These are the athletes who love themselves like nobody else does and are just plain cocky.

The Top Ten

1 Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Unfortunate to say it, but this guy is an embarrassment to the US, and to the sport. Not a class act at all.

2 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

Ali trash talked every opponent he ever faced in the ring and then just trash talked them in interviews. Ali later on said that he only did those things for popularity to make his career grow and apologized to anyone he said things to. Yet it still doesn't take away how he blabbered all over the world. Ali said repeatedly that he was the greatest and maybe he was but that's why they called him the Louisville Lip. Ali was the biggest trash talker out of them all but unlike most of the athletes on here he always backed it up which definitely deserves respect for dealing with the likes of people like Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, and many others.

People get inspire from his talk of arrogance...It is his affirm believe and faith what he shouted...He always put smile on people around him with his jokes and humor.. He treated people so humbly that everyone consider that he is his friend...

Had an amazing arrogance, but he backed it up. And through history, outside of the sport, he has loved the people around him, and those throughout the world he could influence.

3 LeBron James LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Heat and the Cavaliers.

Lebron thinks that he's the best thing that ever happened to the NBA and for the people who watch the sports center know all to well that we see way too much of Lebron. He thinks he's better than Michael Jordan but yet hasn't even become better than Bryant yet. Lebron also thought that he was to good for the Cavaliers and said he needed to be on a better team. Compared to the old Chicago Bull's players Lebron is just an average basketball player in an age with less talent in basketball.

He won a championship, but that still doesn't save him from literally ripping Cleveland sports' fans hearts out when he "took his talents to South Beach" just so he could win a championship. Furthermore, he's a crybaby and like Tom Brady wants everything on his side. - Apples23

4 Tom Brady Tom Brady more.

I, for one, Iike Brady, but there's absolutely no denying he is very cocky and whines like a baby whenever he wants a call for him. It almost seems like he can't except defeat, well THAT'S PART OF SPORTS! - Apples23

Tom Baby always will have that smirk on his face and that cocky look on him. Well that is until his team starts losing then you see him staring at the ground and being silent the entire time and maybe if we're lucky we get to see him cry like when he lost to the New York Giants... Twice! A lot of people have said that the Patriots are cheaters which in a way their right. They get away with too much on the field and are babied but whenever something happens to them you better prepare for Brady to be balling on the news tomorrow. Panthers VS Patriots 2013 a flag was called on the Panthers with 3 sec left in the game but then they watched the replay and decided there was no way they would have got the ball and decided that it was the end of the game. Brady was furious yelling at the ref and stormed off the field without saying good game or anything acting like a total 5 year old.

5 Richard Sherman Richard Sherman Richard Kevin Sherman is an American football cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.
6 Chael Sonnen

He thinks he is the best UFC fighter in the whole business well his record doesn't say so. He has a record of 28 wins and 14 losses. That doesn't seem like a good UFC record. He repeatedly demanded fights with the Silva's and lost twice to Anderson Silva after he pretty much said it was going to an easy fight. The cocky American Gangster has lost to the likes of Jeremy Horn, Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, and of course Anderson Silva. Sounds like a great MMA fighter to me.

7 DeSean Jackson DeSean Jackson DeSean William Jackson, nicknamed "D-Jax", is an American football wide receiver and return specialist for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. more.

DeSean doesn't even have a reason to be arrogant. He said he was going to guarantee a super bowl and the Eagles barley made it into the playoffs. I'm sure the Eagles were extremely glad trading him to another team.

Hello its me

8 Roy Jones Jr.

Roy like a lot of boxers have a right to be arrogant but to a point. Roy is probably the most arrogant and cocky light heavyweight boxer there ever was but yet he might be the greatest light heavyweight there ever actually is. Roy for the longest time was undefeated until he lost his 35th fight by disqualification. Roy looked like he was not even trying against his opponents he would keep his hands down not protecting his head or body and did his fake uppercut cross punch. Roy Jones is a huge trash talker and arrogant fighter but for a while like Tyson and Ali he had a right.

9 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

He sucks he thinks he's the best. Messi is the best there was, there is, and there ever will be... - Sw1g1ty_Sw0g1ty

He thinks that he is better than Messi, but Leo is the actual king

He tries to humilates others and thinks that he is the best..
