[QUOTE][SIZE="6"]Guy Tries To Rob MMA Fighter[/SIZE]
And in a feel good story for the day, an alleged robber in Chicago picked the wrong man to try to rob.
Anthony Miranda, 24, attempted a robbery and carjacking, but the person he was trying to rob was a 33-year-old mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championships.
According to police said Miranda approached his car on near Kenneth Ave. and 55th St. and asked for a light. The MMA Fighter, who did not want to be identified, said he didn’t have a light when Miranda pulled a gun, demanded valuables and told the driver to get out of the car, police said.
Miranda was left with bruises all over his face and a bullet in his own ankle after the gun discharged during the one-sided fight, according to the report.
The UFC fighter held Miranda on the ground until police arrived.
Miranda got a much needed 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.
If I had gotten the upper hand on this tool, he'd have 'accidently been shot' for sure. I got robbed at x-mas last year while attending my 11yr olds birthday party. My nieces boyfriend stole christmas and the police can't prove it. They know he did it and know I know so if he comes up beaten, i'm suspect 1. I hate thieves.
