5. Zdeno Chara – Hockey
Outside of MMA, a vast majority of sports fans agree that hockey players are, amongst tough athletes, some of the baddest dudes on the planet.
Hockey players constantly play through ridiculous injuries and duke it out with reckless abandon.
That goes from sick to stupid when Zdeno Chara is plugged into the equation.
At 6’9”, Chara towers over the competition, and is (understandably) not afraid to thrown down with anyone.
As hard as Chara hits, he hits the puck even harder. His slapshot is the fastest in the NHL and, although controversial, potentially the world. Topping out at 108.8 mph, Chara won the hardest shot challenge at the All-Star Game Skills Competition five years in a row (2007-12; there was no ASG in 2010).
