It’s not unheard of for teammates to get into a fight. Pro sports is a competitive business, and from time to time frustrations boil over.
On Saturday night, during a low-level game between Rio Branco FC and Placido de Castro FC in the Brazilian state of Acre, two members of Placido got into a physical altercation. In the 72nd minute, right after Rio Branco scored a goal to make it 5-2, midfielder Uilian got into a heated discussion with defender Fabio Junior, who isn’t cool enough to have one of those Brazilian mononyms. Then that discussion turned into a full-fledged fist-fight…or I guess I should say a kicking, slapping, and grabbing fight. (It was, after all, a Brazilian soccer fight.)
Take a look:
Come on, guys. If you’re going to get into a fight with a teammate in the middle of a game, make it count. Kick the dude in the nuts. Knock out a couple of teeth. Something.
