Fighters Only 2011 World MMA Awards Tonight

The Finalists for the Fighters Only 2011 World MMA Awards were officially revealed. The event will be held on November 30th. The function is ready to delve into its fourth consecutive year of celebrations on Wednesday at the Pearl Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
