UFC pays for funeral of Bobby Green's brother


In a wonderful display of generosity, the UFC will pay for the funeral of Bobby Green’s brother, who was murdered last week.

Green took to twitter to thank the UFC, saying “Thank you god, the UFC has decided to pay for my brother’s funeral. What a blessing, this is definitely the biggest moment of my career.”

Green’s brother, Michell Wayne Daivs Jr, was killed last week in a drive-by shooting that also send three others to the hospital, according to The Sun.

Davis, along with three other members of his family were working on cars that were parked in the 2800 block of West Victoria street, when a black four-door Honda drove past the family, and gunned them down.

After the incident, Green, who has been actively seeking information on Twitter, said “I feel sad as a black man in Cali we are programmed to hate and kill each other. I honestly feel hopeless for our youth.”

Green also thanked his friends and followers. “Thank you for all your love and donations. My spirit has been low, and I want you to know you guys are the ones who keep me together.”
