Robber gets a dose of his own medicine with UFC fighter, loses
UFC mixed martial artist turns tables on robber who gets beat up, shot in leg with own gun. An alleged robber in Chicago picked the wrong man to mess with.
Anthony Miranda, 24, attempted a robbery and carjacking, police said, but his would-be patsy was a 33-year-old mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championships. The tables were turned rather quickly, according to the Chicago Tribune.
According to police, the “victim” said Miranda approached his car near Kenneth Ave. and 55th St. and asked for a light for a cigarette. When the man, who did not want to be identified, said he didn’t have a light Miranda pulled a gun, demanded valuables and told the driver to get out of the car, police told the Tribune.
What happened next is probably what you would expect when someone tries to rob an MMA fighter: a one-sided struggle.
Instead of cash and valuables, Miranda came away with bruises all over his face, a bullet in his ankle after his gun discharged during the fight and a mugshot for the ages.
The UFC fighter was able to hold Miranda on the ground until police arrived.
Miranda got a trip to the hospital and is being held on $350,000 bail.
According to the Tribune, Miranda is on parole and has served time for multiple burglaries. He was released from prison in March 2010.
