UFC’s Kevin Holland had a wild couple of days over the weekend. After fighting Kyle Daukaus in a no-contest (due to accidental headbutt), he stopped an alleged carjacker and kept him at bay by using his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills.
Holland was on his way home when someone yelled: “Hey, they stole my car!” After seeing that car speed off the parking lot, he decided to follow it – but the carjacker ran off when he pulled up next to him.
He continued following him and, eventually, the carjacker first hit a tree; and then, as he tried to make the best of his escape, also hit a trailer nearby. That’s when the alleged thief tried to make his escape on foot.
Unfortunately for the suspect, Holland chased him down – and put his Jiu-Jitsu to good use. In a conversation with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, Holland explained what happened:
I didn’t really stop him, because he got the car and the car was wrecked. But yeah, I caught up to him.. Some guy comes zooming out of the parking lot and a guy is running behind him like: “Yo, he stole my car!”
So I was like: “Yo, I’ve been quarantined for a week, I didn’t get to finish my fight, so let’s go have a little fun…”
Instead of calling the cops, I call my coach, and I’m like: “Aye, this guy is driving through your neighborhood and he just stole a car, you should cut him off and we can catch him”, and he’s like: “Alright, bet.”
So I’m telling him the streets… BOOM, the guy hits a little trailer… That totals the car, then the guy gets out. I pull up behind and he runs off… So I’m chasing down after him…
Then I hit him with a little sweep, get on top, Knee On Belly, hit him with a little Khabib Scarf Hold. He was like: “I can’t breathe.” So that’s when I picked him up, put him on the curb. I didn’t wanna be like the cop with the “I can’t breathe” guy. So I was like fu*k it, put him over here.
