Let’s make this abundantly clear. If a brawl occurred stateside at an MMA event, Karyn Bryant of MMAHeat, Ben Fowlkes of MMAFighting, and Doc Mason from MMAHawaii will lop heads off with double-edge battle axes and bathe in the blood of their opposition. Erik Fontanez from MMAWeekly, not so much. He’ll find an excuse not to get involved in the media-wide throwdown. I could see Ariel Helwani throwing a couple of soccer kicks in the scrum when no one is looking. Don’t let the calm demeanor deceive you, Ariel is a pretty scrappy dude. As far as Ron Kruck from Inside MMA, let’s just say at the end of the carnage, he will undoubtedly be the last man standing.
Last weekend at ‘Cro Cop Final Fight’ in Zagreb, Croatia, a small amount of ruckus occurred directly on press row. According to our buds at MMAnews.pl, two drunk guys crept in the press row without media credentials. A security guard tried to get them them to leave, but they ignored him. A second security guard showed up but once again they disregarded the ominous presence of press row authority. When even more security arrived, one of the guys headbutted a security guard, and then the ruckus ensued.
