UFC fighter attacks man with singer in bar
#UFC #fighter #attacks #man #singer #bar Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
It seems that controversy and arguments are no stranger to the world of mixed martial arts. This week, UFC featherweight champion Ilia Topuria was reportedly involved in a bar fight in Spain. Security footage of the incident showed Topuria attacking a customer at the bar after being pushed twice by the man for no apparent reason. The altercation took place while Topuria was hanging out with Spanish singer and media star Omar Montes in the bar.
In the video, Topuria can be seen playing a retro arcade game with Montes when the unknown assailant approaches and pushes him. Despite this initial provocation, Topuria does not react until he is pushed a second time. At this point, the 25-year-old featherweight grabs the man by the shirt and shoves him against the wall before landing several punches.
After the footage was released, Montes issued a statement acknowledging his involvement in the incident and threatening action against those who leaked the CCTV footage. “We will take action after whoever released the fight video from the bar cameras,” Montes said in a statement (via ESPN Deportes’ Carlos Contreras Legaspi). “I’m really not like that, but I won’t stay with my arms crossed if they’re after my boyfriend. I apologize.”
It’s worth noting that this bar brawl comes just days after footage emerged of UFC President Dana White beating his wife during a New Year’s Eve party in Mexico. While it’s unclear what sparked the altercation between Topuria and the patron at the bar, things are certainly not looking good for the sport and its athletes.
As for Topuria, the Georgia-born Spaniard emerged victorious over Bryce Mitchell at UFC 282. The win improved his undefeated record to 13-0 and cemented his position as a future featherweight title contender. However, his involvement in that bar fight could dampen his rise in the UFC. It remains to be seen how the organization will deal with this incident and whether it will impact Topuria’s career.
