Conor McGregor Beats Virat Kohli To Claim 5th Spot On The List Of World's 100 Famous Athletes

In today's era of sports where fame is directly related to fortune, ESPN has come up with a list of 100 of the most famous athletes from all over the world who enjoy a great fan following.

What criteria were taken into consideration while forming the list?

According to the website, the list was based on the stats in three different areas:

1. Search Score: How often is the name of the particular sportsperson looked up on the internet. The list fixes Cristiano Ronaldo's score of 100 as the baseline and the rest of the athletes were ranked accordingly.

2. Endorsement Dollars: Based on the reports provided by credible sources such as Forbes on the athletes' monetary worth based solely on their endorsement earnings.

3. Social Media Followers: The total number of followers the athletes have across all social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. However, keeping in mind that not a lot of the famous athletes are not present on every social media platform, the numbers of their most famous account has been taken into account.

After going through such a gruelling yet organised method of research, here is the list of the 10 most famous athletes of the world:

1. Cristiano Ronaldo

2. Lebron James

3. Lionel Messi

4. Neymar Jr.

5. Conor McGregor

6. Roger Federer

7. Virat Kohli

8. Rafael Nadal

9. Stephen Curry

10. Tiger Woods

While the top four players mentioned in the list are without doubt deserving, the fact that Conor McGregor was ranked fifth, especially with athletes like Roger Federer and Virat Kohli's immense popularity, seems a bit odd.

We also have to keep in mind that the list comes after whatever actions the numerous athletes took back in 2018.

McGregor's memorable bout with Floyd 'Money' Mayweather definitely catapulted his name's worth amongst the audience that followed sports other than MMA.

Following that, the major rivalry between the Irishman and his Russian opponent Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov which became uglier after the fight, also must have played a huge role, especially in the 'Search Score' and 'Social Media Following' categories.

Having said that, the Indian cricket team's captain Virat Kohli too had the best year of his career. Winning all the three top ICC awards for his brilliance in every format of the game, namely Men's Cricketer of the Year, Test and ODI Cricketer of the Year. He was also named the captain for both ODI and Test Team of the Year.
