Miss USA hopeful challenges UFC stars

A Miss USA contestant walked into UFC Fight Night Las Vegas and instantly threw down a challenge to two UFC fighters.

No, it's not the start of a joke. It's actually for a very worthy cause on Memorial Day weekend.

Neely Fortune challenged UFC fighters Cub Swanson and Kelvin Gastelum to #22pushups, a campaign created by the organization 22Kill which is meant to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention.


Fortune, who will represent her home state of Vermont at the 2016 Miss USA Pageant June 5 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, was in attendance along with a few of her fellow competitors during Sunday's UFC Fight Night Almeida vs Garbrandt at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
