The tragic wildfires spreading through California have left many families devastated and evacuating from their homes. The fires have burned over 221,000 acres of land throughout the state, with 36 people reportedly killed from the fires. Among those affected by the tragedy, UFC’s Henry Cejudo suffered burns to his foot when he was forced to leap from the second floor balcony of a hotel to escape the fire.
Despite his injury, Cejudo is still set to take on Sergio Pettis at UFC 218 on Dec. 2 in Detroit, Michigan. Now Cejudo has come forward to reveal that he is donating any bonus money from his upcoming fight to help those in need within the Santa Rosa area.
Speaking to ESPN, here is what Cejudo had to say:
“I’m going to dedicate this fight to all the people from Santa Rosa. I want to fight for them. I know I’m going to put on a show, and when I get a fight-night bonus, I want to dedicate that money to the relief fund.
“Some people don’t know, there are a lot of people are still missing. I’m dedicating this fight to those people, and I’m going to give a $50,000 check to them.”
