TMZ Sports has once again come through with previously-unseen footage of a scuffle between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight title contender, Brian Ortega, and Korean rapper, Jay Park.
While the video evidence doesn’t show the alleged slap “T-City” delivered on Park, it does show the moments immediately after. And unfortunately for Ortega — who has been quiet since the incident occurred on Sat. (March 7) at UFC 248 — he can no longer claim innocence since the audio catches him mocking Park, whom he warned months prior of a looming smack.
“I told you I’d slap you like a bitch,” says Ortega as he is being held back by security, who eventually escorted him out of T-Mobile Arena.
Park drew the ire of Ortega a few months back while serving as a translator for his good friend, Chan Sung Jung. Ortega didn’t take too kindly to Park saying he was ducking a fight against Jung while “T-City” was actually recovering from an ACL injury, which derailed their scheduled match up last December.
While a police report has been filed, charges have not yet formerly been pressed by Park. And by the sound of it, he isn’t too high on doing so.
Meanwhile, “Korean Zombie” was livid upon hearing about the incident, which allegedly occurred moments after he left Park’s side to go to the bathroom. In response, Jung issued a scathing verbal attack on Ortega.
“You are such a coward for slapping a musician not a fighter,” Jung wrote on Instagram. “If you fucking planned this to fight me and to use my name because people don’t remember your name anymore, then I congratulate you, it worked.”
Something tells me UFC fight contracts will once again be issued out to both men very soon.
