UFC 162 video: Security removes 'sneaky' Brazilian fan who 'could have possibly stabbed Chris Weidman'

I know some readers will get a chuckle from this story, but don't forget what happened to Monica Seles. Sports fans can get a little nutty sometimes. Watch your back!

"Some Brazilian guy, and I guess he was a problem for Chael too, he's really a media guy, but I guess he's sneaky. He went to where the fans were, he didn't have a camera or anything like that. I just signed something for him ... then all of the sudden he's like, 'Do me a favor and lose in the first round.' Then I find out this guy is a problem. He was waiting out front. I guess he tried to like stab the jeans of Chael Sonnen. He didn't try to stab me, but he was guilty of being a guy who could have possibly stabbed me. Security took care of him. They got rid of him."

Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Chael Sonnen was attacked by a crazed Anderson Silva fan? It actually happened just a few months back in "Sin City" (read about it here). Well, apparently Mr. Psycho was back in action on Wednesday (July 6, 2013) for the UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" media event, and he had a few choice words for "The Spider's" next opponent, Chris Weidman. In fact, the "All American" was "flustered" by the "weird" encounter, but was able to escape unscathed, thanks to some quick work by event security. The New York native will try to capture the 185-pound crown this Saturday night (July 6) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will undoubtedly be watching his back if he pulls off the upset.
