Video: Football game in Brazil descends in to all out brawl

It's safe to say that the referee lost control of this game in Brazil as it ended up in an all out brawl between the two sides.

The game took place between Tupã and MAC in Pompeia in São Paulo, and there had been a few flashpoints of aggression between the sides before this kicked off, including one that took five minutes to sort out, so they could have seen this coming.

As you can see in the video, things escalate pretty quickly, and we suspect a few of these lads might be doing a bit of Brazilian Jiu Jitus on the side, as at least one of them throws in an impressive looking karate kick.

And to think, this was just a training match before the season starts up in earnest. They're certainly fired up anyway.
