The proceeds will be used to assist veterans and their families.

Circa Resort & Casino in Las Vegas will host this year's Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation (XCGIF) Operation Knockout on November 19. ParaWerx, a cryptocurrency company, is the title sponsor for the MMA charity event and has partnered with XCGIF to help provide aid to veterans.

XCGIF is a charitable volunteer organization that raises funds to help those in need. The company works with “like-minded partners” and donates 100% of the money raised to fund aid for military veterans.

ParaWerx stated it is proud to collaborate with XCGIF in sponsoring this year’s Operation Knockout. Founder Lee Tolleson discussed the company’s motivation to partner with XCGIF and said he is excited about helping veterans and their families.

Tolleson commented: "With more than 30,000 US veteran suicides since 9/11, and an even higher number of veterans that are without shelter in the US on any given night; working with Randy Couture's foundation in helping veterans and their families was one of those incredibly easy decisions that didn't require any thought.”

Tolleson went on to add that helping men and women of the armed forces is a great opportunity for the company to give back to those who have served the country.

“I am hoping that with added support from ParaWerx in sponsoring this event, XCGIF can bring more desperately needed assistance to the service men and women that gave us so much,” Tolleson said.

Operation Knockout is an annual MMA charity event. The first tournament was in 2010. The event “showcases the best up-and-coming amateur MMA athletes” from both Xtreme Couture MMA and from around the US.
