Who needs the President of the USA when you have the President of the UFC in your corner.
The UFC is donating $1-million to the families of those affected by Sunday's mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, according to president Dana White.
White told ESPN the company took a "full count of employees" on Monday morning in the wake of the tragedy. UFC operations are based in Las Vegas, inside a newly opened headquarters just west of the Las Vegas Boulevard.
"At the end of the day, this is our city—we love this place," White told ESPN. "The first thing when we got up this morning, everybody, personally, got it together and made sure anybody they know or love was okay. Then we came in here and made sure all of our employees are okay. Then you start thinking about this city, our hometown, and we felt we needed to do this. This is something we needed to do."
In addition to the $1-million donation, a planned UFC 216 pay-per-view event on Saturday inside T-Mobile Arena will be "dedicated to the entire city of Las Vegas.
Wow—for the first time ever, the UFC matches will actually make sense to me.
