I'm a fan of both sports, but being that my signature is of Pac Man, I have to say...
Lyoto Machida and Anderson Silva will fight Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosely for ESPY award
There is much debate among fight fans these days about whether or not MMA has overtaken boxing in popularity. Personally, I don't feel the need to make that distinction, but for those looking to prove their points, the upcoming ESPY awards will give one group some serious ammunition. Two boxers (Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosely) have been nominated for the "Best Fighter" award, along with two UFC fighters (Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida).
The ESPYS will be boadcast on ESPN on Sunday, July 19th at 9 PM ET. If you'd like to have your opinion heard, you can cast your votes here.
MMA will receive a little more love from ESPN this Friday, June 26th on "Jim Rome is Burning." The popular talk radio host will have Dan Henderson as a guest on the show. Rome and "Hendo" will talk about UFC 100 and the latter's upcoming fight with Michael Bisping. That show airs on ESPN, Friday the 26th at 4:30 PM ET/1:30 PM PT.
