He Suplexed Bader, Made Shogun tap to strikes, First person to finished Rampage in the UFC, and Choked out a DRAGON.

Not even a bones fan really, but he deserves it. I always bet on him though, no one can stop him.

And Floyd will accept the award via satellite from his prison cell.

The Espy's never give the award to MMA fighters.

ONE FC has a broadcast deal with an ESPN affiliate now. Someday we may see that rule broken.

If nothing else, I think it's pretty cool to see mma fighters in the mix regularly these days.
