Island Fights 60 goes down tomorrow night in Columbus, Georgia live from The Columbus Civic Center and will air on UFC Fight Pass.
Before the fight however the testosterone was raging in fighter Bryant Panezo who faces Devin Paulk in the opening bout of the evening. Not sure as to why Panezo decided to throw his bathrobe in the face of his opponent after hitting the scale, but once he did all hell broke loose.
Fighters, coaches and Island Fights personnel including myself did our best and swooped in to gain control before anyone sustained any serious injuries.
I would like to think Mr. David Van Auken of Fight Bananas for capturing the action and allowing us to share.
