It Ain’t Chemo, a non-profit organization out of Las Vegas that directly supplies cancer patients with comfort items, advice, and emotional support, is hosting an MMA celebrity auction at the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay following the UFC 143 weigh-in.
Former and current UFC fighters Randy Couture, Chuck LIddell, Forrest Griffin, Martin Kampann, Clay Guida, and Kyle Kingsbury will be auctioned off in an effort to raise funds towards helping those undergoing chemotherapy treatment. In addition, UFC ring girl Chandella Powell, ring girls Natasha Wicks and Stephanie Cook, and fighters Jay Heiron, Michele Gutierrez, and Ryan Couture will be auctioned off.
Winners of the auction will have dinner with their dates at Fogo de Chao immediately following the auction. The festivities begin Friday, Feb. 3, at 5 p.m. and entry at the door is $15.
It Ain’t Chemo was founded by cancer survivor Kevin Hoyt. With permission from their physicians, Hoyt personally visits chemotherapy patients and brings blankets, vitamins, books, movies and advice on dealing with cancer treatment side effects.
