UFC Pledges $1 Million In Relief For Vegas Shooting

UFC Pledges $1 Million In Relief For Vegas Shooting”

On Monday morning, the world was rocked by the news that a horrific mass shooting had claimed the lives of over 50 people in Las Vegas.

. On Sunday evening, at least 59 were killed and 527 were injured at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in the Las Vegas Village when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd from the 32nd floor of the nearby Manadalay Bay.

The promotion has used their social media accounts to share valuable information including where to donate blood and how to locate lost loved ones.

It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history and comes just days before UFC 216, which takes place Saturday in Vegas. The city's first professional franchise from a major American sport is set to host its first home game on October 10 when the Vegas Golden Knights welcome in the Arizona Coyotes. "The fighters are already in town", White told Hill. "As far as the event, it's on", said White to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Vegas, of course, is the longtime headquarters of the UFC and the home of promotion President Dana White. As of press time no injuries or deaths have been associated with any UFC athlete or employee.

Some fans were anxious that this would affect this weekend's (Sat. October 7, 2017) UFC 216 pay-per-view (PPV) event in which Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will go head-to-head for the interim lightweight title.
