hmmm I think Dana should be considered but I don't know about Anderson. Really just because the topic is most _influential_, and while Dana actually has a lot of influence on many things, Anderson pretty much just shows up, fights, and goes home, he doesn't really have much influence, even though he has an overwhelming abundance of skill.

If the question was "most amazing athletes" I'd have to say yeah, throw him up there.

I somewhat agree...but Anderson will soon be influencing you into buying Bud Light

Dana should be in the Businessmen category, fail to see how he is an influential athlete LOL.

1. Jesus
2. Me
3. Oprah Winfrey (Don't say it. I know.)
4. The dude who produced "Two Girls/One Cup". Takes a mad genius to get that many people to watch two chicks eating feces and vomit.
5. The "Leave Britney Alone" guy from Youtube. I actually left her alone after that.
6. Geico Lizard.
7. Everyone else.


-OUT-

Yeah that's the other thing that I was going to mention, but I assumed that by "athlete" they really just meant anyone involved in the field of athletics, promoter, athlete, or otherwise.
