MMA Awards show: would it sell?

I've been bantering with Josh Gross on twitter a bit today, after throwing a tweet out to Dana White, Joe Rogan, Josh Gross, Ariel Helwani, and Showdown Joe, asking about whether there have been any talks about Zuffa doing an MMA awards show.

Ideally it would be something the media would do across all MMA promotions, giving recognition to all fighters, but I think Zuffa could put together an excellent evening of television every year if they wanted to.

Imagine an awards show, with Joe Rogan hosting, and the following:

- Clips of nominees for FOTY presented by Forrest Griffin and Stephen Bonnar.
- Sub OTY presented by Royce Gracie and Eddie Bravo.
- KO OTY presented by Chuck Liddell.
- Takedown OTY presented by Matt Hughes.
- Evan Tanner Memorial award for sportsmanship, or perseverance, etc.
- Perhaps a Charles "Mask" Lewis award to builders of MMA.
- "Tito Ortiz" award for antagonist/hype OTY presented by Tito Ortiz (Chael '10! haha).
- Coach OTY
- Ring Girl OTY
- Comeback OTY

the list goes on and on. I think it would be a ratings gold mine.

Also, it might be fun to make award categories and vote on them every year in polls, for the HFBoards Awards. I'll try to remember to set this up later in the year, and create threads so people can submit nominations.

I'm not a fan of awards shows at all, I'd never watch it. I like discussion on things like FOTY on message boards and radio shows, but the actual awards show I can definately do without.

Time Warner really needs to get HDNet here... So annoying never being able to watch the quality MMA programming on there.

You mean to tell me you don't even get to see Minowaman when he does fight? Shame.
