    A brawl broke out at an MMA and kickboxing event in Liverpool in March 2017 and those involved have just been sentenced:

    Chaos erupted at an MMA event in Liverpool, England last March after corner-men and spectators stormed the ring to fight with one of the competitors. The event took place at the Great Georges Cultural Community Project, aka The Black-E.

    The brawl began during a kickboxing match between Adam Lea and Darren Lawler after Lea elbowed Lawler in the face. Lawler’s corner were incensed at the strike and one of them tried to attack Lea with a stool.

    Video acquired by The Liverpool ECHO captured the moments after the brawl kicked off, showing dozens of people fighting across the venue. Video footage reveals individuals fighting with chairs, stools, and metal posts as well as throwing bottles at each other.

    The most disturbing part of the video shows Anthony Addison, 29, beaten by multiple assailants until he loses consciousness. Addison is then mercilessly attacked while defenseless on the ground.

    Addison was one of those jailed. He received a seven-and-a-half month sentence for his actions preceding the moment he was knocked unconscious.

    Ian Joseph Lea Jr., 28, who threw a bottle and elbowed Addison in the head while he was unconscious, was given a 10 month sentence. Lea Jr. is Adam Lea’s brother.

    Ian Lea Sr., 53, father to both Adam Lea and Ian Lea Jr., was also jailed. He received 20 months in jail, for kicking an unconscious Addison twice in the head.

    Ryan Gildea, 35, was given a 15 month sentence in absence (he failed to attend court). At the Black-E he threw bottles and tried to hit an unconscious Addison with a metal post.

    According to the ECHO , Gildea is a convicted killer who held a man while his accomplice stabbed him to death in 2002. For this Gildea was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to five years in prison. Gildea was also jailed in 2011 (for robbery) and 2015 (burglary and theft).

    Travis Muat, 28, received a 12 1⁄2 month sentence for his actions at the Black-E. The ECHO claimed that Muat has been a drug dealer since the age of 16 and that he once served a seven year sentence after being arrested in possession of a handgun while dealing Class A drugs. Muat was also jailed in 2015 for battery and harassment.

    Gerard Gilboy, 30, was also sentenced to 12 1⁄2 months. He struck Addison with a chair during the brawl. Gilboy’s first interactions with the police occurred when he was 14. The ECHO states that he was later jailed for dealing heroin. Gilboy was also jailed for harassment in 2007; which involved Gilboy vandalizing a woman’s home and threatening to cut the head off of her baby.

    In April 2017 there was a stabbing outside of the Echo Arena after a Cage Warriors event.

    Liverpool, which was named European Capital of Culture in 2008, will host the UFC for the very first time on May 27th, 2018. UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs. Till is currently scheduled to feature Darren Till, who is from Liverpool, in the main event.

    Hooligan life in Cesspool. Saturday Night’s alright for fighting. Big fucking deal.

    Edit.

    Check out the dude from the Convict McGregor school of hooliganism. The guy on the left with the fire extinguisher in his hand. He’s totally going for the window. There’s literally nobody between him and the train window. Everybody else is brawling. He sprays the fire extinguisher, then uses it on the window.
