Year End Awards: 2009's Most Exciting MMA Fights

New, 11 comments

You may recall that we did  the top ten fights of 2009 at the halfway point in June of this year.  We've endured another 6 months of epic battles, title fights, and more.  Here's the list from June:

  • Martin Kampmann vs. Carlos Condit, UFN 18   
  • Miguel Torres vs. Takeya Mizugaki, WEC 40
  • Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida, UFC TUF 9 Finale
  • Hideo Tokoro vs. Abe Cullum, DREAM.9
  • Mike Brown vs. Urijah Faber II, WEC 41
  • Scott Jorgensen vs. Antonio Banuelos, WEC 41
  • Donald Cerrone vs. Jamie Varner, WEC 38
  • Mac Danzig vs. Josh Neer, UFN 17
  • Fedor Emelianenko vs. Andrei Arlovski, Affliction 2
  • Tyson Griffin vs. Rafael Dos Anjos, UFN 18
  • Check after the jump to see who stayed on the list, and who got added in the past six months.

    I feel like I've watched more MMA this year than any other year of my life.  There were a lot of GREAT fights, and I know I missed a few.  In fact, I can't put Thomson/Melendez on this list because I only saw about 10% of that entire fight.  So without further ado...here it is:

    • Martin Kampmann vs. Carlos Condit, UFN 18
    • Miguel Torres vs. Takeya Mizugaki, WEC 40
    • Scott Jorgensen vs. Antonio Banuelos, WEC 41
    • Hideo Tokoro vs. Abe Cullum, DREAM 9
    • Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, UFC 102
    • Nate Quarry vs. Tim Credeur, UFN 19
    • Cyborg Santos vs. Gina Carano, Strikeforce
    • Carlos Condit vs. Jake Ellenberger, UFN 19
    • Mike Nickels vs. David Heath, MFC 22
    • Shogun Rua vs. Lyoto Machida, UFC 104
