UFC President Dana White is hosting a benefit event to raise money for TJ Lavin, the MTV host and BMX star who was critically injured last month. His accident left him with various injuries and for a short while placed the extreme sportsman in a coma. Ty Pinney will also receive part of the proceeds, Pinney was also placed in a coma during a stunt attempt last month.
As part of the fundraiser, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker will auction off a set of drums, while Rob Dyrdek is offering a trip to his Fantasy Factory. Other celebrities and sports stars will also offer auction materials to help both men.
Money raised at the event will go to help pay for both of the men’s medical bills.
Lavin is currently recovering at home while Pinney is undergoing rehab therapy at a center in Las Vegas.
