Eyewitness Recounts Stabbing at UFC 169
While UFC 169 featured a plethora of fights, one of the most dangerous actually took place in the stands. As previously reported, multiple audience members were stabbed during a fight in the arena. Angel Pereira was arrested for the incident on multiple charges, including aggravated assault and weapons charges. An anonymous eye-witness told Bloody Elbow the story from his prospective, stating:
Next thing you know the boyfriend stood up and started yelling at them. The two guys got up out of their seats and then (Pereira) swung at them. All 3 started fighting with the girlfriend in the middle. Security ran down and grabbed the thug. That is when I noticed his girlfriend’s face was slashed open and one of the two guy’s hands was cut. They said he had a knife.
Scrary stuff you don’t expect when going to your local UFC card.
