A New York City man bit off more than he could chew when he ended up wrestling with an experienced martial artist.
MMA fighter Ro Malabanan took down a homeless man who allegedly assaulted two people in Manhattan last week, the New York Post reported.
Malabanan, 44, posted video of the altercation on his personal Instagram page.
The jiu-jitsu black belt described seeing 28-year-old Samuel Frazier sucker punch a construction worker on his way to work.
After other witnesses said there were more victims, Malabanan and a group of men chased after Frazier.
My jiu-jitsu instincts just kicked in. I jumped on his back, Malabanan said of his confrontation with the man, according to the Post.
The suspect went on to make excuses for his actions after Malabanan restrained him, claiming his victims had been walking into me.
Malabanan wasnt having it.
Thats bulls***, bro, you still dont punch people in the face for no f***ing reason, the grappler said.
Cops soon arrived to handcuff Frazier.
