Ten-time UFC vet Bryan Caraway has opened a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his mother’s funeral.

"My mother passed away and the funeral homes are brutal," wrote Caraway on his social network. "I had no idea how expensive they are and how much the gouge hurting people. My momma means the world to me and was the strongest/toughest person I know. She has a heart of gold and only saw the good in people. She was a mom to so many people and would give or do anything to help you. I'm completely devastated and can barely handle this. She did so much for everyone else, I just want her to have the best memorial and celebrate her life. I absolutely hate posting this in every way and hate asking for help but if you can donate or share it would mean so so much to me. Thank you everyone, I love you all. P.S. Also I'm selling pretty much everything or anything to pay but the funeral home wants and needs the money now. I'm also left in charge of taking care of my disabled dad and handicapped nephew."

The funeral parlors are some of the most disgusting people in the world.

Bryan should have sold the pictures that got 'leaked' on how bad she fucked him over.

I'm sorry but fuck off with the begging for money.  Good on you if you donate but to me this is embarrassing.  Be a man stop begging for free stuff.

Don’t knock a man when he’s down. There’s time and a place for opinions and this isn’t one of them.

I'm not knocking a man when hes down.  I dont respect begging money from strangers, if it's too expensive cremate her like most people are forced to do

While I do agree it’s wrong time wrong place.

Of course funerals aren’t cheap. These people are professionals just like anyone else...you can’t just pull in any idiot off the street to prepare a body. Funeral homes have bills to pay too. 
 

I hope it all works out for him.

Grew up in funeral home and was 3rd generation licensed funeral director/embalmer for 10 years.

 

Thanks to forlks crying about the cost the Federal Trade Commission got involved back in the 80s and, just like everything else the government gets involved with, the cost skyrocketed. Used to be the cost on the casket covered EVERYTHING. Post FTC everything has to be itemized and individually charged for.

 

Funeral homes are expensive because of the overhead and bullshit expenses involved in keeping the doors open.

 

Most homes really only profit from the mark up on the casket, which you can buy online if you want.

Has Mischa Tate donated yet ?

 

For anyone inclined to shit on Miesha Tate, Caraway's mom would have been dead several years earlier if it wasn't for Miesha.

FRAT: Caraway's mother was severely asthmatic. She collapsed and Miesha saved her by taking puffs from her inhaler and then performing CPR on her.

Dude I’m completely with you on that. 
 

With what he’s going through and maybe the time for opinion is not right, but still. 
 

But 95% of GFM’s I can’t stand. This is one of them. Looking at his Instagram of all his toys and trips...you can’t srounge up 10-15k? The bank won’t give you a loan or line of credit? So many options for this guy and he resorts to begging strangers. I’ll never understand. Maybe I’m heartless, I don’t think so though. I truly feel for him in a terrible time in his life, and maybe you can chalk it up to not thinking straight in a trying time.

I think this just shows how bad the UFC pay scale is. This guy was top 10 for a long time and fought many fights. He doesn't have enough money to bury his mother because hes been fighting for our entertainment for peanuts. The least you could do is keep comments like that out of here.

I bet he wishes he made weight now cause that cost him 20k. 

Its absolutely pathetic he's begging strangers to help bury his mum. I earn fuck all and wouldn't stoop so low.

The guy posts about his done up corvette, with custom wheels and this and that, his full size Polaris side by side, dirt bikes, Harley and travelling all over the world. 
 

And he’s unable to sell one of those items? Take a loan or a line of credit? Or finance the funeral bill either through the funeral home or a bank? Now I’m all for UFC fighters making way more but this sounds like a case of a guy whose financed all his toys and mismanaged his moneys and now a terrible tragedy has happened and has no other means or wants other then to start a GFM page. I dunno but that just irks me man.

Thats what I was gonna say. Sell a toy or two, dont beg people who cant afford those in the first place.

Why don’t you just STFU .. it’s not like he’s personally asking ‘ you’ for a donation..
