For those big on Jiu-Jitsu, Fabrício Werdum took best submissio honors for the slick double attack that toppled the “Last Emperor”, Fedor Emelianenko. Now if knockouts are what get you going, that title went to Maurício Shogun for his light heavyweight-title-winning knockout of Lyoto Machida.

Another important award, best fight went to Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen for the fight the Brazilian won in the eleventh hour with an armbar from the triangle.

Now best team went to Wanderlei Silva’s Wand Fight Team. The best event, as one would imagine, went to the UFC, and Dana White, the promotions president, won for best leader.
