Fighters Only Magazine held their World Mixed Martial Arts Awards 2009 Wednesday night at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. Many of the stars of the MMA world were there, including Dana White, Tito Ortiz, Georges St. Pierre, and Diego Sanchez, among others.

A few highlights included the awkwardness of having Dan Henderson and Natasha Wix on stage presenting awards just moments after UFC President Dana White had been up there, Diego Sanchez’s seemingly inebriated thank-you speech, and Holly Madison’s X-Burlesque dancers performance.
