  • The UFC 300 fan has apologized to Arman Tsarukyan for the punching incident
  • The fan is not planning to sue the UFC or anybody

The random fan who got involved in a physical altercation with Arman Tsarukyan has already apologized and swore not to sue the company.

No need for legal action

Tsarukyan made headlines for punching a fan as he walked his way to the cage at UFC 300. The said fan has been identified as Obed Ardon, who recently addressed the issue in an interview with Bloody Elbow.

According to Ardon, it was all his fault and “Ahalkalakets” just did what he had to. He formally apologized to Tsarukyan for flipping the dirty finger and more importantly, he is not suing the UFC or anybody for the incident.

“I will not sue. That never crossed my mind,” Ardon said. “My first thought was I hope I don’t get kicked out.”

“I’d like to apologize to Arman for provoking him by flipping him off,” he explained. “I was buzzing all day, and the moment got to me. It was my first time attending a live UFC event, and it was absolutely incredible. I’m glad the incident wasn’t as bad as it could have been.”

“I do want to make clear that I didn’t pull him towards me, yell out offensive words or anything of that nature. I flipped him off, nothing else. Congrats to Arman on a great performance and best of luck to him against whoever he fights for the title,” he added.

The boss was expecting it

Upon learning about what happened in his post-UFC 300 presser, UFC president Dana White said the incident will be addressed with the parties involved. White was expecting the fan to take legal actions against the UFC but fortunately, that is not the case now.

“You might not want to hang over the things and grab people when they’re walking out,” White said. “These guys are all f**king hyped up whatever. I’m sure we’re probably going to get sued. We’ll deal with that on Monday too.”

Tsarukyan has yet to comment or respond to the fan’s apology but from the way it looks, it appears that the issue is likely to be closed. As it stands, Tsarukyan is focused on recovering and is looking forward to fighting for the lightweight title next.
