Report: Edgar's manager punched Henderson's manager in the face

source: The Underground

There was a brief off-camera disturbance at the UFC 150 post-fight press conference, that White ran to check out, and then reported was not a big deal.

Apparently, after Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar got done fighting, their managers started fighting. Ben Henderson is managed by Malki Kawa, Frankie Edgar by Ali Abdel-Aziz.

Ariel Helwani tweeted the story, although Kawa said he got it wrong.

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
If you're wondering what the brouhaha was during the presser, I'm told Frankie's mgr @alidominance and Bendo's mgr @malkikawa got into a scuffle. Not sure who won, but I'm told it was the opposite of the main event, if you catch my drift. For whatever it's worth, Ali and his team say he punched Malki in the face. It seems like they didn't like what he had to say after the main event, although, I'm not quite sure what was said.

Kawa contradicted Helwani's tweet.

Random trivia - he's also Rahm Emanuel's brother. Powerful family.

I'm going to say that you clearly had no clue when you wrote your original post.

The funniest part of your nerd-rage was the part where you called that shitty sparring session a 'hell of fight'!Good one!

I'm glad Malki Kawa got punched in the face. I hope he's got a nice bruise today to remind of him of what happened.

 I have heard it was not a punch more of a bitch slap, this is more humilating than a punch if less damaging.
