After outclassing Edson Barboza on his way to a dominant unanimous decision victory at UFC 272, Bryce Mitchell has vowed to spend half of his fight purse on buying AR-15s for kids. The Arkansas native revealed that a crate of semi-automatic, air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine-fed rifles will go to Arkansas children so they can defend themselves when Russia invades US .
Mitchell told The Reporters in his post-fight interview at UFC 272:
“For ten years, y’all have had my back and I ain’t done a thing for y’all. I’m about to show y’all that I’m not just good at hurting people and drilling my nutsack in half, I can help people, too. As we and Alex Jones all know, our government orchestrates mass shootings at schools. Half of my purse, $45,000, is going towards supplying children with vital AR-15s, a lightweight rifle with high-velocity, lightweight, small-caliber cartridges. We – that is, my guns and I – will provide them with protection. And I know that these kids would rather die before they hand our land over and these guns, with their attractive carrying handle and rear sight assembly on top of the receiver, over to the Russians.”
In a display of generosity, UFC oligarch Dana White has told Mitchell to keep the money and committed to paying for the AR-15s himself. Mitchell said he will still donate a dozen M67 fragmentation grenades.
