UFC in Las Vegas: 6IX9INE REACTS TO A DRINK BEING THROWN AT HIM AND RETURNS THE FAVOR
The rapper arrived at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday for UFC 266… and as he made his way through the crowds and passed supporters behind barriers, he got into an altercation with someone who was not a fan.
See for yourself in this footage acquired by TMZ of the incident — in it, you’ll see 69 ignoring the taunts from this guy, who is calling him a bitch and a whole bunch of other derogatory terms. The guy seems to throw something towards Tekashi’s back as he passes, and the object comes into touch with the Japanese martial artist.
In the end, witnesses say it was the man’s drink that Tekashi tossed, and that Tekashi circled around to look at him… and to throw another drink of his own as punishment. Some say it appeared like coffee, and it splattered on those who were in close proximity to it. T69 was escorted away from the scene by security officers who arrived quickly and broke up the chaos.
There is no news on whether 6ix9ine was dealt with as a result of this — but sources on the scene claim the man who started the altercation was definitely taken away in handcuffs after the incident.
