Here’s a look at some votes from Team Hayabusa for the World MMA Awards 2014;
Charles 'Mask' Lewis Fighter of the Year
Why?: The reigning champion had an incredible 2013 inside the octagon. He defended his heavyweight title twice, defeating both Antonio Silva and Junior dos Santos via TKO.
Knockout Of The Year
Chris Weidman (vs. Anderson Silva, UFC 162)
Why?: Weidman became the first fighter in UFC history to knockout Silva and take the belt from the long-running champion.
Comeback Of The Year
Why?: He returned to the UFC after an inconsistent run in Strikeforce, only to win three consecutive bouts and earned himself a title shot against Johny Hendricks after an impressive win over Rory MacDonald.
Fight of the Year
Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez (UFC 166)
Why?: These warriors gave MMA fans exactly what they wanted at UFC 166, an intense lightweight throw down. The brawl ultimately went to decision, with judges giving Gilbert Melendez the unanimous victory but both fighters left a winner.
