Tribute to Queen Elizabeth was taken down after UFC fans give loud boos (video)


A big-screen tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II in Las Vegas was met by a loud chorus of boos from fans in attendance at UFC 279 on Sunday morning, September 11

The United Kingdom, and much of the world, has been in mourning following the death of the monarch on Thursday September 9, but there was little love shown to her in Vegas where the sight of her face immediately sparked angry boos and laughter from people listening to the jeers.

Ahead of the main card of UFC 279, a picture of the Queen was put up on the main screen inside the arena, with her date of birth and death below, while an announcer read her name out to the crowd in attendance.

It was met by loud boos, though, before being quickly taken down

Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 96 on Thursday, and has now been succeeded by her son, King Charles III.
