Is Dana White more influential than President Obama? Umm, probably not, but according to Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the world poll, he is.
Earlier today when the UFC sent out a tweet urging people to go vote for Dana he was #2 behind Robert Pattison (the Twillight dude). Now not only is Dana on top, he’s straight-up smoking the competition which includes everyone from the leader of the free world to Doogie Howser, MD. That’s the power of Twitter people. Thousands of followers ready to respond to your call to action in real-time.
We’ll see if Dana’s lead holds up before the poll closes, but if these early results are any indication, President Obama might want to give Dana a call and start buttering him up for an official endorsement for his 2012 reelection campaign.
