ESPN: Anderson Silva nominated for Greatest Athlete of all Time along BIG names
 
Here's the link - it's an online poll so can't really post it in here ;)

Now of course he won't win, but it's pretty awesome that he's even in that list. MMA is getting more and more mainstream ;)

Thats pretty damn cool. I'm voting for him. Quick fun fact. Of the 16 candidates, 10 are black.

I wasn't expecting this type of list. But I voted for him anyways.

Anderson is going up against Michael Phelps... tough luck I guess.

Budhisten 02-11-2013 12:22 PM

He's in the bracket with Michael Phelps

EDIT: Sneaky hammerlock :p

Get everybody to vote for Anderson Silva on here, Twitter, and FB. Wouldn't that be something if he takes out Phelps. This could further legitimize the sport of MMA.

Voted for Silva... But I hope either Ali or Gretzky wins it.

Earnheart being on that list if freaking hilarious. Driving a fast car does not make someone an athlete.

Well you gotta be an athlete to drive one of those cars for the length and heat of those races, and need brass balls. But it is a joke I agree.

The list could only be made by americans as there are 7 guys in there that wouldnt be considered at all by people outside the country
