Let's help Jason Thacker

Chuck Mindenhall's piece on Jason Thacker and his livelihood tells a sad story of an individual dealt a bad hand in the fallout of arguably mixed martial arts' greatest turning point, The Ultimate Fighter Season One.

While Thacker may or may not have been suitably qualified to perform on the show, the details of his treatment in the aftermath speak to the unfortunate ways that some people treat one another.

Without a car, a phone, or a friend, Jason now dedicates his life to supporting his unwell family.

Together, let's make a small gesture to someone in their time of need, and demonstrate the respect for our fellow man/woman that martial arts has represented since its inception.
