A recent football match between Manchester United and Crystal Palace descended into chaos after a scuffle broke out between the two sides.
70 minutes into the match at Old Trafford, a brawl broke out involving 20 players and Casemiro was given a red card for putting his hands around the throat of Will Hughes.
Two yellow cards were also handed out to Palace’s Jeffrey Schlupp – who appeared to instigate the fight – and Manchester United’s Antony.
Despite losing one of their star players, United still pulled off a 2-1 victory to move past Newcastle United and claim the number three spot on the Premier League table.
Casemiro compared to Brock Lesnar
The incident has caused a lot of controversy in the football world, with former Aston Villa Forward Gabby Agbonlahor claiming the Man United Midfielder should be arrested.
Speaking to TalkSport, Agbonlohor compared the star’s actions to Lesnar in UFC.
“Casemiro thought he was Brock Lesnar in UFC. The way he was strangling Will Hughes, he should be arrested for that. You know there’s kids watching that game later on on Match of the Day or watching it somewhere and seeing Casemiro strangling an opponent.
“This isn’t ice hockey in America where they have a scrap during the game. This is football, we don’t want to see that. So, Casemiro needs to be disciplined by Manchester United.”

Lesnar himself has recently been in trouble of his own, with reports claiming he has heat for his “freak out” at the Royal Rumble after he was eliminated in under three minutes by Bobby Lashley.
However, Booker T has hit out at these claims, saying he believes The Beast Incarnate simply “did his job”.
