Want to scoop up some cool UFC fight history and help a good cause at the same time?
If so, today’s your lucky day: Dustin Poirier has just put his UFC 236 fight kit up for auction on eBay, with all proceeds going to his Good Fight Foundation. Their goal: to fund a special playground for the kids at an elementary school for disabled children in his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana.
But enough about them, what’s included in that kit?!? Pretty much everything Poirier wore to the Octagon to fight Max Holloway except his gloves, jock, and undies. His hat, shirt, and shorts are included. There’s sweat pants and a white sweater. You get his UFC 236 restricted access lanyard pass, guaranteed to get you backstage at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta should you develop time travel technology. Probably coolest of all, you get his bloody wraps.
Currently the bidding is up to $3000, and if that’s too rich for you then there’s a more affordable option. Also just added: Eryk Anders’ UFC 236 kit consisting of his shirt, shorts, sweater, and sweatpants.
Seriously, it’s for a very good cause. Poirier and his wife Jolie started the Good Fight Foundation in memory of a boy named Aaron Hill who died at the age of seven.
”Aaron attended Prarie Elementary School and was in class with children with special needs,” the Good Fight Foundation’s website reads. “He absolutely loved going out to the playground. When he was in the wheelchair he liked going for walks, he would’ve loved to swing. He most enjoyed being outside with his friends playing. Aaron’s wish was to have a disability playground for children with special needs! Our goal is to provide Prairie Elementary with a Disability Playground dedicated to Aaron Hill!”
Here is the link for the @TheGoodFightFDN auction! Its everything I wore to the octagon on Saturday night. The gloves aren't being auctioned with it because I had a generous offer for them that will help our goal! Thank you all!!https://t.co/ztAfjLamFa— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) April 18, 2019
Those who are fans of Max “Blessed” Holloway, keep your eyes peeled. Holloway was gracious enough in defeat to sign and donate his gloves to the Good Fight cause, and unless they’re sold privately we expect they’ll end up on eBay too.
For those just looking to support the cause, here’s the Good Fight Foundation’s PayPal donations page.
