UFC president Dana White is a proud Boston native and, when he was talking with the media after this past weekend’s UFC on FOX 7 event, he shed some light on his plans to help out the Boston community and those who were affected by the tragic bombings.
White wore a “Boston Strong” t-shirt at the weigh-ins Friday, and now he plans to visit Boston after next weekend’s UFC 159 event to show his support and help out in any way that he can.
I have a hard time talking about this in public because if I really do talk about it, I’m going to come off like a psycho.
I’ve really limited talking about it, but I’m going to Boston on Saturday. After [UFC 159], I’m jumping on a plane and flying to Boston, and I’m actually going to go visit some people that were affected by this horrible event.
The story that gets me is the mother that was crossing the finish line and the 8-year-old that was killed and the 6-year-old that lost her leg by a couple of f*cking cowards.
I’m going to go to Boston and write some checks. I don’t even know how I’m going to do it or what I’m going to do, but I’m going. I want to go. I’m going next weekend.
