Fans can help multiple UFC stars win ESPY's



Three of the biggest stars in the sport need your help, fight fans.

UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, featherweight champion Conor McGregor and former women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm are all up for an ESPY, and fans can help them by voting online.

The ESPY's, ESPN's yearly sports awards show, announced their nominations for awards earlier this week and opened online voting. The results will be aired on July 13 at 8 pm ET on ABC.

McGregor is in contention for two awards: Breakthrough Athlete, where he is going against Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, snowboarder Chloe Kim and Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns, and Best Fighter, where he is going against Lawler and a trio of boxers: Gennady Golovkin, Canelo Alvarez and Roman Gonzalez.

Holm is up for Best Upset in her fight against Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 against Roberta Vinci defeating Serena Williams at the U.S. Open and No. 15-seed Middle Tennessee defeating No. 2-seed Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament. She's also in a bracket competition for Best Play of the Year with her KO of Rousey.

Fans can vote from now until the live airing of the show on July 13.
