2008, as far as competition goes, was a great year for MMA. Some of the old guard was forced to step aside as the next generation of talented fighters made their mark. Out of all the action, some fighters and fights were more memorable and significant for various reasons. We have tried to recognize those special moments and fighters from the past year.
These are the official 2008 PRO MMA AWARDS as voted on by the staff here at PRO MMA (http://promma.info). Do you agree or disagree with our picks? Let us know. Maybe we overlooked or forgot something.
