    No doubt these guys have great subs on their records. However, for me, the fact that they are pulled off against lower level opponents makes it harder to pick them as a sub / KO of the year in a combined pro / semi category.

    Would have preferred them to be separate.

    -Fighter of the Year - Turner. No. 3 in such a stacked division is an immense achievement.
    -Breakthrough Fighter of the Year - Hyslop
    -Semi Pro Fighter of the Year - Mcintosh/Posslethwaite
    -Fight of the Year - Ray vs Ward SFC4 or Hope vs N'Doye for the grit shown alone. Was also YourMMA euro FOTMonth
    -KO of the Year - Ray over Quinn for the implications i.e. ranking in top 20. Or any of Whitefords KO's.
    -Sub of the Year - Doolan. Nice to see him back to winning ways over a good opponent. Delaney at Sportfight was good sub too.
    -Performance of the Year - Malone over Stevenson, Reed over Corasanni or Caldwell over Fletcher.
    -Ring Entrance of the Year - Hunter SFC
    -Promotion of the Year - On Top. Quality cards at the top level. Putting on a full card of pro fights at that level is great for a Scottish MMA promotion.
    -Event of the Year - SFC 4/5
    -Fight Team of the Year - Can't see anyone but the Ninjas getting this. Regardless of the numbers of wins/losses as a team, no other team can stake a claim when this team are consistently fighting levels above the rest. Edge seem to be producing some good fighters. I've always been a fan of the Viper team too.
    -Coach of the Year - Can't really assess this one.
    I would ban the triangle choke, the refuge of cowards everywhere.

    Nominations for this would be great, whether public or private. At the moment, it's just going to be an open vote without any shortlist.

    Great news. It gives me an outlet for my passive aggressive streak - the musings of Divvy and Stefanny on a fortnightly basis!

    Breakthrough fighter of the year - Hissy, undefeated at pro beating some good guys along the way
    Semi-pro fighter of the year - Iain Possilwhaite - wee guy has looked awesome in every fight I've seen him in

    KO of the year - Alan McAuley @ SFC
    Sub of the year - Iain Possilwhaite's armbar on Gary Priestly at Hostile Territory, beautifully set up and thought he was going to take the arm home with him
    Performance of the year - Dean Caldwell beating Colin Fletcher, a lot of people thought this would be an easy fight for Fletcher, those who've seen Dean and the fighters he produces kind of knew better
    Ring Entrance - Hillhouse at SFC with the chainsaw

    Fight team of the year - DNFT
    Coach of the year - Paul McVeigh/James Doolan, can't seperate the guys, both still competing at the highest levels of the sport and still continues to churn out killers from the Griphouse and Lanark MMA respectively
    Scotlands No. 1 Timekeeper also available as a BJJ/No Gi referee
