Sarah Alpar (9-5, 0-1 UFC) launched a GoFundMe campaign six days ago to raise $ 30,000. The 30-year-old fighter of the UFC flyweight category in 2019 won a contract with the UFC through DWCS. She finished Shana Young in the second round and after 13 professional fights, she reached the world’s strongest MMA organization.
Her debut in September 2020 was not successful. Jessica-Rose Clark finished her by knockout 39 seconds before the end of the fight. Alpar had no luck contracting fights after that. She was supposed to fight on May 22, but her originally planned opponent Stephanie Egger had to cancel due to a coronavirus infection, and then her replacement opponent Lupita Godinez also canceled due to visa problems.
Sarah should have her next fight on September 18, 364 days after the fight against Clark. The 30-year-old fighter is going through hard days when it comes to finances and has therefore decided to launch an online campaign to raise donations.
"Help Sarah" Too Sweet " Alpar become UFC champion "is the name of her campaign in which she states: ''Hello everyone. I'm Sarah "Too Sweet" Alpar - fighter, barista, student, mother, and wife.
In 2019, I turned the opportunity at DWCS into a contract with the UFC. However, in my effort to get as good as possible, I need your financial help." "My goal is to raise $ 30,000 by December 1 this year so I can fully dedicate myself to coaching.
Great success requires more time and more dedication. Therefore, I am asking for your help! '', The fighter wrote, among other things.
Her goal was achieved long before the set date. Namely, Jake Paul paid her five thousand dollars, and the promotions were joined by the promotional house Triller Fight Club with an even more generous donation in the amount of 25 thousand dollars.
Only those donations completed her requested amount, but the total amount of collected donations is closer to the figure of 35 thousand dollars. Sarah Alpar described her reaction to the aforementioned donations. '' I got a message and I saw some kind of tick, and the message said, 'Jake Paul sent you a message.'
My reaction was ‘Does he know I even exist?’ ’Sarah Alpar said in an interview with MMA Fighting. The UFC fighter initially did not want to seek the help of foreigners. However, during the search for sponsors, she realized how bad her financial situation was and that asking for help was not such a bad idea.
'' I turned 30 and I don't know if it was a moment of midlife crisis or something else. I’m not sure what exactly the reason is, but I broke down in deciding I needed this kind of help. Time passes and I am getting older, what else can I do? '', Alpar described the reasons for launching the campaign.
