Mid Year Awards: 10 Best MMA Fights Of 2009

New, 10 comments

We are just over halfway thru 2009 and have been treated to some of the best MMA fights we ever seen.  We've seen back and forth battles, guys getting whipped on and coming back to win, nasty KO's, and slick submissions.  We'll be touching on all of those subjects later, but just wanted to highlight some of the best fights of the year thus far in 2009.  In no particular order:

  • 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

No surprise in that most of the best fights are from the smaller lightweights.  What say you, and are there any that I may have missed?
