The 50 Cockiest Athletes of All Time

37. Anderson Silva

Sport: MMA
Career: 1997-Present
Cockiest Quote: “To be honest with you, I really don't like to hurt my opponents; this just happens to be our job. But if somebody disrespects me they will pay for it. I promise.”

In a sport where you can be yesterday's news tomorrow, Anderson Silva remains a mainstay in mixed martial arts. Even with his notoriously cocky style that includes obnoxiously swaying all around the Octagon and taunting his opponents to no end, The Spider is still capable of defeating all comers, and rather easily at that. In fact, Silva hasn't lost a match since January 2006, so as they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Unless it's one of these. Then yeah, fix it. Hi lunch. *Royce voice*
