Forget the aftermath of UFC 229, there’s another post-fight brawl that’s going viral.
‘The First Fight’
The co-main event of BRAVE CF 57 would feature not just one, but two fights. Mohammad Fakhreddine would meet Mohamed Said Maalem for the light heavyweight championship. Fakhreddine would KO Maalem in round 2. What followed the result, would be much crazier than the finish.
Brawl Breaks Out
Adding some salt to the wound, Fakhreddine would flip off Maleem’s team cageside. The middle finger from the champion would cause the cornerman to lose his mind. The cornerman would jump the cage, trying to get back at Fakhreddine. Things would get physical between Maleem’s cornerman and team Fakhreddine, as they charged each other.
Fakhreddine’s cornerman would also do his part, trying to prevent the opposing cornerman from entering the cage. Referee Aaron Wallace would carry away the champion from Maleem’s cornerman. After getting him to the opposite side of the cage, the ref would let him go, only to have Fakhreddine go at him again.
Fakhreddine would run at the cornerman, swinging wildly while the officials try to separate them. Referee Aaron Wallace would get ahold of both Fakhreddine and his teammate, pushing both of them back to the other side of the cage. Let it be known that Wallace doesn’t skip arm day, because it took quite a bit of strength to control not one, but two men.
