Dana White to Pay for Little Girl's Liver Transplant - Bloody Elbow
You can say what you like about Dana White's business practices, but the guy is certainly capable of the grand gesture. |
It started on the UG with this post from Ben Pittsley:
I recently visitied Tiger Muay Thai and had the experience of a lifetime, But this is not about me, this is about SAVING THE LIFE OF A 4yr OLD GIRL!!!!
I had the pleasure of training with Kru Nai and meeting his family....When I returned home I learned that his daughter needs a LIVER TRANSPLANT or will die....the doctors gave 4 weeks to live.....
Please donate and help save a life
Mr. DANA WHITE,
If you are a true ambassador for the sport.....PAY FOR THIS SURGERY!!!
Please help, no donation to small........the clock is ticking
http://savetuptim.yolasite.com/ or contact TIGER MUAY THAI for details
Nai is the trainer in Roger Huerta's HL Video.....
STEP UP Mr. WHITE.....please save a life
Fightline has more:
Shortly after this was posted, forum member and UFC employee saucylv33 wrote back, "Dana will pay for the remaining funds needed for the surgery."
She assured later that White's offer was "legit," and Tiger Muay Thai associate/fighter Ray Elbe later posted: "Just received confirmation that Dana White is the reason for the season. Monday morning he will be having his assistant contact Grainne Farrell of Lotus Medical to make arrangements for the payment of the Liver transplant operation. Amazing. DFW you have no idea how many people's prayers you answered with this random act of generosity."
I am a frequent critic of Dana White and a frequent recipient of criticism from the UG but this is both at their best and a credit to the sport and humanity in general.
This isn't the first time Dana has paid for things of this nature. Hate him all you want but he is very generous when it comes to the fans and other people. Watch his vblog for UFC 124 where he gives like 20 people free tickets. Of course that example is on other playing field but goes to show. Before you start cussing him out, HOW MANY LIVES HAVE YOU SAVED?
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.

It's always seemed to me that he is just a smart business man and all around a pretty good guy.

Big ups to Dana! I've been in that little girl's position quite a few times and it really touches hearts to know that people genuinely care!
KAPPA ALPHA PSI TIL THE DAY I DIE!!!
