If somebody reaches into your pocket without your consent I believe that can be deemed as assault? Renzo even said he doesn't smoke and they have the nerve to put their hands on him and in his pockets?

No honest person acts like that. Renzo is street smart, I like it. I probably wouldn't have gone back looking for the other guy, I would always mug a mugger after detaining them though, just for a taste of their own medicine
Yeah, now that I have a chance to listen to the interview, what he describes is definitely a mugging. Probably not career criminals, just a couple of guys who thought they found an easy target. Renzo may have done them a great service.

In teaching them that looks can be very desceptive especially if you don't watch MMA?

I think he meant it would teach them a lesson in what is right and what is wrong. They might have chosen a helpless drunk to pick on and mug, but this time they chose a BJJ god, and they got what was coming to them. The lesson they learned is probably just to be more careful who you mug, to be honest. But they deserved it either way (if this is true).

That if you're going to be muggers, you may as well go whole hog and carry a weapon.

Seriously though, the fact that they didn't even have a knife between them and took a while to decide to mug him tells me they don't do this often and may decide it just isn't worth the risk after taking this beating.

I don't know about the law of USA, but can't he get a jailtime for this? He himself admitted on assaulting 2 guys, and it can't be considered selfdefence, when you chase a guy down, and then choke him out 3 consecutive times..

Renzo would have been charged with assault of police were involved but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen. It's like robbing a drug dealer, the dealer can't exactly go to the cops and tell them someone stole his stash.

Well there is a such thing as excessive force. I'm not sure if that's what Renzo did. From the way the story's spun I would say it isn't.
