At Friday’s Karate Kombat 47, the promotion’s president Asim Zaidi choked out Will Esparza’s corner man, who was involved in a brawl during the event.

The president went behind the corner man, put him in a rear-naked choke, and then left him unconscious on the ground.

The brawl happened just after the decision reading in the fight between Will Esparza and Luis Melendez. Melendez won the bout by unanimous decision, which Esparza’s corner did not like.
