'Drunken yobs' incite riot at Lockdown MMA show in Manchester (Video)

LockDown MMA held its first-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) show last Saturday (March 31, 2012) from the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Trafford Park, Manchester, England.

And it was a doozy.

The rookie promotion, founded by Manchester Predators coach Will Burke, erupted into a full-blown riot after a "few drunken yobs" went crazy and started slinging bottles and chairs.

Burke takes to his Facebook account to apologize:

Thanks to everyone who helped build and run the show last night. I can only apologise for the unfortunate early end to the show due to a few drunken yobs who decided to ruin it for everybody. Those involved should be utterly ashamed not just for last night, but for being such inferior and unfortunate human beings. Thankfully nobody was hurt, nevertheless there will be a lot of changes to the next event to ensure that this NEVER happens again.

The good news is that order was quickly restored after police arrived and no one was hurt. But a couple of yobs will have some explaining to do when they eventually sober up.
