The URCC, the Philippines' top MMA promotion, hosted URCC Baguio 3: "Invasion" this past weekend. It had a good line-up of fights, but as you can see pictured above, most of the attention was stolen by a scuffle.

Razi Jabbari was already banned from competing in the Rizal Sports Complex in Manila for getting in a fight against a sports official a while back. The Iranian was still given another chance to put that all in the past, as the URCC gave him a shot against undefeated lightweight prospect, Honorio Banario of Team Lakay Wushu. Things didn't go his way though, as the Wushu expert had him mounted early, making him tap to strikes a minute and a half into their bout. The referee, Joey Lapiten, stopped the bout, and when he asked the fighters to shake hands after the bout, Jabbari lived up to his reputation and started cursing at him. Things escalated from there. Jabarri assaulted the referee, then a few moments later, Alvin Aguilar, the URCC founder and promoter who also happens to be a BJJ black belt, stepped into the ring and choked out Jabbari to end all the chaos.

Just Glad this didn't happen in the states, we deff don't need another reason for the main stream media to point it at say why were not a real sport. Sounds like pro wrestling with what happened in that promotion.

Now I can see why the first international TUF is slated to be in the Phillipines! Even the owner of the nation's biggest MMA promotion is a BJJ Black Belt! Can you imagine if Dana White subbed Paul Daley when he swung at Kos after their fight? Lol

HAHA! What a classic day for MMA. Not ONLY do you lose very decisively - not ONLY do you tap to strikes - not ONLY do you sit like a lost kid for a minute then get up and throw your toys out the cot - but ON TOP of all of that ... A fight promoter chokes you out. Someone needs to go back to working at McD's.

Looked like the ref was handling him anyway.

LOL! Come on, you know Dana was scared when Daley took the shot at Koscheck. He probably ordered Lesnar, Wanderlei, Anderson, Shogun, and Cain to surround him and keep him protected!

Kiddin, kiddin. Now that I think about it, I seriously wish that the boxing match would have happened between Dana and Tito. Man, that would have just been pure brilliance. Would be hilarious if Dana ended up being the one to knock Tito out cold.
