The UFC maybe violet and barbaric, but it certainly does have its soft side. UFC President Dana White is paying for a 4-year old girl’s liver transplant after an amateur fighter posted the request on an internet message board. Dan Pittsley wrote on MixedMartialArts.com:
I recently [visited] 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

STEP UP Mr. WHITE…..please save a life
Just hours after the request was posted, a UFC employee responded saying White would pay for the surgery. White has been an advocate for charity, donating $250,000 for cancer research and started a boxing program for inner city children in Boston.
