UFC president Dana White is not bothered by how the ugly brawl between fans in the stands at UFC Mexico.

It’s not as bad as it looks

In a short video clip now circulating online, a massive brawl broke out just after the main card’s opener between Manuel Torres and Chris Duncan. Several people were throwing punches and a huge guy could be seen knocking out a fellow fan with a brutal left hook.

When asked about it in his post-fight presser, White said it wasn’t as bad as it appears to be. However, the UFC boss admitted that it was crazy, especially the fact that no security intervened to stop the fight.

“The fight in the crowd doesn’t look good for the UFC? That never happens. That literally never happens,” White told reporters. “It happened here in Mexico City. The crazy thing about that fight, when that fight broke out, it felt like it kept going forever. So I ran over there and was watching it. Nobody stopped it. I was waiting for security to come in. They just let them go until it was over.”

“That was one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. I don’t think it’s a bad look for the UFC. It happened and that was the end of that. I think after everybody saw the end of that sh*t, nobody else wanted to try that again. No security. The fight just went on until it was over. I’ve never seen any sh*t like that in my life. Crazy!,” he continued.

UFC Mexico was a hit

It’s easy to see why White thinks the brawl is not a bad thing as it only goes to show how UFC Mexico got people engaged. According to the UFC head honcho, UFC Mexico was a sold-out event with a gate total of 21,546.

UFC Mexico was the promotion’s first trip back to the country since the pandemic in 2020. Ahead of the event, the UFC has officially opened a Performance Institute (UFC P.I.) in Mexico City and White is looking forward to doing more events in Mexico in the future.
