Video: Brawl breaks out between Kevin Lee, Michael Chiesa at UFC Press Conference

All hell broke loose today at the UFC Press Conference after Kevin Lee started bringing up Michael Chiesa’s mother.

Chiesa and Lee brawled on stage at the UFC Summer Kickoff press conference Friday in Dallas.  The two will face off in the main event of UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25 in Oklahoma City. However, it seems things got started early with Lee throwing — and possibly landing — a punch on Chiesa up on stage.

“He’s gonna headline because of me,” Lee said. “After that, he’s going back to the prelims.  But I just hope he shows up, because I know his momma’s got tickets.”

Chiesa repied: “Don’t you ever talk about my f*cking mom. … I’m gonna smack the f*ck out of your right now, don’t you ever talk about my mom.”

Chiesa dropped the mic and ran over to Lee’s side of the stage.  Security held him back, but Lee approached and threw a right hand over a security guard’s shoulder.  After that, they were separated.

Check out the brawl happen below in the video from UFC on Fox.

It was all a mess at the Stare-downs:

Security escorted both men from the stage.  The two were brought back later for a staredown and though they jawed back and forth, nothing physical came of it. Lee and Chiesa are two of the top lightweight fighters in the UFC.
