Ugly scenes at Liverpool MMA & Boxing event

Shocking footage emerges of crowd violence at UK MMA Event.

Crowd violence erupted at last Saturday's MMA & Boxing event at The Great Georges Cultural Community Project, otherwise known as The Black E in Liverpool on March 4th 2017.

After an apparent dispute over the use of elbows during the preceding fight, footage shows the two fighters in the ring before other individuals entered the ring through the ropes and appeared to have struck one of the fighters. Missiles were then thrown in the ring towards the growing brawl that spilled outside and the scenes grew even more ugly as spectators clashed outside with kicks and punches thrown. One male appeared to be knocked out cold on the floor whilst another then decides to hurl a chair at him taking full advantage of the motionless man..

Two people were taken to hospital but were not seriously injured reported The Liverpool Echo. Merseyside Police said that more than 20 people were involved in the violence that took place outside.

In the statement released on behalf of the venue it was said "The Mangement of The Black - E (Great Georges Cultural Community Project) deeply regrets the brawl that took place on Saturday evening towards the end of the event"

Police have now urged the local council officials to urgently review the venues licence after raising concerns that the China Town premises 'are associated with serious crime and disorder.'
