UFC to host more than 1,500 first responders at 216

October 6, 2017

Dana White announced that over 1,500 first responders as well as some injured in the horrific shooting on Sunday will attend UFC 216 Saturday.  White told TSN the news the day before the event.

Everyone at the weigh-ins on Friday were Vegas Strong apparel in support of the community after the tragic mass shooting on Sunday night.  The shirts, made by Fanatics, are being sold at UFC.com with proceeds going to help the families affected by the shooting.  In addition, earlier this week, the UFC announced it was donating $1 million to families of the shooting victims.

Payout Perspective:

It will be an emotional night for the UFC on Saturday.  It was a nice gesture by the UFC and a showing of community by the Vegas-based company.  Of course, the underlying issue here is that the event was not selling well as there are still many tickets available on the primary market with the get-in price at a very affordable $55.
