If he is the only fighter mentioned in an intra-sport GOAT discussion, is it safe to say hes MMA's GOAT?

I voted for him although he has no realistic chances of winning it all. He should beat Phelps though.

Gretzky should win the entire thing, him or Bo. Woods I wouldn't complain about because he was the single most dominant athlete ever, even if it was for 5 years in a sport where guys have 30 year careers.

The comments on there had a great discussion on athlete vs player. If we are talking about athletic ability alone it's really hard to argue against Bo Jackson. He had it all at uncharted levels size, strength and speed. Who else has even come close to dominate two professional sports in the modern era like he did? Phone Post

Silva isn't even the best MMA fighter, let alone the greatest athlete. I don't think Ali is the greatest boxer either. It's a very strange list.

It seems unfair to have guys that are still active in their sport up against guys that have retired.

Gretzky without a doubt. You guys ever look at the all time points leaders in the NHL? He has almost 1000 more points than the next person. More than 50% more than the next person which is Messier.

Pele would get more votes in Brazil than Silva.

For me it was between Gretzky and Bo. Bo being an all star in two sports at the same time is sick.

Gretzky has more assists than anyone else has points. He has records that will never be beaten http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=552838

Silva is great, but he doesnt deserve to be in the overall running.
