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.
BJJ Stars promoter Fernando Lopes told MMAFighting.com 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.”
