Video: UFC Fighter Battles Hurricane Irma In Florida, Opts Not To Evacuate

While many Florida residents have elected to momentarily evacuate their homes in anticipation of Hurricane Irma, it would appear that one UFC competitor is electing to remain home.

UFC heavyweight Alexey Oleynik recently took to Twitter to share a video of himself helping clean up debris. In the tweet, the fighter stated “Oleynik UFC rescue ??@ufc @oleynikufc #oleynik #ufc #warrior #mma #oleynikchoke #teamboaconstrictor #florida #hurricane #irma.”

Alexey Oleynik is set to face off against Curtis Blaydes at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 inside the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York.
