Sports Illustrated published its 50 Most Powerful People in Sports, and UFC president Dana White is included on the list. White comes in at No. 45, right behind President Barack Obama.
White has helped push the UFC into mainstream media, as the promotion now airs on FOX and has put together several high-profile events over the recent years.
The outspoken UFC leader ranks ahead of notables Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Cindy Davis, Nike Golf president, and Michael Jordan, the former NBA star and current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
