Some familiar UFC names have been nominated for an ESPN ESPY award. For ‘Best Fighter,’ UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones are two of the five candidates.
The other three fighters vying for the title are Canelo Alvarez, Danny Garcia and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Silva and Jones have been nominated three times before, with Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao always winning.
In less than two weeks, Silva defends his belt against Chris Wiedman. Jones is expected to face Alexander Gustafsson in September.
