UFC pledge $250,000 for Australian bushfire relief efforts

As bushfires ravage large parts of Australia, the UFC and its parent company Endeavor have pledged $250,000 to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

UFC President Dana White posted a video to social media to announce the donation and asked others to do the same.

“To support recovery efforts, UFC is joining Endeavor and its partner companies in making a $250,000 donation to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund,” UFC president Dana White said.

“The people of Australia are facing a long battle to overcome these fires and rebuild their lives, and they need our help.”

The UFC has been instrumental to the growth of mixed martial arts in Australia over the years and has hosted a total of 15 shows in the country since 2010.
