Video: Teen with brain cancer wants to see UFC event, Lorenzo Fertitta tells him 'I'm in!'

And as far as fight cards go, you can't do much better than UFC 171.

Jake Stoneking has created a bucket list.

While most folks go ahead and compile a wish list of things to do before they die, they don't often do it at the age of 19. Then again, most folks don't have medulloblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer.

Among the items Stoneking wanted to accomplish before passing on, was getting a tattoo and hitting up a local topless bar. Basically, all the cool stuff most 19-year-old teens want to do each weekend. Number two on his list was attending a live UFC event.

All hail the power of Twitter.


Take that, Culinary Union!

Stoneking is from West Linn, Oregon, which just so happens to be the hometown of a certain "American Gangster" named Chael Sonnen, who just finished wrapping up his coaching duties on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil 3," opposite nemesis Wanderlei Silva.

And Sonnen knows a thing or two about hooking up his fans.

Doctors originally gave Stoneking three months to live; however, the former wrestler is currently undergoing an experimental treatment in hopes of extending his life another year.
