Pound for pound what sport produces the best athletes

The question isn't what sport has the best athletes. Its what sport produces the best athletes, what I mean by this is what sport's training requires turns you into a great athlete.

I say its the combat sports(Boxing MMA KickBoxing) and if I had to just pick one out of the 3 it would be Boxing(fights are 3x as long as K1 and UFC).

Basketball...every weakness is exposed. No "just playing offense", "just playing defense". "just hitting". "just blocking"....etc.

You have to do it alllll!

I still maintain that Tennis is by far the greatest combination of athleticism and skill. To be great you must be in peak physical condition while also possessing an unusual amount of skill as well.
