Fight Night at Aria – Round Two

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

brunson-sheikhan-fightWe’re still waiting on confirmation that this wasn’t just a lame April Fool’s Day joke. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know as soon as we know for sure. Until then, we’ll report this as if it’s real. If it’s not, well then the joke’s on us.

Early Friday morning Todd Brunson posted a series of tweets that alluded to an altercation between himself and Shawn ‘Sheiky’ Sheikhan at the Aria poker room. If true this wouldn’t be the first time Sheiky was involved in an altercation at Aria.

Apparently sometime after midnight, Sheikhan showed up at the Aria poker room after being thrown out earlier in the day, and claimed since it was after midnight, he should be allowed back in.

Somehow Brunson and Sheikhan got into it with each other, and according to Brunson’s Twitter feed, “He slapped my shoulder and I stood up and punched him right in his little bitch face!!!”

In the end, it was Sheikhan who was hauled off by the police, despite Brunson claiming to not press charges. Apparently Aria pressed the charges themselves.

That’s the nutshell version of Brunson’s account of the event. Like we said, we’ll take it with a grain of salt until it’s confirmed, and proven not to be an April Fool’s Day joke.

You can check out Todd Brunson’s Twitter feed for yourself and read all about it.
