TRASH talk aggressor finds tables turned as UFC veteran turned wrestling star gives him something to really talk about
STEPHAN BONNAR head kicked and mauled a wrestling ‘fan’ who stepped over the line in the ring.
A video clip captured by another former UFC veteran Phil Baroni shows Bonnar gets into it with a “fan” who was allowed in the ring and given a mic to talk some smack.
‘The American Psycho’ did not take too kindly to the insults being thrown at him in Sam’s Town Hotel in Las Vegas and unleashed his fury on the trash talker.
Eventually cornermen intervened and restored calm.
But it’s some scuffle.
The fact is UFC veteran Bonnar is far from living the retired life.
Paired with Forrest Griffin, he helped turn the UFC around to being a highly profitable business and is now a big wrestling shot.
Bonnar is the 10th member of the UFC Hall of Fame to go into pro wrestling.

The 40-year-old was a member of the cast of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, which put UFC on the sports map.
He is best known for his 2005 fight with Griffin in the light-heavyweight finals.
