WEC and now UFC lightweight fighter, Donald Cerrone was involved in a backstage brawl at the Evolution Combat Sports event in Clovis, New Mexico, on Sunday night cutting fellow fighter, Marcus Sursa in the process and forcing him out of the main event as a result.

This from the Na Koa MMA Podcast:

The brawl was apparently about a young lady now dating the UFC 155 lb fighter Donald Cerrone who used to date main event fighter of the evening Marcus Sursa. Comments were exchanged after Sursa returned from a trip to the rest room and Cerrone was overseeing the warm-ups of several Jackson MMA fighters on the card this night, some words were exchanged by the two and then a shove followed by Cerrone throwing a punch causing a laceration on the eye of Sursa, he responded with a punch cutting the lip of Cerrone. All told, Sursa was now out of the main event tonight against Buddy Roberts of Reno, NV due to the cut he suffered.
