UFC light heavyweight Ryan Bader will hold a charity event this Saturday in Arizona to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.

The Wounded Warriors Project is a non-profit charity that helps veterans coming back from military service get back to work, helping their families, and serving their needs after a return to the United States from active duty.

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.

Tickets can be purchased through Power MMA & Fitness in Arizona by calling 480-632-9662 and more information can also be obtained by visiting the Facebook page for the event.
