Brett Okamoto reported that the armed robbery took place on a beach near the Hotel.

Last month in Brooklyn, Conor McGregor attacked a bus filled with UFC fighters, managers, Media member and employees which resulted in two athletes sustaining injuries and had to be pulled out of the UFC 223 fight card.

Luckily no fighter was injured in this robbery incident in Brazil.

However, UFC Welterweight contender, Colby Covington was quick to make another tweet regarding the Brazilian robbery incident to attract attention.

We will have to wait and see if Rafael Dos Anjos responds to this Tweet.
