    Apparently his family needs help with things. These guys kill themselves for our entertainment and they don't make enough money to handle these types of events.

    Please support them in their time of need.

    It goes straight to his family

    Reading that makes me sad; cool to see fellow buckeye great Tommy Rowlands pledging 100 towards the cause.

    Yeah, people really think that these guys are rich. This is why fighters are complaining about Reebok. This is why people fight for Fighter pay to be better.

    These guys need to be protected and paid better. They are elite. The elite of elite. Elite workers should get elite paychecks. It's that simple.

    I usually hate these things, but for the Monster I'll be donating.

    I don't understand your actual question.

    The money is going straight to the family; I have no idea if gofundme takes a small cut of the earnings if that is what you are asking?

    Sucks to hear. Monster never really got that big payday.
    I *think* he's making a joke - asking if it will fund him, Jay philips.

    I hate being mister suspicious of everything but why are they asking for 50,000 dollars ? A funeral is no more than 15,000 and the doctor bills they can go ahead and not worry about those because you can't collect from somebody has has passed away so the state will get that bill.

    Of course they do: "GoFundMe will deduct a 5% fee from each donation that you receive. A small processing fee of about 3% will also be deducted."

    I have just never heard of Gofundme and it looks a bit generic but I went to the website it looks somewhat legit I am just wondering why they are asking for 50,000 dollars and I looked at every donation and not one single fighter has sent any money yet I find that a bit strange.

    15K for a funeral and money to help for the adjustment period i'd assume due to him no longer bringing home a source of income.

    No one; but no one is forcing people to donate to anybody. If someone brought you joy though and they are struggling it doesn't hurt to give a little bit if you can afford to do it.

    Very sad. RIP.

    Life insurance is like $10-$20 a month. Its worth it not to be a burden when you pass. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

    Not sure what his family situation was like but it's possible he was the only breadwinner of the household. I am just assuming he had a wife and kids.

    Terrible situation all around.

    For all the people who think I am making a joke I am not making a joke its just when it comes to money I want to know where its going why its going etc. I have lost a lot of family members and nobody give us a dime so I need to know why this family needs 50,000 dollars

    I agree with Jay philips. Weird thing all around. If you take steroids like candy you should be prepared to die at a young age. Is it actually 15 grand to bury someone? Is the coffin made of gold?
