Men’s lifestyle site AskMen.com recently released their annual Top 49 Most Influential Men list. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was the sole figure from mixed martial arts to make the cut.

Other notables on the list include:
49. Daft Punk
45. The Rock
42. Kanye West
38. Cristian Ronaldo
32. Andy Murray
31. Hassan Rouhani
26. Jon Jones
Why is Jon Jones influential?
In 2011, Jon Jones became the UFC’s youngest-ever world champion, and his career has only progressed from there. UFC President Dana White has called him the "most accomplished" light-heavyweight fighter ever, and, on September 21st, he quieted any doubters after emerging victorious from an epic battle with Alexander Gustafsson. He will next defend his title from Glover Teixeira, though no date has been confirmed yet. As Jones continues to contend with challengers, we only know one thing for sure: That he is one of the best MMA fighters of all time.
25. Pope Francis
24. Floyd Mayweather
23. Howard Stern
22. Charlie Hunnam
20. Edward Snowden
18. Sergey Brin
17. Barack Obama
13. Jay Z
11. Vladimir Putin
6. Drake
5. Nelson Mandela
3. Bryan Cranston
1. Elon Musk

Yes, the list is bizarre.

Bryan Cranston more influential than Obama, Putin and the Pope?

The UnderGround, Mayor

Jon Jones neck and neck with the Pope for influence worldwide. With 10 guys no one every heard above them, plus that guy from Sons of Anarachy who overacts more than Captain Kirk.

He's not just a rapper. He used to be on Degrassi High.
