Conor McGregor, DJ Up For ESPYs


Conor McGregor and Demetrious Johnson have both picked up ESPY nominations, ESPN announced recently.

McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion who will face Floyd Mayweather on August 26 in a boxing match, is up for three awards. “Notorious” is in the running to defend his “Best Fighter” award won last year, as Johnson, Terence Crawford, Gennady Golovkin and Andre Ward complete the nominees.

This is the first nomination for Johnson, who is the reigning UFC flyweight champion.

McGregor is also up for “Best Breakthrough Athlete” and “Best International Athlete” awards.

The 2017 ESPY awards air July 12 on ABC from Los Angeles.
