Last night, hardcore MMA fans tuned into to watch CamSoda Legends, the first MMA event to be streamed live on a pornography site. Yes, you read that correctly.
This card was incredibly memorable for a number of reasons, from the closet-sized cage, to the profanity-spewing cage announcer, to the fact that viewers could “tip” fighters during their bouts. And then, of course, there was the cage-side brawl between top UFC welterweight Colby Covington and MMA cult hero “Felony” Charles Bennett.
This altercation allegedly began when Covington started getting at it with another UFC welterweight in “Platinum” Mike Perry. Somewhere along the line, Felony then got involved, and actually punched Covington. Maybe he was mad because Covington spoiled the new Avengers movie on Twitter. Needless to say, Covington responded in kind.
See Covington and Felony’s cage-side collision in the video above (Note: contrary to the tongue-in-cheek caption accompanying the video, nobody was hurt in this skirmish and no charges are being pursued).
You can also view the madness from another angle below, in video captured by UFC lightweight Nik Lentz.
And lastly, here’s what Mike Perry had to say about the ordeal:

Felony, who used to be known as Krazy Horse, fought Bruce Lutchmedial in the CamSoda legends co-main event, and lost a unanimous decision.
The card was headlined by a heavyweight tilt between former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight Alex Nicholson, and former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez. Nicholson won this fight with first-round punches, prompting the announcer to go on a profanity-laced tirade about how he deserved to be fighting in the UFC. It was glorious.
What do you think of confrontation between Colby Covington and “Felony” Charles Bennett?
