UFC rocked by crazy backstage brawl after frightening KO

On the heels of knocking out opponent Darren Till in UFC London’s main event on Saturday, Jorge Masvidal attempted to do the same to welterweight champ Leon Edwards backstage.

The scuffle was caught on camera, as Masvidal left mid-interview with ESPN+ reporter Laura Sanko to throw punches.

Edwards reportedly walked away with a cut above his eye.

There’s no word yet on potential repercussions, financial or otherwise.
