2017 Awards: Upsets of the Year

31 Dec , 2017,

Note: We have two ways that we derive biggest “upsets” based on points difference between winner and loser.

“Most Noteworthy” (X minus Y)
“Most Lopsided” (X divided by Y)


Most Noteworthy: Francis Ngannou KO(1) Alistair Overeem

More of a guard change than an upset.  Nevertheless, Ngannou made up a massive point difference in taking Overeem out.


Most Lopsided: Volkan Oezdemir SD(3) Ovince St. Preux

Were the actual outcome a part of this, Emmett/Lamas would get the award.  However, this is about proportional point differences and Oezdemir wasn’t even on the map before this fight.
