UFC fighter Cody Gibson told a man to Google his name before being punched in the face and knocked to the ground at a Las Vegas bar recently.
The brawl was captured on film, which features the 27-year-old, nicknamed “The Renegade," waving his fists in front of the man who had pushed him to the floor. The two attempted to continue the fight but were broken up by security before another hit could occur.
“Google me, b****,” Gibson allegedly said.
Gibson spoke regretfully about the fight the next day on Sherdog Radio.
“When I woke up this morning, I definitely had that pit in the bottom of my stomach like, ‘Holy crap. Could I be that guy?’” Gibson said. “You know, who gets fired over some stupid stuff.”
Gibson claimed that the man enticed him and that he eventually gave in to the fight.
“He was definitely egging on the situation, and then he started to irritate me,” Gibson said.
Police confirmed that there were no arrests made after the incident.
The fight was Gibson’s second of the night. Earlier in the evening, he fought and lost to Manny Gamburyan at UFC 178.
