(Video) UFC fans scrap in the audience wih no security interference in Mexico

In a surprising turn of events at UFC event in Mexico City, a passionate UFC fan found himself on the receiving end of a powerful left hand.

While the Arena CDMX played host to an impressive display of Mexican MMA talent on Saturday, the excitement spilled into the stands when a group of fans engaged in a huge brawl.

A chaotic mosh pit of punches erupted in one section as fans traded blows, forcefully grabbing each other’s clothing. In a disturbing video clip capturing the incident, multiple groups faced off with no security in sight to intervene.

In the midst of the chaos, a fan wearing a white top that seemed to have been ripped during the altercation found himself isolated. He became the unfortunate recipient of a left hook by a fan in black. The impact of the punch knocked him out, leaving him lying on the floor with his back against the ground.

Interestingly, the fan who delivered the knockout blow had already floored another spectator with his left hand just moments before. Meanwhile, other surrounding fans hastily moved chairs aside as the brawl continued to unfold.

This marked the UFC’s sixth event in Mexico City and the first in the past four-and-a-half years. Two of Mexico’s former UFC champions were in the main event of the promotion – former flyweight champion Brandon Moreno faced up against Brandon Royval in the headline bout.

The event showcased two former UFC champions from Mexico, with Brandon Moreno headlining against Brandon Royval.

In the co-main event, former interim featherweight champion Yair Rodriguez faced Brian Ortega. The two had previously squared off in 2022 at UFC Long Island, where an unfortunate shoulder injury to Ortega led to Rodriguez’s anticlimactic TKO victory.

But this time, Ortega ended up winning the bout against Rodriguez via submission.

Earlier in the week, the UFC celebrated the opening of its first Performance Institute in Mexico. Spanning 4,636 square meters, the UFC Performance Institute in Mexico City boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including a weight room, grappling floor, nutrition lab, and physical therapy.

UFC chief Dana White expressed his excitement, stating: “This has been a dream and goal of mine since 2001. To finally be here and walk the halls of the UFC Performance Institute in Mexico City is a monumental moment in the history of our sport.”
