No matter how composed a fighter is, he can, sometimes, lose control of his temper. If this happens, things normally get out of hand.
So when a professional MMA fighter lost his patience on a heckling fan, his technical knock out victory did not prevent him from going for an attack.
Confronting a Fan
For most fans, mixed martial artists are more than just fighters. They treat them as entertainers too, providing a good source of entertainment in a form of combat sports.
To the delight of fans, the crowd will roar with cheers. But to their dismay, they will give you a bevvy of boos. But when a fan tried to get into a fighter’s nerve at a professional bout in Detroit, he received an unexpected response from the mixed martial artist.
After clinching the victory over Dylan Carpenter via technical knockout, Tyler Meadows jumped off the fence and stormed a heckling fan in the crowd. As he confronted the spectator, who turned out to be a co-fighter, a fight sparked between the two.
Watch it in the video below:
Not the First Time
Tyler Meadows attacking a fan was not the first time a fighter has to leap over the fence to confront someone. The famous Irish star Conor McGregor did the same against a referee in a match at Bellator 187.
The Notorious was in attendance at the said event to support his pal, Charlie Ward. His friend went on to knock out his opponent John Redmond. Moments after the victory, McGregor stormed into the cage, which is a clear violation of the rules.
Referee Marc Goddard attempted to get McGregor outside the cage but an altercation sparked between them.
