Are they still calling this the "World" MMA awards?

World MMA Awards just did the impossible, they got even more Lame.. their barely the north american MMA awards

Where do you vote? I think leben vs akiyama should be FOTY. I was there live and rooting for leben and the place went insane when Akiyama tapped. Great moment for sure Phone Post

Hey we got some Aussies in there!

Very flattered and honoured to have been nominated in the LEADING MAN category... and still very shocked.

Also congrats to George on his two nominations, he has done so well in UFC and all us Aussies are proud of him.

Thanks again to all those who nominated me... and all who are voting.

I'm really honoured.

My picks.

JDSFTW - I was there as well, and I haven't experienced that much energy and excitement in one place since GSP vs Penn II. It was amazing. Phone Post

Forgive me for a stupid question, as I can't see a post count or join date from my phone but no way that's actually Schiavello posting, correct? Phone Post

Lock in leben and sexy for FOTY.

And war George for breakthrough fighter! Phone Post

How funny... reading your post and listening to you from last nights K-1, at the same time.. lol

 

How did I not make the KO of the year list for doing what WEC's Torres couldn't by turning maed into a statue in under 3 min

all the clothing brands they picked suck...yeah they still suck Phone Post

you accidentally left the actual best fight of the year off the finalists list (Hominick-Jabouin from WEC)

 Diaz and Werdum better win something, or fuck this shit. 

 and what the fuck about HITMAN FIGHT GEAR???
