Former TUF contestant and UFC fighter, James McSweeney, spoiled the plans for a couple of thieves in Las Vegas days ago.
The report is spreading through the MMA media like wildfire. Coming only months after the UFC's Nick Ring busted up a mugging. Once again an MMA fighter steps in to defend the innocent as McSeeney takes down a knife wielding bad guy who threatened a store clerk.
The following is the description of Wednesday night's incident:
Here's a description of the incident, courtesy of the Web site:"Two men were arguing loudly inside the store near the door. When the female clerk went over to ask them to take it outside, one pulled a knife and directed her back to the register. The second man took position near the door. The man with the knife started grabbing cash out of the register.
James grabbed the knife wielder's wrist, put his hand on his shoulder and swept him face first to the floor, stunning him. James knelt put one knee in the middle of the man's back and immobilized the knife hand by trapping it in the crook of his other other knee. The second thief seeing his partner down and trapped, bolted for the door. No one was injured, other than some minor scrapes on the face of the would be thief."
No one was injured during the failed attack.
