UFC President Dana White announced on Saturday that he had given his employees free tickets to see the movie “Sound of Freedom” — based on a true story about human trafficking.
White shared a video explaining that he had offered his staff the chance to see the film, and challenged other executives to do the same for their own employees. “YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE @SOFMovie2023,” White captioned the video he shared on Twitter.

“Hey, everybody, I’m Dana White,” he began. “There’s a new movie out called ‘The Sound of Freedom,’ and it’s about human trafficking. More importantly, it’s about the trafficking of children. This is a disgusting, horrific issue that’s happening all around the world, and it’s not getting better, it’s getting worse.”
“What I’m going to do, is I’m going to give any of my UFC employees that want to see this movie free tickets to go see it, and I would like to encourage other executives to do the same at their companies,” he continued.
White then shared video of actor Mel Gibson — who has been promoting the film from the beginning — explaining why he believed the movie was so important.
“One of the most disturbing problems in our world today is human trafficking, and particularly the trafficking of children,” Gibson said. “Now, the first step in eradicating this crime is awareness. Go see ‘Sound of Freedom.'”
The film stars Jim Caviezel – who played the role of Jesus in Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” — as Tim Ballard, a federal agent who quit his job to save a young girl from sex slavery in South America.
“After rescuing a young boy from ruthless child traffickers, a federal agent learns the boy’s sister is still captive and decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death,” a press release stated.
