Over a thousand votes were counted, in a race as tight as the Jiu-Jitsu Worlds.

In the end, the popular vote elected its favorites in seven categories proposed by GRACIEMAG.com. A selection of undisputed gentle art aces who, from here on out, will have another responsibility to shoulder: paying everyone back for their confidence in them.

In the inquiry, what caught attention was the landslide win of featherweight José Aldo Junior as best MMA fighter of the year, and Rafael Mendes as the most consistent fighter of 2010. The other results were neck in neck. Check them out!
