As noted by Caposa above, post-fight brawls in Russia are nothing new. With that said, this particular scuffle at R3 involved a number of opposing team members and included the participation of some fans who leaped the cage wall.
This is not the first time an insane brawl has occurred inside the cage at a mixed martial arts event. The most recent of which took place at UFC 229 in October of 2018, immediately following Khabib Nurmagomedov’s submission victory over Conor McGregor.
Another notable brawl that fight fans will remember well took place under the Strikeforce banner in April of 2010 when Nick Diaz, Jake Shields and crew went after Jason Miller.
