One of the UFC’s most colorful and eccentric characters, Perry is an enigma. He deteriorated throughout 2020 and it culminated with a disgraceful fight in a Texas restaurant. The Florida native had a verbal dispute with an older man in the diner. However, it culminated in Perry shamefully knocking the man out cold. Instantly, fans condemned him for the shocking assault.
Bizarrely, Perry escaped without a criminal conviction but the UFC issued a public reprimand. Meanwhile, ‘Platinum’ wrote his own apology. He apologized to his pregnant girlfriend, Latory Gonzalez and to the UFC. It also created a discussion about the potential effects of head trauma because of his erratic behavior. Fortunately, he became more stable since fatherhood (via Sportbible).
The Boston Bruins traveled up to Vancouver for a clash with the Canucks. It was a homecoming for Lucic because he hailed from the city. After the game, Lucic went out to a bar when he had a run-in with another drinker. Needless to say, they didn’t become best friends because a fight started. Lucic took two punches but threw some back in a messy brawl. It was an unfortunate and unflattering encounter.
After his eventful night, Lucic claimed that he would never speak positively about his city again. “I have no reason left to try and defend my city, and the people of my city,” Lucic told the media (via Sportsnet). “Other than being at Rogers Arena, no one will ever see me in downtown Vancouver ever again.” Shamefully, locals also harassed Lucic’s grandparents at Rogers Arena.
Former Cowboys defensive linesman Crawford had a well-publicized bar fight in Florida. The NFL star went to the Coyote Ugly Saloon on Panama City Beach when the conflict broke out. He helped put a beating on some of his fellow patrons after they shamefully provoked his brother. Then, the police came to the scene and video footage showed him shoving some of the officers away.
They charged him with misdemeanor unlawful assembly but never formally arrested him. The Cowboys weren’t impressed because he was one of their steadiest performers throughout the season. Also, Crawford was lucky because he didn’t receive a potential 60-day jail sentence. But he did get community service and instructions to complete an anger management course (via Bleacher Report).
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport is the busiest on the planet. However, ”Pacman’ Jones found a unique way to entertain himself. Somehow, the volatile NFL star became embroiled in an argument with an airport employee. However, this escalated to the next level and things became physical. Then, Frank Ragin, an airport worker, shoved Jones and swung a punch.
This was a terrible move because Jones is a lunatic. He’s the type of personality who would throw down in a convent. The former Bengals star dropped his attacker before his entourage led him away. Usually, Jones is the one who faces charges but this time Ragin took the hit (via SBNation). ‘Pacman’ has spent so much time behind bars that it’s a wonder he doesn’t have his own cell at this point.
Sprewell was one of the NBA’s most colorful characters because he was no stranger to controversy. His most infamous moment was when he tried to choke out coach P.J. Carlesimo in a practice. But that’s not why he’s on this list. No, we’re interested in the time he broke his hand. Allegedly, he hosted a party on his yacht but became enraged when a woman vomited on the deck (via CBC Sports).
His instant reaction was to punch her boyfriend but this didn’t end well. After he shamefully tried to assault the man, he missed and hit the wall instead. Then, the Knicks star fractured his pinkie which wasn’t helpful for an NBA player. He wore a cast for a month on doctor’s orders. Furthermore, he went to Milwaukee for the party against the orders of the Knicks’ organization.
McGregor has been embroiled in numerous unsavory incidents but this was the only one to result in a public apology. He was drinking in a local bar when he decided to buy a round of his own whiskey for the bar. However, one older man rejected his offer and told McGregor he didn’t want his whiskey. McGregor clearly didn’t appreciate this because he shamefully punched the man in the face.
Footage of the incident went viral and McGregor faced global condemnation for his action. It was disgraceful because he is a professional fighter and threw hands at an older man in his fifties. Later, McGregor apologized on ESPN and made it clear that it was a terrible mistake. But then he bought the bar and banned the man from stepping onto the premises, so he wasn’t that sorry.
