After a month-long voting period that drew over 500,000 ballots, released its Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2009 list today, and it turns out that a shocking number of AskMen’s readers want to be Dana White when they grow up. Coming in at #10, the UFC president managed to beat out such heavy hitters as Jay-Z (#11), Jon Stewart (#13), Quentin Tarantino (#15), Conan O’Brien (#16), Brad Pitt (#21), Manny Pacquiao (#24), and Kanye West (#26). He also came in ahead of one of his star employees, welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, who made the list at a very respectable #36, right between Andy Roddick and Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Said Dana of his impressively high placement on the Top 49:

"I have received a lot of awards over the last 10 years, but to be voted by the fans as one of the most influential men on is truly an honor. Thank you all very much for your votes and support."

Oddly enough, the list’s #1 spot was taken by a fictional character — Don Draper, the smooth-talking, scotch-drinking, stewardess-banging superhero of AMC’s Mad Men. (Sorry, Jon Hamm, you’ll get ‘em next year.) You can check out the rest of the list right here.

"Maybe if you would stop drinking Cosco sized bottles of baby oil at every press conference, people would stop saying things."

You think the MGM Grand could've wiped that gold emblem plate off before the press conference?

Ask Men is a fucking retarded site. They must pay people a lot to talk about their asinine polls.

All lists are pretty lame. And that includes every MMA site's power rankings.

What a stupid list. How the hell is that piece of shit Kanye West an influential person, and how the hell did he get #26?

It DID change everything, Richard.

Before Usain Bolt, who ever heard of a black guy running really fast?

Coming in at #50, Hermes Franca, who's really been having trouble making these cuts lately.

I can't make any sense of this list. Pretty hard to believe where everyone ended up.

LOL @ Barack Obama being #3 after Don Draper and Usain Bolt. When Usain ran really fast at the Olympics, IT CHANGED EVERYTHING.
