That was a terrible list. I'm not saying MMA fighters decided to be on there but there are other athletes who should be.

Ya, the list sucks.

But guys, we have to remember, us, as MMA fans, have a different view of athleticism.

It is different in that we actually know what athletes consist of. The turds that make these lists try to be politically correct and pick guys from every sport so nobody complains. I'm just taking comfort in the fact that we know that GSP should be number one.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

There list was bad, but there are athletes from every sport that are extremly athletic. MMA doesn't even have the highest fitness requirement, or most likely, the most fit participants as a whole.

Arod fits well under there given criteria.

At least you could make a good case for Arod based on his accomplishments. I don't see how you can even make a case for a 400 meter runner and a hurdeler. I didn't have a problem with including Mayweather or Federer though I wouldn't have.

Ya I agree GMW. I was just a little bitter that they have a boxer on their who, imo, isn't as good of an overall athlete as someone like GSP, but I don't expect the people who make that list to even know what MMA is.

Alright, my bad, I just tend to jump when I see people who put MMA above everything without any consideration, even though its an MMA forum that irks me.
