Video: Competitor Attacks Fans During Match at BJJ Stars Event in Sao Paulo

By Tristen Critchfield Feb 24, 2019

An ugly melee ensued at a BJJ Stars event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, when Erberth Santos rushed into the crowd to incite a brawl just moments after suffering an apparent knee injury during a match against Felipe Pena.

Shortly after a doctor came to check on Santos’ knee, the competitor appeared to begin arguing with someone in the audience before rushing into the crowd to attack a fan. Shortly thereafter, Santos, a multiple-time champion in IBJFF competition, can be seen running across the mat to attack more people on the other side of the venue.

BJJ Stars promoter Fernando Lopes told that Santos has been banned from competing for the promotion. Pena was declared the winner of the match.

“He was provoked by someone in the crowd, who was cheering for Felipe or against him,” Lopes said. “I’m a black belt for 21 years and an athlete has to be a black belt on and off the mat to deserve a black belt in my team. I wouldn’t give a blue belt to an irresponsible man who fights in the street.”
