An unsung hero is a person who makes a substantive, yet somewhat unrecognized contribution.
An unsung hero in MMA terms is a fighter or promoter that goes above and beyond the call, yet doesn't receive the amount of credit that he or she deserves. You better believe 2012 was filled with many of them.
Immediately you start to think of UFC matchmaker Joe Silva or Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez. These men embody those characteristics
But who else embodied those attributes in 2012? Who were MMA's top unsung heroes?
