D.C. Defenders offensive lineman Jean Delance appeared in the team’s first United Football League game against the San Antonio Brahmas, but he didn’t stick around for the end.

As the Defenders attempted to come back against the Brahmas, Delance was ejected in the fourth quarter for spitting at linebacker Delontae Scott. Delance was hit with a “flagrant personal foul” after it appeared the Defenders had scored a touchdown.

The score was negated after officials said Delance jumped early on the play. He was thrown out and cost the team a touchdown to get back in the game. D.C. had to settle for four field goals and dropped the opener 27-12.

On the flagrant play, the UFL broadcast showed Scott warning Defenders quarterback Jordan Ta’amu about Delance spitting.

“Hey, your boy spit on me again, it’s over,” Scott told Ta’amu. “He spit on me again it’s over.”
