UFC President Dana White ranked 38 in AskMen.com 'Top 49 Men' poll for 2011

UFC President Dana White, who's already having a pretty good year after selling out Toronto's Rogers Centre and landing a blockbuster FOX broadcasting deal, was recently ranked by AskMen.com readers as number 38 in their 'Top 49 Men' poll for 2011.

That puts White ahead of pop sensation-turned actor Justin Timberlake (46) and New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady (42), but behind Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (32) and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (27).

Here's why:

Just when we thought the UFC couldn’t get any bigger, Dana White had to go ahead and prove us all wrong -- again. In what White himself deemed the biggest moment of his career, the charismatic president helped to legalize MMA in Toronto, which helped set the stage for UFC 129 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, an event that drew 55,000 fans and broke ratings records in what White insists is the UFC’s No. 1 television market on the planet. As if that wasn’t enough, White also inked a major broadcasting deal with FOX, which will help ensure that the UFC gets plenty of airtime on the network’s various subsidiary channels for years to come. White might never actually step into the ring himself, but, boy, does he know how to win.

The late Steve Jobs, Apple founder and CEO, was ranked numero uno. White's reaction on making the Top 49 for 2011, after the jump.

"I’m honored for even being thought of for a 3rd time, especially for the fact that readers have voted for this. I am just completely honored."

The Zuffa boss debuted on the annual list at number 10 in 2009, before tumbling down the rankings to number 32 for 2010. This year he drops a few spots but still holds steady at number 38.

Any Maniacs out there think he should be ranked lower -- or higher?
