This past year was yet another really good one for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. The UFC introduced the women’s bantamweight division, Champions fell while stars began to rise and promotions like, Bellator, Invicta FC, WSOF and the XFC continued to grow.
Well yet another year has come and gone, 2012 was an odd year for MMA but the year will not easily be forgotten. This year saw the UFC all over network TV, Bellator stumble its way into next year and smaller promotions like RFA, LFC and XFC make a name for themselves. Unfortunately it also saw Strikeforce take a nosedive and the UFC cancel an event for the first time.
It’s that time of the year, the time when everyone comes out with their “year end” awards. Maximum Fighting Championship has done this for several years and the Canadian promotion has expanded their awards to include Knockouts, Submissions and Fights of the Year, plus they’ve added a handful of one-off awards.
