BluegrassMMA 2013 Awards

We had an overwhelming response to this year’s BluegrassMMA awards. Since the polls opened up on January 2nd we have recorded over 7,500 votes. When we asked you, the fans, to vote we did not anticipate such a large turnout.

2013 was a great year for MMA in the Ohio Valley region, many fighters made their debut and even more put on great performances for us to watch. It wasn’t easy narrowing down the nominees but we felt we had good representation of what we witnessed in 2013.
