The sector was formidable, however when the mud settled on the 2017 ESPY Awards Wednesday night time, probably the most dominant champion within the UFC was the final man standing, as UFC flyweight boss Demetrious Johnson gained the ESPY for Greatest Fighter.

“Mighty Mouse” prevailed over fellow UFC champion Conor McGregor and boxing stars Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, Andre Ward and Terence Crawford to turn into the third MMA fighter to take the award. McGregor and Ronda Rousey have been earlier winners.

The UFC’s first and solely flyweight champion, the 30-yr-previous Johnson tied Anderson Silva’s report for many profitable UFC title defenses with 10 when he submitted Wilson Reis in April.
