“UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields” took place Saturday night in front of 55,724 crazed Canadians. While most fans that packed the Rogers Centre in Toronto were satisfied with the action that took place inside of the Octagon, several drunken buffoons tried to steal the spotlight from the professionals by brawling in the stands.
Former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar may have come under heavy fire when he criticized Canada’s health care system in late 2009, but it appears the security team hired to cover this weekend’s record-breaking show will now be on the hot seat.
I’m not quite sure what’s more disturbing, the fact that an extended two-round scrum broke out in the stands at an event of this magnitude, or the hoards of fans that stood idly by watching a couple of men get jumped. I guess the next best thing is to capture the mauling on your camera phone…

Thanks for the heads up, Kevin Iole.
