Former NFL MVP Cam Newton Seen in Shocking Viral Video During Brawl at Youth Event

Cam Newton was seen on video in a heated moment in Atlanta on Sunday. Video clips show a physical confrontation involving the former NFL MVP.

Sunday was supposed to be a day of gridiron competition with Cam Newton at the forefront, as the former NFL quarterback was involved in a 7-on-7 competition in Atlanta.

But video footage of a physical confrontation on Sunday has Newton’s name linked to the altercation.

Cam Newton Seen in Confrontation With Several People

The 2015 MVP is seen taking on as many as three people during this chaotic 22-second clip.

But another angle shows that Newton was hit from behind while appearing to break up a confrontation.

Police were later seen attempting to break up the heated moment with Newton at the center.

It’s not currently known what stirred the physical moment between Newton and the others. The names of the others involved were not identified. Yet, it is believed, per the video clips, that they belong to the organization “Top Shelf Performance,” which is based in Atlanta.

Turns out, Top Shelf and Newton’s team, C1N, were scheduled to compete in the same tournament.

What Was the Name of the Event Where the Fight Took Place?

The viral scuffle took place at the “We Ball Sports” event.

This tournament offered a $5,000 cash prize to the winning team of the tournament. It was also considered an “invite only” showcase where various club organizations would compete.

Newton, even during his NFL playing days, has been heavily involved with the 7-on-7 scene through his team C1N. His venture serves kids between the ages of 12 and 18.

“C1N was founded by Cam Newton in 2011. As an accomplished professional football player and former Heisman Trophy winner, Cam recognized the importance of providing opportunities and guidance to young athletes. He wanted to create a program that focused on improving football skills and emphasized character development and personal growth.

“C1N holds a special place in Cam’s heart, as it represents his commitment to giving back and shaping the next generation of athletes,” the organization’s mission statement reads on its website.
