Original article:

Two men were caught on video throwing punches and shouting at each other at an MRT Station.

Stompers Helmi, David and Karthik alerted Stomp to the video that has been circulating on WhatsApp.

It is unclear when this incident happened but from the video, it took place at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station on the North East Line (NEL).

In the video, the two men are seen facing each other with their hands up in a fighting stance, just like mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters, as onlookers keep their distance.

One of the men wearing a black T-shirt has blood smeared on the right side of his face.

A woman and a couple of SBS Transit staff are seen trying to break up the fight.

The woman points at the man in black and says, "He's wrong! He's wrong!"

The man in the black T-shirt then calls the man in the blue T-shirt a "c***i dog".

When a passer-by tries to calm him down he says, "Look at what he did to my face" before throwing another punch at the man in blue.

He then tells the station's staff to call the police. A staff member replies that he has already done so and tells him, "Don't worry, they will take action".

Just when it looks like the fight is over, the man in black runs towards the man in blue who promptly pins him to the ground.

He shouts at the others, "Hold him down or I will take him out".

As an onlooker helps the man in black up, he hurls vulgarities at the man in blue walking away from him.

He then walks away in the opposite direction before the video ends.

Stomp has contacted the authorities for more information.
