Las Vegas, Nevada is home to the UFC and many of the company's fighters. It's no surprise, then, that the promotion was rocked by the mass shooting on Sunday night that left at least 59 dead and over 500 injured, per CNN.com.
The MMA world is taking action, with Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal tweeting the UFC plans to donate $1 million to victims of the shooting:
