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.”
