On "Your World", White said the Las Vegas community has come together after that "disgusting act of cowardice", and they're not going let one person's evil act change their way of life.
58 people were killed and hundreds injured last Sunday, when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. A lot of these airlines are saying you can use the ticket anytime you want if you don't want to come to Vegas.
The main card of UFC 216 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas opened with a heartfelt tribute to the victims, survivors and first responders of the tragic mass shooting that claimed 58 lives and injured almost 500 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
The UFC donated $1 million to the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting earlier this week.
White also gave tribute to the first responders, victims and local businesses. This isn't an event about the gate or about any of that stuff.
The fight promotion not only holds the bulk of its events there; it's also called the city home for almost two decades, which created the sort of connection that led to an unusual scene at the start of the UFC 216 pay-per-view card at T-Mobile Arena.
White noted that the UFC's donation amounted to roughly $16,000 per family.
"That doesn't fly you home". Boyd Gaming gave $1 million. "And you just can't hide from these people".
Following the tragedy in Las Vegas last weekend, the UFC is doing a little something to give back.
"It's always something that you can't even wrap your brain around and imagine", White said.
