The September 22 basketball game between the EAC Generals and Mapua Cardinals at The Arena in San Juan turned into a very ugly fight following a hard bump by EAC guard John Tayongtong on Mapua guard CJ Isit while the latter was dribbling at halfcourt.

The incident took place just 28.5 seconds left in the final quarter, with the Generals leading by 9 points, 86-77.

Based on the video, Tayongtong punched Isit twice with one blow landing on the jaw of the Mapua guard, nearly knocking him out.

A free-for-all fist fight happened after other players of both teams joined the royal rumble and hurt one another on the court.

Basketball officials declared EAC as the winner, but almost all players were slapped with sanctions.

Whose fault was it? Do you see the brawl as a bad example for young enthusiasts of this sport?
