"Times are tough all over, but UFC light heavyweight contender Ryan Bader always has his mind on helping those in need so for the fourth time in his last five fights he will donate a significant amount of his sponsorship money to a military organization supporting troops coming back from combat overseas.
"Bader has worked with several military organizations in the past couple of years donating over $70,000 of his fight earnings to the Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation, the Armed Forces Foundation, Wounded Warriors, where he's taken veterans on 'all access UFC weekends' out of his own pocket.
"It's something Bader has taken on as a passion project thanks to friends who have been in the military as well as several tours he's been on, meeting troops and spending time with veterans, while he's been in the UFC."
