Jones, Silva nominated for 'Fighter of the Year' ESPY

source: espn.com
 

Nominees for "Best Fighter" include

-UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones
-UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva
-WBA Junior Middleweight and WBC Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
-Reigning WBA and WBC Super-Middleweight Champion Andre Ward

Not surprisingly, pugilistic powerhouse Manny Pacquiao took home last year's top prize. Will his exclusion in 2012 (see Bradley, Tim) be the edge "Bones" or "The Spider" need to pull this one out?

JBJ is clearly the winner, but Floyd will end up getting the public's vote. Floyd is the giant name, and barely anyone likes Jon Jones.

It's not even a contest. It's not even a conversation to be taken seriously... JJ has been on a tare that few fighters in any combat sport have ever come close to matching. Prime Tyson maybe?

If its a fan vote than I retract my previous statement. If JBJ doesn't get it it will show just how out of touch the public is on MMA

If JBJ doesn't get it, it will just go to show how out of touch the media is with MMA.

 You guys do realize it's a fan vote not an award that espn picks the winners.  All winners are fan vote: http://espn.go.com/espys/voting?vote=8083189&lang=en

I hate to say this, but none of them deserve it.Randy Couture should have been the first mma fighter to win the award.ESPY's are corrupt as hell anyways.
