McGregor, Holm, And Lawler All Nominated For ESPYs
The nominees for the annual Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Awards (ESPYs) have been revealed and it looks like three of Ultimate Fighting Championship’s finest will be representing the company at the award show.
Conor McGregor, Robbie Lawler, and Holly Holm have all been nominated! McGregor is up for “Best Breakthrough Athlete” along side Jake Arrieta, Chloe Kim, and Karl-Anthony Towns. McGregor and Robbie Lawler are both set to duke it out for the right to become the “Best Fighter” along with other scrappy nominees Gennady Golovkin, Canelo Alvarez, and Roman Gonzalez.
Holm, like McGregor, is up for two awards with the first being “Best Upset”. She will have some tough competition ahead of her, however, as Middle Tennessee’s win over Michigan State in the March Madness tournament is up for the award as well. Holm is also featured in a tournament for “Best Play” which will be decided by the fans in a bracket-style elimination voting tournament. Holm’s knockout win over Rousey rivals Bartolo Colon’s first home run.
