Firstly, this list consists of events that I've seen and granted I wasn't able to watch ever major MMA event that happened this year. Especially the Japanese events since Time Warner Cable pulled the plug on my HDNet. Plus a brother wasn't able to purchase every MMA PPV this year either, but luckily we got a bunch of great MMA for free on Versus, Spike, and Showtime. So without further ado my top 5 events are below, but I had trouble picking my top event of 2009 so I included a poll so yall could help a brother out.
- WEC 41: Brown vs. Faber 2-A great main event with several very good fights.
- UFC 95: Sanchez vs. Stevenson-This was the first event that I can recall that we got to see EVERY fight on the card which was 10 fights. This event featured great KO's, a huge upset, great submissions, and a solid main event.
- Strikeforce: Evolution-Granted, I didn't get to watch 100% of this card. What I did get to see was pretty good. The main event featured a great turn of events with what was a good co-main event fight.
- UFC 104: Machida vs. Shogun-We got to see 9 fights overall that featured a very good main event. We got to see good KO's and just overall good competitive fights.
- Affliction: Day Of Reckoning-Well TWC hadn't dropped HDNet at this time, so I was able to watch the prelims there before catching the main event. This event featured great KO's, submissions, and just good fights for the most part.
