UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva already holds the distinction – in the eyes of many – as the greatest MMA fighter to ever step foot inside the cage. Now, he could be crowned the best athlete ever.
ESPN is conducting a poll to determine the greatest athlete of all-time. Using ESPN Sport Science and fan voting, Silva has been selected as one of the finalist.
