Last Saturday, at Flint Fight Fest, an unregulated amateur MMA show in Flint, Michigan, a brawl broke out in the cage, and then spectators began pouring over the top bar to join in. Eventually the Flint Police Department stepped in and restored order. 

Occurences like this are an embarassment to the sport and everyone invloved, and highlight the need for the regulation of amateur MMA in Michigan.

A UGer attended the event, and provided further details.

So it pretty much went like this. The two guys in cage fight and the one guy grabs the mic after the fight like they always allow the winner too. He starts bad mouthing some dude who is ducking him, when all the sudden the guy who is being bad mouthed's friend who also fights gets into the cage to defend his friend on the mic(no reason this should have been allowed) they get face to face and the guy let's a n-bomb go and that's where you see the video pick up.

The "team" in question is Team Savage. They are a ammy mma gym and known locally around. Never have had I seen anyone have problems with these guys up until that night. I think much less of all of them now and a good portion of the ammy promotions have decided on a temporary suspension of having any team savage member compete but unfortunately not all the promotions agreed on this. We don't have ammy sanctioned yet so there will be no form of formal punishment although 99% of us agree there should be.

Alot of things went wrong that night. Too many people allowed in the cage at once. The stupid guy being allowed to come into the cage and grab the mic. So many things to count.

It was actually worse than what you see in the video. There was fighting all over the place and they destroyed the temple not once but twice. The police started using pepper spray and shit and people obviously who had nothing to do with anything got sprayed. Ring girls had beer thrown on them. Announcer and Ref got jumped. It was awful.

I didn't know Michigan was in Brazil.

Best part of that vid is the judge just sitting watching at cageside.

I support amateur MMA being regulated in MI, but I don't think this being an unregulated event had much to do with what happened. Phone Post

 That is correct. However, everyone in the Strikeforce Brawl was penalized. Here, there will be nothing but a black eye for MMA, with no repercussions. That does not sit well with me.

Further, given the mandated security at regulated events, this kind of thing is, while obviously not impossible, is less likely at least.

Is this something that the commission could look at when licensing fighters for regulated events? For instance, I'm assuming that while this was a unregulated event, there was still a list of fights/fighters scheduled for the event that night. Is that something the commission could look at and use for determining whether a fighter gets licensed?

This was another recent amateur "MMA" card. Promoter did not want to pay cage guy up front so no cage. They "improvised" as you can see!

Only good thing about Flint is seeing it in your rear view mirror as you leave. Whole town needs bulldozed.

A riot ? haha, maybe the poster of this has never seen a RIOT before...idk, but that was not a riot, that was just a brawl

..and then it ended in a couple seconds, still no good for MMA but in no way is that a riot

The best thing we can do is refuse to support these types of events. Don't go to them. Don't fight for them. Penalize the people who do. Otherwise they'll continue.

For sure some more security could have stopped this, when people see 1 person able to jump the cage and join in, then whose to stop the next 10? The Strikeforce brawl occurred from people already being in the cage. This is a whole other level with fans storming the cage. I totally agree this doesn't sit well with me either.
