UP Maroons and Muntinlupa Cager engage in a brawl during tune-up game


A tune-up game between UAAP’s UP Fighting Maroon and MPLB’s Muntinlupa Cagers ended in a bench-clearing brawl on Saturday.

A 13-second clip showed UP’s Bright Akhuetie connecting a few jabs against Muntinlupa’s Dhon Reverente after the latter threw a cheap shot at the Cameroonian big man during the second period. Reverente’s squad would retaliate against Akhuetie which resulted in an all-out altercation.

The officials decided not to continue the tune-up game right after the scuffle.
