This is what happens when you rob an MMA fighter

Quote:
Chicago, a town known for its strikingly accurate resemblance of Gotham City. Wait, so you're telling me that Gotham City was just modeled after Chicago and in the films, the production crew actually used Chicago to represent Gotham City? Well there goes my childhood. That undoubtedly means Chicago is infiltrated with criminals who also have an expert taste for designing over-the-top costumes. Chicago also has a tendency to serve criminals up with a brutal beating, as evidenced by this story from FOX Chicago of a robber picking the wrong person to mess with.

Police say 24-year-old Anthony Miranda walked up to a car which was parked near 55th and Kenneth about 11:30 p.m. and asked the driver for a lighter.

When the driver said he didnít have one, Miranda allegedly pulled a handgun, pointed it at the driver and demanded money. And even after getting some money, he ordered the driver out of the car, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

At some point, Mirandaís attention was diverted and the victim was able to grab control of the gun and the two wrestled.

During the fight, Miranda accidentally discharged his gun, shooting himself in the ankle, Mirabelli said.

The victim -- who told police heís a martial arts expert and ultimate fighting champion -- was able to pin Miranda down until police arrived. Police arrived to find Miranda with a face full of lacerations and two black eyes. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital for treatment, police said.

Now who is this mysterious fighter.

A lot of people are throwing Andrei Arlovski's name in the mix since he is a former UFC champion. Granted, most of these mainstream journalists believe that everyone who competes in MMA is a 'UFC champion.' Check out the would-be robber's face after he was on the work-end of an absolute mauling.

Well, it's not Arlovski, he would have knocked himself out trying to get to his wallet to hand the guy the money.

UFC fighter turns tables on robber

Quote:
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 prey was a 33-year-old mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championships. The tables were turned rather quickly, reports the Chicago Tribune.

According to police, the near-victim said Miranda approached his car near Kenneth Ave. and 55th St. and asked for a light. The man, 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.

What happened next is probably what you would expect when someone tries to rob an MMA fighter: a struggle ensued.

Miranda was left with bad bruises all over his face and a bullet in his ankle after the gun discharged during the presumably one-sided fight, according to the report.

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.

The UFC fighter didn't want to be identified, but I secretly think it was JBJ.

On one site they were talking about this and the fighter kept being called Justin. The only Justin I can think of that fought in the UFC was that Eilers guy that was killed.

Any other Justins you guys can think of?
