In the middle of the 3rd quarter of the Wednesday’s San Mig Coffee vs. Global Port game, a skirmish erupted when Kelly Nabong and Marc Pingris came to blows.

If you were scoring at home, Marc got the first punch in (grazed Nabong’s head). Kelly responded with a right haymaker which went wide as Pingris ducked and threw a blind overhead right himself (connected). Kelly took advantage from this position however, and unleashed a knee to Pingris’ head (it missed and settled for Pingris’ ribs.)
Pingris 10, Nabong 9 (if you’re a fan of boxing) Nabong 10, Pingris 9 (if you’re a fan of MMA) Tim Cone 3 (Would have been 0 if he was dragged a la Jeff Van Gundy)
As expected, the twitter world exploded as well just seconds/minutes after the fight:
Marc Pingris vs Floyd Mayweather na lang kaya?
