Andreas Spang penalized for his post-fight actions this past weekend

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.

    I seen it but they both should be punished. This is a pro compitition not a school yard fight nobody should be pushed in the first place. U push a trained fighter your gonna get hit. Self defense is the root of mma.

    Spang needs to chill and learn how to handle himself in a promotional staredown in a controlled environment. With this latest dust-up, it cost him several thousand dollars plus he took what appeared to be a pretty hard knee from Falcao. Silly move. And Falcao aint a dude you want to go out of your way to mess with.

    Ah well, should be a good scrap when they eventually meet.

    Considering some of Falcao’s prior issues, Spang is definitely playing with fire.
