Mayweather beats out Paquiao and GSP for ESPY

This years' ESPY "Fighter of the Year" award recipient was somewhat of an unpleasant surprise for MMA fans.

Forget about three successful title defenses since the 2009 ESPYs -- Georges St. Pierre, or IBO and WBO title wins in 2009 from Ring World Lightweight Champion Manny Paquiao.

I suppose those feats mean nothing when compared to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. who fought only once in 2010, no belts, no title challenges, nothing special.

Is boxing really making a comeback, or is ESPN involved in a conspiracy to undermine MMA?

I smell a Bob Arum payoff with ESPN on the bank books.
