MANILA, Philippines – Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight contender Mark Munoz has joined hands with the Filipino-American community as well as the world in helping survivors of super Typhoon Yolanda by holding a fundraiser in the United States early next year.

Munoz, known as “The Filipino Wrecking Machine,” pledged to donate all the proceeds of the Mark Munoz Wrestling Seminar dubbed as a “Fundraiser for Typhoon Yolanda” on January 11, 2014 at 401 California Ave., San Francisco in California.

“The talk about super typhoon Yolanda in the media has decreased, but the rebuilding efforts in the Visayas is ongoing,” said Munoz on his official website Friday.

“This holiday season I am giving all the proceeds of my Jan 11 MMA Wrestling seminar and event shirt to Typhoon Yolanda survivors.

“Like me, you too can help families in the Philippines rebuild,” he added.

The site indicated that the MMA wrestling seminar is set from 9 to 11 a.m., which is worth $80, while the wrestling (K-college) session is from 1 to 4 p.m., which will cost participants $40.
