UFC athlete Jordan Williams unleashed his mixed martial arts skills Thursday when an alleged car thief attempted to steal his car.
The carjacker climbed in the 30-year-old fighter’s driver’s side after Williams left his car running as he bought snacks from a gas station. When the thief attempted to back the car out of the parking lot, Williams chased the man down before he could turn out of the lot, opened the car door, and dragged the man out of the car.
After getting the man out of the car, Williams delivered multiple blows to the man’s head using his knee. The car thief was visibly hurt as he was seen grabbing his head while he ran away.
“I opened the door and, it’s funny, the first thing I did was throw the stuff I bought on the passenger seat,” Williams said. “And then I proceeded to punch the guy. After the first punch, he said, ‘OK, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.’ I was able to get some knees on him, as he was exiting out.”
Williams obtained the security footage of the incident from the Denver gas station, which he frequently goes to since it’s between his home and gym, and posted it on his Instagram account.
“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,” his caption read. “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.”
Jordan Williams has a 9-5 MMA record but is 0-2 so far in UFC.
