UFC 279: Press conference canceled due to a general brawl
Dana White had to cancel the UFC 279 press conference in the middle of it due to a general brawl that broke out backstage!

The crowd sent up a ton of boos because of the sudden cut, but White couldn’t afford for it to get out of hand in order to keep everyone safe.

In the aftermath of the event, White clarified, without explaining in detail all the brouhaha, but by his account, it was VERY violent.

White said four fighters were involved, including Kevin Holland and Khamzat Chimaev, who were the first to open that rumble with two other fighters.

The Diaz clan was also involved, as they showed up with 57 people…

This September 10 card is not in jeopardy at the moment, but that could quickly change if the guns aren’t put away.
