The country of Australia has been battling wildfires that have reportedly burned approximately 18 million acres, killed nearly 30 people and have also killed billions of animals and destroyed a large portion of their habitats.
Both the UFC and Endeavor, which is the parent company of the UFC, has pledged $250,000 towards the relief efforts to help Australia through this crisis.
UFC President Dana White released the following video about the pledge through Twitter:

Here is a transcript of what White said on Twitter, provided by MMA Junkie:
“To support recovery efforts, UFC is joining Endeavor and its partner companies in making a $250,000 donation to the Australian Red Cross Diaster Relief and Recovery Fund. The people of Australia are facing a long battle to overcome these fires and rebuild their lives, and they need our help.”
