The closer the date of a battle, the more predictions about its outcome. Everyone tries to predict the outcome of the fight - experts, journalists, bookmakers and fans.
But sport is sport: sometimes even the obvious favorite loses. Such unexpected results always give rise to great interest. Exactly for this unpredictability we love MMA!
In 2016, there were many battles that surprised us. According to the jury of the World MMA Awards 2017, the list of nominees for the "Upset of the Year" nomination was as follows: Michael Bisping vs. Luke Rockhold (UFC 199), Bryan Barberena vs. Warlley Alves (UFC on FOX 18), Joe Taimanglo vs. Darrion Caldwell Bellator 159), Brandon Moreno against Louis Smolka (UFC Fight Night 96) and Zach Riley against Hugo Viana (RFA 34).
The silver statuette was awarded to Michael Bisping.
