NASCAR Vs. UFC: Drivers Take Swings At One Another

There are plenty of connections between NASCAR and the UFC.

Kevin Harvick, a top driver in the Sprint Cup circuit, runs a management firm that helps direct the careers of Donald Cerrone and Miesha Tate. Harvick and Cerrone are also close friends.

This past Sunday, the world of MMA was front-and-center after the latest NASCAR event in Texas, as Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski engaged in a fight after the action on the track.

Gordon got out and confronted Keselowski immediately after the race, which was won by Jimmie Johnson. Officials and crew members got involved and Gordon was left with a cut on his lip and Keselowski a bruised face.

“I couldn’t even tell you what happened,” Keselowski said, in an interview with the Associated Press. “Just a melee of people.”

Gordon was upset after Keselowski spun him out on the final restart that Johnson claimed. The series went to a new format to bring more excitement to the conclusion of the season.

“The way he races, I don’t know how he ever won a championship. This is why everyone is fighting with him,” Gordon said. “There wasn’t any conversation. You can’t have a conversation with him. There’s big consequences. To me, it’s just a bunch of crap. The kid is just doing stuff way over his head.”

NASCAR will review the incident and could hand out fines and other punishment to those involved.

UFC Director of Public Relations, Dave Sholler, noticed the “brawl” and got in his thoughts via Twitter:
