Viral: Politicians in Brazil step into the MMA ring to fix their differences


A curious fight went on social media being carried out by two politicians in . The event was held in a school gymnasium, there were sports fans present, and it was broadcast for free on social media.

Simão Peixoto, mayor of Borba, invited the former councilor Erineu da Silva into a fight after he strongly criticized it last September for the lack of conservation for a water park. Da Silva called him a “scoundrel” and a “scoundrel”, so he started a battle of sayings between the two, until at the end Peixoto invited him to settle their differences with blows.

As expected, the event to which he invited his rival through a video on the Internet was highly criticized, however, Peixoto stressed that “If (da Silva) really wants to fight … we are ready to fight … I have always been a winner.”

On the day of the match, the gym where the ring is located looked full, and it finally took place in three rounds. After a series of kicks, punches and elbows, Peixoto was announced as the winner, although many considered that it must have been da Silva for having connected better blows.

The video of the fight circulates on and has been shared thousands of times.
