Matt Brown reportedly had to deal with punches being thrown at him, even after his UFC 198  bout with Demian Maia concluded on Saturday.

According to reports, Brown was allegedly assaulted by his former jiu-jitsu coach Rodrigo Botti, while in a hotel lobby. UFC commentator Brian Stann reported the incident on Twitter, and then video surfaced of an ensuing fight involving Brown’s associate. According to a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, Botti has pressed charges against Vinicius “Pequeno” Lemos. Brown, however, has reportedly not pressed charges against Botti.

Brown was submitted by Maia with a rear-naked-choke at UFC 198.
