  1. How is Fedor the HW of the year? He didn’t defend his belt, and fought an aged, unranked Mark Coleman. Can’t really count the Hunt fight, since it was on NYE, but even if you do include it, there is absolutely no way in hell that Fedor had even a “good” year. Tim Sylvia ought to be HW of the year, he had a better year than Fedor.

  2. wow, good to see Chuck Liddell the light heavyweight of the year
