Water polo coach 'Khabib-jumps' on a rival player, instigates mass brawl (VIDEO)

Water polo coach 'Khabib-jumps' on a rival player, instigates mass brawl (VIDEO)
An amateur water polo game in Moscow was halted after a coach jumped into the swimming pool to fight with a player who intentionally hurled a ball at his face, mimicking Khabib's notorious UFC 229 'Eagle jump.'

Tempers frayed in the match between Moskvich and Kazan when a player got involved in a verbal altercation with the coach who allegedly directed profanities at him.

The infuriated swimmer flung the ball at him ignoring a female official who tried to prevent a potential brawl.

The coach who was visibly enraged by the impudent attack quickly jumped into the swimming pool kicking the player’s head.

The uncontrollable water duel escalated into a mass brawl engaging players of both squads who came to rescue their teammates.

After several seconds of intense ‘punch-talk’ the troublemakers calmed down, including the coach who initiated the brawl.

All of it looks somehow familiar. Doesn't it?
