anthony Pettis vs Stephen Thompson, UFC Nashville
This was a surreal moment for us at Untitled MMA. Anthony Pettis is Brenden’s favorite fighter, we saw him live, and Pettis made a STATEMENT to the Welterweight division. Great stuff. This was the hardest one to award, with a TON of great knockouts this month. If you want more, check out Till vs Masvidal, Walker vs Cirukov, Munhoz vs Garbrandt, or Emmet vs Johnson, just to name a few.
Submission of the Month - Randa Markos vs Angela Hill, UFC Nashville
I guess there was bad blood between Markos and Hill dating back to TUF, and Markos went in and gave hill a whooping, ending it with the submission you see above. While it was not the most impressive looking sub, those were hard to come by in March.
Yoel Romero Award for MMA Weirdness - Bryce Mitchell’s Post-Fight Interview, UFC Nashville
We were here live for this one. We couldn’t understand a word of what he said, but the crowd ate it up. He covers: Arkansas, camo shorts, cow feces in his driveway, and Arkansas again. Wild stuff from the FOTN winner at UFC Nashville. Also, this is the SAME GUY that tore his scrotum because of a power drill incident. Never change, Thug Nasty.
