Charity Auction: UFC 96 Autographed Event Poster

MMA Fighter Jason Day is doing this auction on Ebay. Here is his description. Help out if you can. It is for a good cause.

This poster is signed by every fighter that fought on UFC 96 in Columbus Ohio. There are only 125 in existence. It comes with an authentication card saying it is number 121 out of 125. The list of autographs on this poster are as follows:

Rampage Jackson, Keith Jardine, Gabriel Gonzaga, Shane Carwin, Pete Sell, Matt Brown, Matt Hamill, Mark Munoz, Gray Maynard, Jim Miller, Tamdam McCrory, Ryan Madigan, Kendall Grove, Tim Boetsch, Jason Brilz, Branden Vera, Mike Patt, Aaron Riley, Shane Nelson and the most prized of course my own, Jason Day.

The proceeds of this auction will go directly to a charity for a training partner and friend of mine who is fighting to get his life back. Igor Vasiljevic who trains with me at BDB martial arts in Calgary was stabbed at a concert here in Calgary over a month ago. This brutal and unwarranted attack has made Igor fight for life and was in a coma for 3 weeks. Now he is recovering from his physical and mental injuries and he will need a lot of support. The therapy to recover from this incident will be very expensive and he only has a short time from to try to get back as much of his life as possible.
Every cent from this poster will go to the charity for Igor.
This is in fact a legit cause and the poster is authentic, each fighter gets a copy signed by everyone after each of their fights in the UFC. This is the one I received from my last fight in the UFC. If you have any concerns or doubt about its origin please feel free to email me directly.
