Awesome occasions, extraordinary battles, stunning entries, horrible knockouts, and stunning miracles. 2008 had everything, except specific battles and contenders emerge as the highest points of 2008, read on to discover who won what and why. ufc 230 live stream
Occasion of the Year:
UFC 92: The Ultimate 2008. UFC 92 was the best MMA occasion of the year, not simply UFC, but rather around the world. Every one of the 7 battles appeared on the PPV were astounding; it wasn’t only the knockouts and miracles, yet the climate and creation esteem that made this the best occasion of the year. UFC 92 was essentially tremendous.
Decent specify goes to UFC: Fight for the Troops and UFC 80: Rapid Fire. The two occasions included incredible battles and unimaginable thump outs.
Battle of the Year:
In the UFC, there were a considerable measure of extraordinary battles in 2008, however the one battle that emerges in my psyche as battle of the year is Georges “Surge” St. Pierre versus Jon Fitch at UFC 87. This is a closely-held conviction, as an in-your-face GSP fan, watching him put on a 5 round facility on his way to a consistent choice was wonderful.
Noteworthy specify goes to Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture at UFC 91, Forrest Griffin and Quinton Jackson at UFC 86, and Sean Sherk versus Tyson Griffin at UFC 90. I’m certain there are battles that I’m missing, however those are the ones that emerge in my psyche.
Round of the Year:
It’s difficult to recall rounds, however there was one round in the GSP/Fitch battle that I’ll always remember. The third round of the battle was just astonishing. An astounding show of aptitude on GSP’s part, and a moving show of heart on Fitch’s part. Fitch was totally commanded and dropped twice despite everything he continued battling. Watching GSP move was fabulous, he was brisk and exact, maybe he was coasting. While Round One was a standout amongst the most energizing rounds I’ve seen, Round Three was the best round of MMA I found in the UFC in 2008.
Rebound of the Year (in a solitary battle):
The man known for his epic rebounds wins this one easily. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria’s dug out from a deficit accommodation triumph against Tim Sylvia at UFC 81 was what MMA is about. Nogueria was shaken early and frequently by Sylvia and it appeared that Sylvia would punch his way to a consistent choice. Nogueria was harmed terrible ahead of schedule in Round Three yet utilized his splendid Jiu-Jitsu aptitudes to get Sylvia in a guillotine gag.
KO of the year:
There are three KO’s that happened as of late in the UFC that ring a bell for KO of the Year; Rashad Evans on Chuck Liddell at UFC 88, Josh Koscheck on Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFN for the Troops, and Quinton “Frenzy” Jackson on Wanderlei Silva at UFC 92.
Every one of them merit the respect, yet I need to pick one and I’m running with Koscheck on Yoshida. While the other two were stunning and horrible, the Koscheck KO is basically two KO’s at the cost of one. Koscheck KOed Yoshida and he fell back against the enclosure, he hit the confine, skiped forward and Koscheck gave him one more for good fortunes sending him colliding with the canvas as the ref ventured in to stop the battle.
Accommodation of the year:
We saw a considerable measure of extraordinary entries in the UFC this year, however one that truly stands out in my brain is Dustin Hazelett’s flying armbar on Josh Burkman at The Ultimate Fighter 7 finale, it was a wondrous thing.
Fair specify goes to C.B. Dollaway’s Peruvian bowtie on Jesse Taylor at Silva versus Irvin, Rousimar Palhares’ smooth armbar on Ivan Salaverry at UFC 84, and Anderson Silva’s back stripped stifle prevail upon Dan Henderson at UFC 82.
Bombshell of the year:
The time of the miracle is finished, yet 2008 highlighted a few stunning surprises. Rashad Evans over Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin over Quinton Jackson, Frank Mir over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, and endless others.
Be that as it may, the greatest bombshell for me was seeing Rob Emerson (truly, that Rob Emerson) thump Manny Gamburyan senseless at UFC 87. Not exclusively was it an enormous surprise considering the achievement Manny had on TUF contrasted with the achievement Emerson had on TUF, yet it was essentially the best 12 seconds I’ve ever observed.
Most enhanced Fighter:
There’s no opposition here, Kenny Florian is the most enhanced contender of 2008. Kenny went 3-0 out of 2007, he additionally went 3-0 of every 2008. How might he be viewed as the “most enhanced warrior of 2008” at that point? There was a gigantic bounce in rivalry and a monstrous jump in ability appeared by Florian in 2008. He discarded Joe Lauzon easily at UFN 13, he dominated Roger Huerta at UFC 87, and he totally annihilated Joe Stevenson in the first round at UFC 91. Kenny Florian has gone from mid-carder to main event in simply under a year.
