And you thought the UFC 229 brawl following the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor fight was a wild scene. Get a load of this.
This past weekend at a German MMA Championship event in Hamburg, chaos erupted after a referee failed to notice one fighter’s corner threw in the towel.
Roughly 2 minutes into the fourth round of their featherweight title fight, Omer Solmaz gained top control and began to unleash brutal ground-and-pound on Felix Schiffarth, whose corner had seen enough. Seconds later, they threw in the towel, only the referee wasn’t in position to see it and allowed the fight to continue.
That’s when members of Schiffarth’s team took matters into their own hands and jumped the fence to stop the action. One man, wearing red shoes, pushes the referee onto the fighters; another man charges from across the cage to stop him.

From there, the scene turns into pure madness as dozens of men enter the cage, and what initially appears to be an all-out brawl turns into a mosh pit-like celebration of Solmaz’s title win.
You can watch it all unfold in the video below beginning at the 2:40 mark.
