The 12th Fighters Only World MMA Awards Show was held last night at Network. If you miss it, I won’t blame you. CBS-SN is pretty high and usually loses prizes in July, so unless you’re paying too much attention to the internet to escape your family’s Christmas responsibilities, it might have been flying under radar for you. not.
But that happened. Dolph Lundgren was giving out awards based on votes from the MMA community. As we mentioned, the show usually goes down in the summer, but COVID-19 did it and delayed things … you know the drill.
Therefore, do not consider this as the 2020 Fighters Only World MMA Award as much as the 2020 Fighters Only World MMA Awards from January 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. This explains why a dusty event like Jorge Masvidal’s Ben Askren’s KO won the KO of the Year. Alternatively, Ben Askren’s Demian Maia sub won the Submission of the Year.
Ben Askren feels award-winning for being on the award-winning side of a number of award-winning finishes.
