As far as team sport goes, Wayne Gretzky is the obvious answer.
Juan Manuel Fangio.
Seven full seasons in Formula One, where he won five titles and was runner up twice, as well as a 51% winning ratio in all of his races.
And he did this in his mid-fourties in an era where one mistake meant almost certain death.
Yeah he had a good run but I'm not too impressed with the number of times he broke the record. That was by design and he wanted to break the record at each meet. He could have broke it by a large amount but instead broke the record by very small amounts a bunch of times. IfI am not mistaken this was in a time when they technology for the poles was really improving.
Certainly Bubka was dominate but the number of times he broke the record is misleading.
As much as I love Jordan I would have to say Gretzky dominated his sport more. Still hockey sucks lol. Dont think I've ever watched a game while I have watched plenty of years of baseball and basketball.
Too complex to select just one, but some names that come to mind:
Basketball - Michael Jordan
Football - Joe Montana
Hockey - Wayne Gretzky
Baseball - Babe Ruth
MMA - Chuck Lidell
Boxing - Muhammad Ali
In his prime, Chuck had a lot of very quick knock outs, hands that were hard to beat, and an uncanny ability to get up off of the mat after being taken down by some of the best wrestlers. Chuck was the first really big UFC star for good reason.
Big star but not most dominant imo
Nobody in MMA has been as dominant as somebody like Wayne Gretzky in hockey
GSP is the closest one
Lionel Messi is basically the best in the worlds biggest and arguably most difficult sport for the last 12-15 years in a row.
Separate names with a comma.
