With the season of the Fight of the Year fast approaching, it’s time for the winners of our annual BongShow competition.
The show that has fans clamouring for a rematch and the best fights of 2016 were all in the same category.
Benson Henderson and Luke Rockhold’s first meeting in the UFC was the best ever in the company, and the first bout between two of the sport’s best fighters was also the best one to date.
However, while Rockhold was able to keep the win, it was Henderson who took the crown, with a first-round submission victory.
Boyd Mayweather Jr., Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao were the other fighters to win, but they were not the best of the season, with each one of them putting in one of the worst performances of the entire year.
The final fight was between Josh Barnett and Rafael dos Anjos, but this was a close one, and dos Anajos was able avenge a controversial loss by KOing the Brazilian.
A year ago, Barnett was a fighter who was known to have some trouble scoring takedowns, but the Brazilian managed to score the takedown in the third round, giving Barnett a first round TKO.
In his last fight with dos Anjaos, Barnett made it look easy on himself by dropping dos Anjoos with a few strikes in the first round.
The Brazilian was not the most dangerous of opponents, but he was definitely a threat and did not give Barnett any trouble, even though Barnett’s guard was up for the fight.
The most entertaining fight of 2016 was the rematch between Demian Maia and John Dodson.
Dodson dominated Maia in the second round of the fight, but Maia went on to win via unanimous decision.
Maia was the biggest surprise of the weekend, and he showed why in his first fight with UFC president Dana White.
White was a fan of the Brazilian, and in the last year, he has been putting together a huge training camp for Maia, who had been training in the US since 2013.
The two were fighting for the first time, and it was Maia who got the better of White in the fourth round, before the Brazilian was able do the same in the fifth.
This was a fight where Maia had the upper hand early, but White was not worried about the fight and started throwing in some strikes to try and put Dodson down.
Dodmana, on the other hand, got the upper body hold on Maia before he was able get back up, but that didn’t stop White from trying to put the Brazilian away with a rear naked choke.
The best fight from the year came from the top of the division, with the title shot of Conor McGregor against Nate Diaz taking place in front of a live audience at Madison Square Garden.
This was a perfect situation for McGregor to make the title fight, as he had already been booked to fight in the main event of UFC 189.
However the fight started to go south for McGregor, as Diaz knocked him out in the sixth round.
This led to some speculation about whether McGregor would retire at the end of the month.
This is the best McGregor fight of all time, but it didn’t end up happening, and McGregor was able win the title on his home turf by knockout.
It was also McGregor’s first UFC fight since 2015, and as such it was the most anticipated fight of his career.
The winner of this fight was also a winner of the BongFight of the Week, which is awarded to the fighter who best demonstrates a strong showing in all three phases of the show, including the fight itself.
This is the BONGFight of 2015.
The other big winner of BongCon was the season’s top fighter, Josh Barnett.
In a fight that was supposed to be a showdown between two greats, Barnett put on a performance that proved to be his best in the fight of any year.
The UFC star took a brutal beating from Diaz before finally landing the knockout, ending the fight with a devastating left hand.
This fight was the first of two that Barnett had in 2016, but Barnett is a different fighter now than he was a year ago.
The only reason he is able to put on such a show is because he has improved massively in terms of conditioning and nutrition.
It is this that gives Barnett the edge over Diaz.
