Andreas Spang went home last weekend with lighter pockets than expected and will have to try to make up for lost wages when he competes for the Bellator Seaseon 6 Middleweight Tournament title next month. Spang, who defeated Brian Rogers this past Friday night at Bellator 66, was docked a percentage of his purse for a post-fight scuffle he started with fellow finalist Maiquel Falcao.
When the 185ers did the customary square-off after claiming victories at the event the “Sweet Swede” decided to shove Falcao, sparking a bit of a dust-up including Falcao throwing a knee to Spang’s midsection. Spang also pushed Rogers at the Bellator 66 weigh-ins, a factor possibly coming into play in terms of his punishment.
For his actions, Spang was fined 20% of the $30,000 purse (i.e. $6,000) his received for defeating Rogers.
MMAJunkie first reported the Ohio Athletic Commission’s decision to dock Spang’s takehome.
