Canadian Fighter Mike Malott’s debut into the UFC couldn’t have been more successful on Saturday. The Ontario fighter and veteran welterweight Mickey Gall battled in a wild flurry of punches.

In a beautiful, heartwarming display the Canadian UFC champ took on another opponent last night. Malott asked the viewers in joining him helping him fight an even greater battle. Malott, whose friends’ 15 year old daughter is battling with stage 3 lymphoma.

Malott was the lowest paid fighter on the card and took home $10,000 for his impressive win which he immediately donated to Joey Rodriguez is the Head Boxing Coach for Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, California. He directed the UFC fans to his Instagram account where the overnight Canadian hero said others could make a donation too.
