Three MMA fighters make Yahoo top-10 most searched athlete list


Yahoo published its annual year in review and included a list of the top 10 most-searched athletes.

Before you read the list at bottom, guess who the three are. You were wrong.

The list was split six women and four men. Auto racing, Basketball, Golf, Football, and Skiing had one athlete each. Tennis had two. MMA had three. But the names may surprize you.

The UFC had only a single figure, and it was Ronda Rousey. The other two were Gina Carano and Tito Ortiz. Carano has left the now disbanded Strikeforce and gone on to a career in movies. Ortiz aims to close out his career in Bellator, although the first scheduled fight was cancelled when he broke his neck.

Full Yahoo list:
1. Tim Tebow - Football
2. Tiger Woods - Golf
3. Danica Patrick - Auto racing
4. Lindsey Vonn - Skiing
5. Ronda Rousey - MMA
6. Lamar Odom - Basketball
7. Tito Ortiz - MMA
8. Serena Williams - Tennis
9. Maria Sharapova - Tennis
10. Gina Carano - MMA

Why do you think those three were three of the top-10 most searched for athletes on Yahoo?

Was the word "nude" or "leak" followed by their name?

Please tell me again why shitty Jacksonville doesn't sign Tebow?! Just sit him on the sideline and enjoy our increased jersey and ticket sales.
