Trying to steal from a UFC fighter is a bad business decision for any pro thief. The man who tried to steal from UFC fighter, Jordan Williams got off easy, all things considered. Williams himself posted a video of the incident on his IG account. He had literally just parked his car outside of a gas station convenience store. As he proceeds to walk into the store, the man that would try to steal his car walks out.
Making A Run For It
Williams would go on to mention on social media that his car is push to start. That’s why the thief had a bit of a rough time when looking to drive away. From the video though, we can clearly see that he has no trouble opening the door of the car. It’s not clear if Williams left the car unlocked or not. The car is wired to not start though if the key is more than 5 feet away from the vehicle. As Williams comes rushing back towards the car with the keys, the thief is getting a chance to back out and drive off!
The Things The Thief Must Have Seen
The IG video which is featured below seems to be sped up. In any case, though, we still have a lot of doubts about the climax of the ordeal. The thief probably saw his life flashing before his eyes as Williams rushed back to the car. Williams yanks the door open, and the thief is the one that gets out of the car and runs away. The UFC fighter was able to recuperate the vehicle quickly. A couple of things have been left unanswered for sure! Like how he got a chance to see the video! Did you take your car back to, then park it in the same spot and go see the video of what happened? Most people wouldn’t want to go back to that gas station in their lives!
No UFC Style Beat Down
If you clicked on this article hoping to see a UFC fighter beat down on a car thief, we’re sorry to burst your bubble. Jordan Williams did mention that he has some regrets over not charging after the wannabe thief when he got his car back. He mentioned,
“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’ Future In UFC
The incident took place in Denver, Colorado. This is where Williams is currently training after being signed by the company in September of last year. He is one of the fighters that have landed a contract with the company after being on Dana White‘s Contender Series.
Knowing Dana White, he’s going to try and make sure that Williams gets his chance to showcase what he can do for the company in the near future. There’s no way that the UFC boss is going to pass up the opportunity to pull off some sort of publicity stunt around this incident.
