2010 Houston MMA Amateur Awards Nominees

[adrotate banner=”38″]

2010 has been a great year for Houston MMA, so it is with great pleasure that we announce the finalist for our first ever awards, the 2010 Houston MMA Awards, sponsored by Furia Fightwear.  This year there are 4 major categories of awards: Pro Awards, Amateur Awards, Community Awards and Fighter of the year (pro and amateur).

What follows below are the amateur award nominees, sponsored by Clean by Troy Garza. Each fighter that wins in this category will receive a Clean Bloodline T-Shirt and a Clean dog tag.  Nominees for these awards are comprised of all of our live coverage award winners for each show through out the year.

The winners of Fight of the Year, Submission of the Year and Knock Out of the Year will be determined by the combination of an online vote open to everyone and the vote of a 10 member, non-biased media only panel.

The winner of the Rookie of the Year award will be determined by a formula that takes into account fighter activity, wins/losses, opponent rank, titles won, and other factors (the complete formula will be published at the time the award winner is announced).  To be eligible for Rookie of the Year, a fighter must have made his AMATEUR debut in in 2010 (it does not matter if he went pro later).

VOTING BEGINS DECEMBER 26th!
