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.
