UFC® AND MARK MUNOZ TEAM UP TO HELP FLOOD VICTIMS IN PHILIPPINES
Bid Now on a Pair of Autographed UFC® Gloves
The Ultimate Fighting Championship® is teaming up with UFC® middleweight contender Mark Munoz to raise funds for flood victims in the Philippines. Now through Sunday, October 14 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET fans can bid on autographed gloves for charity via www.UFCCharityAuction.afrogs.org.
The special online auction via AuctionFrogs.org features a fantastic range of signed gloves. Some of the biggest names in the UFC including Chuck Liddell, Junior dos Santos, Chael Sonnen, BJ Penn, and Nick Diaz have autographed official UFC fight gloves that will be included in the auction.
A proud Filipino-American, Munoz was scheduled to visit the Philippines in August to conduct a series of mixed martial arts (MMA) workshops, as MMA is one of the fastest growing sports in the Philippines. However, his trip was postponed when heavy rains caused major flooding and displaced residents.
As a result, Munoz decided to champion the cause by teaming up with the UFC for this special online auction and encouraging fans to make donations to the Philippine Red Cross for the affected families of the rains and floods.
