Jorge Masvidal heading to Australia in February to help put out deadly bushfires

UFC Fight Night Till v Masvidal

The Baddest Mother****r in UFC is about to take on his toughest challenge yet, according to a recent tweet he posted.

Jorge Masvidal, who successfully defeated Nate Diaz to win the BMF title at the end of last year, is set to travel to Australia in February and wants to help out as much as he can with regards to tackling the wild bushfires that are currently destroying large parts of the country.

Celebrities and sportspeople alike are coming together to try and do everything they can in order to help the country, as fires continue to tear through the wildlife and ruin people's homes and lives.

Thousands of animals have been killed due to the fires, and more and more humans are starting to pass away as well, with no signs of the fires slowing down.

Due to the intense heat Australia has been having in recent months, plus strong winds and very little rain, the fires have spread rapidly and it's been reported that a staggering 9.9MILLION acres of bushland has been decimated.

As a result, people are doing all they can to help, and Masvidal is no different.

The UFC champ tweeted recently: "I’ll be in #Australia in February and would like to help. Proceeds from my visit will go to help but I also want to physically help put out the fires #theresurrection"

Other sportspeople such as tennis star Nick Kyrgios and legendary cricketer Shane Warne have already offered their help as well, with the former willing to donate money for every ace he serves, whilst the latter is donating some of his cricket memorabilia to try and raise funds.

It's not just Masvidal, Kyrgios and Warne that are offering support, however, plenty of people all over the world are coming together and doing their bit to try and help Australia.

Let's hope something is done sooner rather than later to help save the beautiful country, and help save people's lives.
