Country music superstar Jason Aldean didn’t listen to UFC boss Dana White. And some hospitalized victims of last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas are grateful.
Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Everlast sang an emotional rendition of “America the Beautiful” before UFC 216 on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena.
UFC president Dana White plans to honor the heroes and victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas at UFC 216 and wants as many first responders as possible to be there to witness the event in person.
Some UFC 216 fighters hadn’t arrived in Las Vegas, others were already in town when the mass shooting took place on Sunday night on the Las Vegas Strip.
UFC president Dana White said Monday that the organization will donate $1 million to families affected by Sunday’s mass shooting on the Strip. He also said Saturday’s UFC 216 card at T-Mobile Arena will go on as scheduled.
