Video footage shows UFC legend subduing 'drunk' guy in Las Vegas restaurant
If there was a group of people that you absolutely, 100 per cent, should not pick a fight with, it would be UFC fighters. Imagine, for one moment, fighting someone who is actually paid to fight. Imagine how quickly you would be on the floor, how quickly you would be put in an armbar while a crowd of baying spectators laugh in your face and how embarrassed you would be.
I often think about how many people I would need with me in order to beat Conor McGregor in a fight. My estimate is around four or five. The first guy would charge in and get his head kicked off. But, while kicking, Conor would be left vulnerable to our second attack - and that's when we'd pin him down - losing one or two members along the way.
However, while I may be well aware that I would need reinforcements to even stand a chance against one of these guys, the same can't be said for some people.
I've never been to Las Vegas, but I can imagine it's full of drunk people. And, if there is one thing that drunk people love more than another beer, it's thinking they're tougher than they actually are.
Last night, Matt Serra - y'know the UFC legend - was out for a nice dinner in Las Vegas when he encountered a drunk guy causing trouble. In the video above, the guy appears to be hanging out with a passed out lady friend, causing Matt to crack a joke about Weekend at Bernie's.
However, shortly after uploading the light-hearted footage, Serra then posted a video that showed him on top of the same guy. "How do you spend the night before your @ufc HOF induction?!?" he wrote in the Instagram caption, "You subdue some asshole drunk that was threatening waiters then tries to swing on you."
Despite the fact that he has a man who is being inducted in the UFC hall of fame on top of him, the drunk guy still claims that he could f**k Serra up and that he will be pressing charges against the fighter.
Serra was inducted to the Hall of Fame on Thursday night. However, he wasn't the headliner, that label belonged to Ronda Rousey.
Rousey, largely seen as a revolutionary face in the world of fighting, used her speech to talk about the need for more women to get involved in the fight game.
"Words will never express how humbled I am that you gave me the honor of being the person that made all this possible,” she said.
“I’m not the first person who had the ability to do this, but I am here because I’m the first person you took the time to watch.
“Because of you, I am the first woman standing up here accepting this incredible honor,” she said.
“May I be the first of many. I look around and think, together we built this, this division, this sport, this revolution. Together we have redefined what it means to be strong, to be sexy. We have changed what it means to ‘fight like a girl.’”
If there's one lesson to take from this, it's not to try and scrap with a UFC fighter. Although, in all honesty, you should've known that already.
