Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning wins two ESPY awards

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning won two honors at the ESPY Awards Wednesday night.

Manning was named best NFL player and was honored for the best record breaking performance of the year.

Manning was beat by Kevin Durant for male athlete of the year. Durant, of the Oklahoma City Thunder, also won best NBA player on Wednesday night, ending LeBron James' two-year reign in both categories.

Mixed martial arts star Ronda Rousey earned female athlete honors, becoming the first UFC fighter to claim a trophy in the biggest category at the show.

Rousey, the first female UFC champion, won over WNBA star Maya Moore, Olympic champion skier Mikaela Shiffrin and Brenna Stewart of national champion Connecticut.

The winners in most categories were determined by fan voting.
