The 20 Ugliest Athletes of All Time
Sports, unlike movies or clubs, do not care what you look like once you step onto the field.
These are in no particular order because it's bad enough Just to be on this list. You can be your own judge.
Honorable Mention: Gary Gaetti
He was one of the last players to wear the helmet with no ear flaps.
That's about it in terms of Gaetti trivia for you.
Others receiving votes:
20. Popeye Jones
Popeye is no sailor man and probably isn't eating spinach by the look of his build.
19. Dirk Nowitzki
There seems to be a theme here with European NBA players not being the best looking gentlemen out there.
Nowitzki is no exception.
18. Leon Spinks
Leon Spinks went 1-1 against Muhammad Ali, beating him while Ali was at the tail end of his career.
He has gotten those teeth replaced, thankfully, since this picture was taken.
17. Marko Jaric
How is this guy dating Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima?
He must have a great personality.
16. Mike Ricci
Mike Ricci was a journeyman player in the NHL but became known for his play with the San Jose Sharks.
Enough with the pleasantries, he is not a pretty man and this is actually one of the better pictures of him.
15. Bobby Holik
Dude, they are called tweezers.
While unibrows won't get you chicks, being a pro athlete will.
14. Chris Kaman
He recently cut his hair short.
I personally think he should go back to the longer hair so we don't notice his bald spot and it goes back to covering most of his face.
13. Carlos Tevez
What does Carlos Tevez do when he's not playing soccer?
Well, he isn't entering beauty pageants anytime soon.
12. Randy Johnson
Randy Johnson may be the best left-handed pitcher of all-time.
He was the most dominant pitcher in an era that was marked by home-run hitters.
The mullet is what he became known for on the mound but that's a fashion that has gone out of style... well it never was in style. Unless you're from Arkansas.
11. Alexander Ovechkin
Alexander Ovechkin is one of the best players in the NHL. He's already won the Hart Trophy twice and is only 24.
With his lack of good looks, the visor isn't necessary to protect his face.
10. Ken Daneyko
Ken Daneyko was an enforcer in the NHL and if you didn't know, look at his lack of teeth and the pride that goes with them.
(He's the guy on the right)
9. Pau Gasol
Gasol is one of the most overall skilled big men to play in the NBA.
He's also one of the ugliest. His brother, Marc, didn't get the good looks in the family either.
8. Sam Cassell
ET phone home.
This man has been having people wonder whether or not he comes from a far and distant planet ever since he came into the league.
As long as we don't have to see him commentating on NBA games, we all win.
7. Don Mossi
Don Mossi is one of those old-school ugly guys.
He helped invent the ugly athlete.
6. Frank Ribery
I had never heard of this guy before making this list but he did come highly recommended from a few friends who followed soccer.
Clearly they know ugly.
5. Ezequiel Astacio
I don't think I have to go into further detail about why he is on this list.
4. Dennis Rodman
The man came to a book signing in a wedding dress. He went for shock and awe.
In truth he's just a weird guy.
3. Iain Dowie
This guy starred in the classic movie 'The Goonies.'
Just kidding but he did do stunts for the guy who played Sloth.
2. Gheorghe Muresan
Gheorghe Muresan is one of the tallest men on our list, coming in at a whopping 7'7".
He also was the star of the classic film 'My Giant.' What was it about? I'm assuming it was about how tall he is and not how ugly he is.
1. Lorenzo Mata
By far the ugliest person to ever play a sport.
But sadly he never went pro and everyone was saved from having to look at his ugly mug.
