Jake Paul may have taken the win against Tyron Woodley in the ring, but not all the fighting action at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse took place inside the ropes.
It was someone in the crowd who took one of the biggest punches of the night, sparking a scrap among half-a-dozen people in the stands.
Footage shows four people squaring up to each other and exchanging words, which got more heated when one of the men pushed another away.
The person who had been pushed came back to yell loudly, before the man struck him again – but this time it was a sweet connection with a right-hander which sent the other man flying.
The punch sparked gasps from those around them in the crowd, and a brawl ensued as several punches were thrown and one of those involved lost his shirt before security intervened.
The footage was posted on social media, where several commenters made the same claim that the brawl in the crowd was more entertaining than the fight between Paul and Woodley.
"More action in the crows than the ring… embarrassing," one said.

The main event itself has been criticised for being an underwhelming affair, with several pro fighters trashing YouTuber Paul despite his victory.
UFC star Kamaru Usman Tweeted a facepalm emoji after the bout was over, while Julian 'J-Rock' Williams said: "I just wasted 30 precious minutes of my life that I'll never get back, I'm upset at myself."
Retired boxer Ishe Smith said: "Man this dude need to keep boxers names out his mouth.
"Tank, Nelo, and a hand full of others would of annihilated him tonight.
"When you talk that talk like you a Don of the sport you need to walk that walk.
"No pass from me, Jake Paul f****** stinks. There I said it stop sugar coating that bull****."
And conspiracy theorists online have spoken of how they think the fight was "rigged", with UFC fighter Woodley appearing not to go all in on his opponent.
