The Brisbane Lions are reportedly investigating an incident involving star midfielder Pearce Hanley at a pub while watching UFC 200 on Sunday afternoon, according to The Age.

The Age reports that Hanley and a friend started "play fighting" after the UFC event, before things started to escalate rather quickly abd became a "little too willing". 

It is unclear whether Hanley was under the influence of alcohol.

The club is currently reviewing CCTV footage of the incident to confirm the version of events and whether they will take any further action.
