ESPY Awards: Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones, and Chris Weidman among UFC's 2014 nominees


And "Rowdy" is up for multiple awards.

For the fourth straight year, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is up for an ESPY award.

But this time, he's got a little competition from within.

That's because UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey -- like "Bones" -- has also been nominated for "Best Fighter" of 2014, according to the annual ESPN award panel. But the similarities end there, as "Rowdy" also garnered a nod for "Best Female Athlete."

UFC Middleweight Champion and ESPY debutant Chris Weidman is up for "Best Upset," thanks to a UFC 162 knockout over Anderson Silva, who has been bounced from this year's voting.

Speaking of which, click here to cast your ballot.

While Rousey and Weidman are new to the ESPYs, Jones is not. "Bones," however, played second fiddle to boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013, as "Money" continues to land the most votes for "Best Fighter" and with his undefeated streak remaining intact last year, he'll once again be the man to beat.

So get out there and let your voice click be heard!
