UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar and his family were left homeless after a fire destroyed their home.
The deadly flame tore the Bonnars apart Las Vegas home on Monday and burned the structure to pieces.
The Henderson Fire Department managed to bring the fire under control in less than an hour, but the damage was already done.
In a video showing the damage to his family home, Bonnar said: “No more casa.
“Burned to the ground, everything lost in it. Everything in it.”
However, Bonnar was able to retrieve the gloves he wore in his historic Ultimate Fighter Season 1 final showdown with Forrest Griffin and other memorabilia.
He continued: “But I just climbed in through the window and cut both my shins open. A pile of broken glass.”
“And look what I’ve got, man. Gloves from Forrest’s fight, [an Ultimate Fighter] First season shirt signed by everyone.”
Bonnar then sent messages of support to his TUF season 1 competitors.
He said: “It’s been a tough year for the first season, man. Hold on [Chris] Life. Hold on, Diego [Sanchez].

“You were great the other day by the way, so proud of yourself.
“Damned [Mike] Swick, defeat that damn cancer.
“I almost kicked the bucket earlier. This year was a damn shitty year for me too.”
Luckily, no one was injured in the fire and no medical assistance was required.
Bonnar’s wife Andrea said of the tragedy on Facebook: “We lost everything.”
Bonnar, TUF Season 1 runner-up, was eliminated mixed martial arts after a first-round TKO loss to Anderson Silva in 2012.
But he returned to the cage two years later Bellator 131, where he suffered a split decision loss to Tito Ortiz.
The American psycho closed the book on his professional MMA career for the second and final time shortly after losing to his peer ufc Great.
