UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar will bring his championship belt to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to greet fans, sign autographs and promote the upcoming Fight For the Troops II, a UFC event to raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, on Wednesday, January 19 from 11am to 12 Noon ET at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Hudson River Park Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue), Manhattan.
“Fight for the Troops” will broadcast live from Fort Hood, TX on January 22 at 9 pm ET on Spike TV. The event will be headlined by a lightweight fight between up-and-comers Evan Dunham and Melvin Guillard. The first “Fight for the Troops” in 2008 raised $4 million for the IFHF.
UFC and Spike TV have teamed up with Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to support our nation’s military who have suffered injuries in service to our nation. The Fund has provided over $120 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans.
