Worthy himself was not surprised, and he knew when he landed the
shot it was all over.
Since the win, Worthy says he has received hundreds of text
messages and calls from family and friends saying they bet on him
and telling him how much he made. Now, “The Deathstar” wants
bettors to donate a percentage of the money they won to charity or
give food to homeless shelters to help out.
“People made mad money off me. In Pittsburgh, everyone was betting,
like my friends were betting two grand on me,” Worthy said to
Sherdog.com. “A lot of people made some stupid amount of money.
I’ve had texts saying they won thousands of dollars.
“I am going to pick a charity and tell people if they made a
certain amount of money donate like five percent or however much
they feel to this charity,” he continued. “I don’t need the money,
and I think I can do something to help people in need. I am big on
homeless people and want to help them. Just tell people to donate
money or food or shelters. To all my fans, please donate if you won
money off me.”
Worthy wants to use his platform in the UFC to help out others in
need and this is just the start of it, he says.
