On the floor it was a battle between Foshan and Beijing. In the stands, it was a battle between two random fans.
According to Hupu.com, the fight was started due to a misunderstanding between two female fans. As the argument escalated, the men took over and that’s when security had to step in and break it up.
The fan in the grey hoodie seems to have had some NFL training as he delivers a stiff arm that would make the Heisman trophy statue blush. Not a lot is done from the other fans to break it up. In fact, they look more entertained from the fight than the product on the floor.
I witnessed an altercation such as this one in Beijing last season and was stunned when security didn’t kick the fans out of the stadium. Both fans returned to their seats and watched the game. But as the old saying goes, the show must go on. And it did.
Beijing would end up winning by a final score of 109-94.
