A contest between Gilas Pilipinas of the Philippines and Australia turned into an all-out WWE melee.
One misplaced elbow from a Philippines player to Australias Chris Goulding began a series of hard fouls that lead to a fight reminiscent of the Malice at the Palace.

More knuckin’ and buckin ensued, and the crowd got involved too throwing bottles on the floor. Ultimately after it was all said and done, 13 players were ejected, with 9 from the Philippines.
