A in cage interview at an MMA event got out of hand and led to a wild out of control brawl on Christmas Eve in Moscow.

At Thursday's AMC Fight Nights Global: Winter Cup event in Moscow, a post-fight interview between Magomed Ismailov and Vladimir Mineev turned violent and led to a wild multi-man brawl. It all started when a face-off escalated from a feined punch to a real one. Next thing you know, a sea of bodies infiltrated the cage. Punches and kicks to downed participants were thrown as security tried to regain control.
Through shakily translated Russian posts, it appears the interview was conducted to set up a rematch between Mineev and Ismailov,. Unfortunately, it got wildly out of hand. Mineev and Ismailov fought to a draw in 2018 at Fight Nights Global 90 in a wild main event, so even without these antics this fight would've been highly anticipated.
