At the UFC 207 early morning weigh-ins Thursday morning, Jeremy Stephens and Cody Garbrandt were nearly involved in a brawl backstage.

Garbrandt of course was in attendance hitting the scales for his UFC 207 co-main event scrap with bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. While Stephens is not fighting at the event, he is one of Cruz’ teammates.

According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, Stephens went after Garbrandt backstage while UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes was hitting the scales.

While no footage of the actual incident has surfaced, you can hear things getting heated backstage in the background of Nunes’ weigh-in video as security guards are quick to rush out the door to handle the situation.
