2016 was a year for the UFC record books.

All of the year’s biggest stories outside of the Octagon have already been covered at length, including the unprecedented numbers put up by one Conor McGregor.

What follows are Forbes' 2016 UFC awards for best fighter, breakthrough fighter, fight, knockout, submission and fight card, complete with honorable mentions.
