    Las Vegas is the fight capital of the world. With so many MMA/boxing events held there, the recent shooting tragedy kind of hits us "close to home".

    At this moment there are 55+ confirmed deceased and 500+ injured. People that were just going to have a good time and couldn't have expected such a dangerous and tragic situation to transpire.

    I've been following this tragedy now and am very saddened by what has happened. My condolences go out to the victims that so tragically lost their lives and their loved ones. I also hope for the recovery of those that were hurt and injured.

    Many people are working very hard and tirelessly right now to help save as many people as possible. These moments right after the tragedy are critical.

    So if you can help, please do.

    Here's a a link to the GoFundMe page to help out the victims and families of the shooting:

    Here's a link to the Las Vegas Metro PD's Twitter to get more information:

    And if you're in the area, donating blood would be very, very helpful:

    Just out of curiosity

    Probably best to go to the war room because this thread will turn bad fast

    This is a thread for donations. It's stickied in the heavies because it'll get the most eyes. Anything that derails this thread will earn anyone dubs or a ban.

    Too many crazy/violent people in the world today. What would make someone want to do such a thing is beyond me..

    Such a tragedy..

    Terrible event.
    Honestly,as a free thinker I always took the American ideals as the best way to build a strong nation .
    It deeply saddens me see this happening.

    My feelings to all of you,the victims and families.

    Keep it going strong!
    Always!!!

    When I checked earlier, they were at less than $100,000 in donations. Good on the UFC for this big donation.

    Will make a donation. MMA or country music or anything in between nobody should have to worry about things like this while enjoying life

    A sickening and disgusting act, just donated.
    The call for blood donors is so important at times like this, i think type O+ is the most common and can be used on everyone?, so if you can blood is an important donation as money right now

    Very unfortunate what happened, a disturbed mind. It's unpleasant to think about how many families and friends are in pain right now.

    Wish I could donate some blood to save a family from grief.
