Bader and his teammates from Power MMA & Fitness will hold a charity event at Rawhide at the Wild Horse Pass Casino and Resort in Chandler, AZ, including a celebrity blackjack tournament and live band.

Several top UFC fighters are expected to attend including Bader, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, Gray Maynard, Chris Weidman, Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold and more.
