Brazilian Crowd Almost Riots After American Wins At UFC 212

UFC featherweight Brian “Boom” Kelleher earned an impressive submission victory over Iuri Alcantara at last night’s UFC 212 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. However, the Brazilian crowd was not pleased with the result.

In the fighter’s post-fight interview, Kelleher reflected the crowd’s infamous “you’re gonna die” chant, punctuating it with a lengthy “shhhhh.”

In a media scrum after the bout, as transcribed by MMA Junkie, Kelleher explained that fans were pretty engaged at that point.

“It was intense. I kind of got carried away in the post-fight interview because they were yelling at me. I had my adrenaline up, so I fired back. It was just all fun, but I guess they took it serious. They were throwing beer cans at me on the way out, so they had to rush me out. But I’m good. Everything is fine.” He said.
