In this wild video, UFC fighter Jordan Williams apprehends a carjacker.
At times, UFC fighters must demonstrate their abilities outside of the octagon.
Jordan Williams left his car running in the parking lot of a Denver gas station while he went inside to get a drink and some snacks. When he returned to his car, he noticed a carjacker climbing into the driver's side and attempting to reverse it. That is when his combative instincts took over.
Williams told ESPN, "At first, I couldn't believe it." “And then I realized, 'Holy s–t, there is actually someone in my car.'
The 30-year-old pursued the vehicle, opened the driver's side door, and threw the offender out. Williams then punched the driver in the face and managed to get a couple of knees in before he fled. The carjacker was visibly in pain as he fled, his head held high.
“I opened the door and, strangely enough, the first thing I did was toss the merchandise I purchased onto the passenger seat,” Williams explained. “And then I punched the guy. Following the initial punch, he stated, 'OK, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.' As he exited, I was able to get some knees on him.”
Williams frequents the gas station because it is located between his house and gym. He obtained the surveillance footage and shared it on his Instagram page, claiming his only regret was not getting more training.
“Wish I would have hit him with the trip following the clinch work and finished with some ground and pound,” Williams wrote on Instagram. “However, I'll settle for reclaiming my car.”
Williams is currently training at Denver's Factory X MMA. He was promoted to the major leagues following a stint on Dana White's Contender Series. Williams is 0-2 in the UFC, having been defeated by Nassourdine Imavov and Mickey Gall, respectively. Williams has a career record of 9-5 in mixed martial arts.
