MMA fight­er slams and chokes out knife-wield­ing thief

A for­mer pro­fes­sion­al MMA fight­er in Flori­da turned the tables on a would-be knife-wield­ing crim­i­nal after he slammed the man and choked him out.
Javier Baez, a retired pro with eight fights, was in the park­ing lot of his Mia­mi apart­ment com­plex on Nov. 1 when a knife-wield­ing man con­front­ed him and attempt­ed to stab him, accord­ing to a report.

“Guy was out there scream­ing on the phone, lit­er­al­ly was fight­ing for a while with some woman,” Baez said.

“He tapped on my door win­dow. I told him to leave me alone, and then he came at me with a knife. I told him to leave me alone. I’m call­ing the cops. I hope he does­n’t break my win­dow. That’s all I cared about.”
Footage cap­tured the moment at about 4 a.m. when the man charged Baez with a 14-inch knife.
Block­ing the attempt, Baez picked the man up and slammed him into the ground before sink­ing in a choke.
“He got a knife and came run­ning at me. Well, the rest is on video,” accord­ing to Baez. “Sec­ond nature … When you prac­tice every day, you don’t think about it. Put his bel­ly to the floor, put my knee in his back, and called the cops.”
