Footage of the Jeremy Stephens and Yair Rodriguez out-of-cage altercation has been published, with IndiscutidoLA being the ones to acquire it.
The pair were the main event in last Saturday night’s UFC event in Mexico City, only for the fight to be ruled a no contest after an early eye poke meant Stephens couldn’t continue.
In the video, Rodriguez and Stephens are seen talking calmly, with Stephens saying ‘run it back’ before Rodriguez asks him ‘but what happened?’ to which Stephens responds with a violent shove.
From there, Rodriguez is heard saying, “You look like a fucking pussy, bro. You’re going to have to live with that for the rest of your fucking life. You fucking pussy. You’re going to have to live with that for the rest of your fucking life, pussy. Not me. I’m fine, motherfucker.”
Stephens then says, “Real easy to poke somebody in the eye. Swear to god, call Sean [Shelby], run it back. … You poked me in the eye, faggot.”
“Faggot, I couldn’t see fucking shit in my fight with Frankie Edgar,” Rodriguez says.
The pair are then separated, with Stephens saying “I’ll see you soon, motherfucker.”
It’s believed the UFC are considering booking the pair in an immediate rematch. It seems if they did, there would be plenty of spice to go along with it.
