In the sporting world, Barack Obama is only slightly more powerful than Dana White

Can Obama do something about athletic commissions on a federal level? Perhaps make them not suck so consistently? Maybe he can release a drone to keep an eye on questionable judges so we can be free of one of America’s leading causes of cardiac arrest: the moronic split-decision. We should be redirecting an extremely lopsided amount of federal funding away from the war machine and towards education, specifically to better educate our MMA judges. I would even go so far as to internationally educate MMA judges if need be. We are America, damn it. It is our duty to be the world leaders in everything violent, thus MMA betterment should be shot through the pipeline fast and furious style.

I fear my name will go on a scary list (if it isn’t already) if I keep up with this article, so look at Obama, one spot ahead of Dana White on the Sports Illustrated 50 Most Powerful People in Sports list, which is a 100% scientific list with little human error.

Now Dana and Barack have something to break the ice if they ever are at a cocktail party together.
