A day ahead of their Taura MMA 10 co-headliner, Ary Farias and Johnny Campbell got heated at weigh-ins. After a week of trash-talking, they got face to face, which inevitably led to the two fighters having to be separated.
Sooner this week, ‘Cupcakes’ interrupted an interview from Ary, yelling that he would knock the Brazilian out. Finally, at weigh-ins, Farias shoved him, starting a melee. The two men needed to be separated by Taura ambassador Pregador Luo.
The highly anticipated flyweight title bout between Felipe Gheno, the champ, and Bruno ‘Korea’ Mesquita, the challenger, had a friendly encounter. Although Felipe raised his fist in his direction, Bruno did not lose his cool. That was also the mood of the face-off between Sergio Moraes and Jared Revel.
