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

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

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

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.

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
