UFC 224 available for order on Amazon Prime (Prime Video PPV)
Sucker Punch Entertainment’s Brian Butler-Au and several unidentified Ultimate Fighting Championship employees were robbed at gunpoint Friday in UFC 224 host city Rio de Janeiro, according to Dana White.
The group was relaxing at a table near the beach as the alleged robbery occurred just hours before weigh-ins began on Friday morning. At this time, it is not believed that any fighters were involved in the incident. ESPN's Brett Okamoto talked to White, who revealed that employees had their wallets, passports and phones stolen. Police arrived on the scene shortly after the incident occurred. No injuries have been reported.
Just spoke to UFC president Dana White about an incident that is apparently ongoing right now in Brazil. White was just told several employees and others associated with UFC 224 were held up at gunpoint near the host hotel in Rio. No one hurt. Police involved now.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) May 11, 2018
