Multi-time IBJJF champion Erberth Santos just gave Khabib Nurmagomedov a run for his money in post-bout antics. During a BJJ Stars event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Santos suffered an apparent knee injury. However, after tending to his knee for a few moments, Santos jumped to his feet and rushed towards the crowd.
He proceeded to attack a fan, which sparked an all-out war. Once things calmed down a bit, Santos sprinted across the mat to attack another fan. Check out the madness here:
BJJ Stars promoter Fernando Lopes spoke to MMA Fighting after the show, explaining what set Santos off, and revealed he is now banned from the promotion:
“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 on my team. I wouldn’t give a blue belt to an irresponsible man who fights in the street.”
