Brandon Moreno was forced to flee the arena in Brazil after beating home favourite Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 283, shocking footage has revealed.
The Mexican triumphed in the lion’s den in Rio de Janeiro in the early hours of Sunday morning UK time, winning by TKO after doctors called off the fight due to Figueiredo’s eye being unable to open.
And Moreno, who reclaimed the unified flyweight title as a result, had to sprint out of the venue flanked by security to avoid reprisals from furious fans.
Video released on social media site Instagram shows Moreno being hurriedly ushered out of the arena with beer cups and other objects raining down on him as some in the crowd made their frustration known with the result.
In the clip, already liked more than 100,000 times, the commentator says: ‘And now he (Moreno) is getting ushered out of the arena… oh my God, oh my God!’
