UFC fighter Jordan Williams recently found himself having to use his MMA skills outside of the Octagon when he almost became the victim of a car thief.
The 30-year-old Williams had left his car while he was in the store at a gas station, and CCTV footage showed a man was then able to open his unlocked door and get into the vehicle.
However, the thief was unable to drive off before Williams rushed out of the shop, wrenched open the car door and dragged the crook out.
Wisely the thief quickly vacated the scene before Williams had a chance to really let him know how badly he’d messed up by trying to steal a car from a professional MMA fighter.
Later, Williams was able to share the footage on his Instagram page and explained what had happened from his perspective.
“So someone tried to steal my car today #thatfannypacktho,” Williams wrote.
“If you are wondering why my car was still on its the same reason why he couldn’t drive away, I have a push to start and my car won’t go unless the keys are within 5 ft of it and I have them on me always. Needless to say my lesson was learned and I hope so was his.
“Wish I would of hit him with the trip after the clinch work when I tossed him out of the whip, and finish off with some ground and pound but I’ll settle with getting my car back
“Also I know you see the stillness of that fannypack, fannyback game was on point this could be a commercial for them.”
A veteran of the sport who has also competed for Bellator, Williams made his way to the UFC last year after earning a KO victory on the Contender Series, but he’s yet to pick up a w in in the Octagon, having lost his two fights so far against Nassourdine Imavov and Mickey Gall.
