If Anderson doesn't win he can just be like "oh yeah?" and beat the shiit out of anybody who is a "better athlete" than him!

Race Car drivers are a lot fitter then people give them credit for. In Australia we had a show about 5-6 years ago called Australia's Greatest Athlete, where they took an athlete from several sports and made them compete in a series of challenges. Jamie Whincup (the race car driver) came second.

That being said "Go Anderson!"

Anderson being on there really doesn't make that much sense, he's not even the best athlete in the UFC. This is really more of a most accomplished in their respected sport list, than best athlete. If it were pure athlete, it would be hands down Bo Jackson.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Jordan/Woods - Jordan
Phelps/Silva - Silva
Ali/Allen - Ali
Jackson/Federer - Jackson
Mays/Robinson - Mays
Pele/Hawk - Pele
Lewis/Gretzky - Lewis
Brown/Earnhardt - Brown

RD 2

Jordan/Silva - Jordan
Ali/Jackson - Ali
Mays/Pele - Mays
Lewis/Brown - Brown

RD 3

Jordan/Ali - Ali
Mays/Brown - Brown

Final - Brown

I think based on athletisim I would likely vote Jordan, Ali, Jackson, Lewis, and Brown over Silva.
