UFC fighters beat in street fights

When UFC fighters are reported to get beat in street fights (unprofessional events) does it hurt the legitimacy of the sport?

recently it was reported George was knocked out after punched Ross Pearson's boxing coach Erin Beach (who is a boxer). I am also aware it's a rumored story

Similar stories come to mind:
Don Frye (UFC champion and hall of famer) getting knocked out by a bodyguard (though he was drunk)
Tito Ortiz (former UFC champion) getting knocked out by Lee Murray
Wanderlei was reported to get knocked out by Krazy Horse (a lightweight) when he was pride champion, after being choked out by same sized Cristiano Marcello
I'm sure there's more but that's off the top of my head...

Do these kind of stories hurt the sport (where a pure boxer beats an MMA fighter in a street fight) or do they get written off as in "anything can happen in a fight"?
It definetly hurt my respect for Don, Tito, Wand and George

Don Frye is the only example worth looking at but he was drunk. Your threads are terrible as always.

I highly doubt a trained fighter will lose to some random in a street fight, George was knocked out by Pearson's boxing coach, not exactly some guy at a bar, all the examples you listed except Frye were guys getting beat up by other pro fighters.

Frye was so drunk he fell over, he was never knocked out, just down.
UFC is a company, MMA is a sport . .
None of these stories hurt anything except maybe someones pride..

Bas Rutten's story about beating up bouncers at a club in Holland is better than all of those.

Also the story about Couture and Hendo tossing bouncers around.

I still like the story where Chuck, Tito, and some other guys ended up in a fight in an alley and Chuck was just knocking out people left and right.

Apparently Ross Pearson's boxing coach KO'ed Soti off camera on TUF. Apparently loads of shit went down we didn't get to see.

You forgot the part where he calmly took his watch off then started knocking people out...lolz! I could see it already.

I want to believe the Overeem story real badly where the bouncers attacked his brother and he came back to help em. Two vs five or so. Apparently all bouncers went to the hospital.

The last brawl I remember reading was Junie Browning in Thailand. He looked like he got the bad end of it.

Film on Lee Murray should be damn interesting.
