At UFC 285, a bizarre scene unfolded backstage when a fan attempted to fight Ian Garry. The incident occurred after Garry had just won his fight against Austin Hubbard.
The fan, who has not been identified, was seen walking up to Garry and attempting to start a fight. Garry, however, was not interested in engaging in a physical altercation and instead tried to talk the fan down.
Garry was heard saying, “What are you doing? What’s going on?” The fan then proceeded to throw a punch at Garry, which he was able to dodge.
Garry then attempted to de-escalate the situation by telling the fan, “I don’t want to fight you. I just want to talk.” The fan, however, was not interested in talking and continued to throw punches at Garry.
At this point, security personnel intervened and were able to restrain the fan. The fan was then escorted out of the arena.
Garry later took to social media to address the incident, saying, “I’m not sure what that was all about, but I’m glad security was there to help.”
The incident has sparked a debate on social media, with some people questioning why the fan was allowed backstage in the first place. Others have argued that the fan should have been removed from the arena immediately.
It is unclear what the fan’s motives were for attempting to fight Garry. It is also unclear if the fan will face any legal repercussions for his actions.
Regardless, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of security at events like UFC 285. It is essential that security personnel are present to ensure the safety of all those in attendance.
