UFC welterweight and all-around sporting legend, Renzo Gracie was arrested early this morning after allegedly beating up a nightclub bouncer.
Sherdog.com has the inside scoop on the story.
According to the witness, Gracie arrived at the club in a group of approximately seven men and immediately went to the front of the line.
Gracie then became involved in a confrontation with what the witness described as the doorman. Things escalated from there, as Gracie’s group allegedly squared off with a group of 1-Oak bouncers. According to the witness, Gracie at one point had the doorman in full mount, while another one of his group hit a different bouncer with a construction cone.
The fracas spilled into the street, with more punches being thrown.
