The event will raise funds for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and will air on Spike TV.

Dana White had the following to say about the event…

“It’s always a great honor for us to entertain the men and women of the military by bringing them some great fights while raising money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
