Despite being ranked as the fourteenth seed going into the ESPY voting, Edson Barboza's wheel kick knock out of Terry Etim is in the final four. Mixed Martial Arts has long clamored for main stream acceptance and having the sport represented in the top four of the best plays of the year is quite the accomplishment.

The impressive kick came back in January in the third round of what was a back and forth battle between lightweights Terry Etim and Edson Barboza. Barboza, who has some capoiera training, threw a spinning heel hook and Etim put his hands just a little low, resulting in the highlight worthy KO.

The remaining plays up for the nomination all come from college sports: baseball, football, and basketball.

Maybe with the help of MMA fans across the globe, we can vote MMA into it's first ESPY win.

Yea that punt return was amazing but it was in a college game.... If it was in the nfl I might be more impressed.

Barboza's kick was awesome but gotta be fair, that catch and punt return were more impressive.

If barboza would of beat Varner and won this award he would of no doubt got a top 5 guy. Yes I'm very biased cause barboza is one of my favorite fighters, really want 2 see him fight Diaz,cowboy or pettis. Phone Post

duckhuntgangsta -  Barboza won't win but I see this as a peice offering from ESPN. Barboza was up against a golfer and a snow mobile for the opening rounds. That's pretty kind.
I thought Dana gave an interview to espn the other day as well but I could be mistaken.

And that golf shot may have been my favorite out of all of them lol. Phone Post

You think if Sky Sports ran something similar it would feature much baseball or hand-egg?

Edson is going to win this! Was tougher then it is now. All the other plays are nice, but they are not as unique as Edsons Spinning back kick! Him and my son in law worked hard on it, Edson set it up kicking 2 times low so that Etim would drop his guard. This is the mark of true genius! He deserves to win this!

Voted, but how did Jerome Simpson's front-flip touchdown not make the top 4? That was easily the best play of the year. Phone Post
