Give this guy a spot in the Hall of Fame for (supposedly) not-so-smart criminals! First pick.
UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland caught a man who was running away from the police after allegedly being involved in a domestic violence incident. And guess what? It was all caught on camera!
Strickland, who became the UFC champ after beating Israel Adesanya at UFC 293 in September, shared a video of the incident and explained the crazy story behind it.
"The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, he jumped in his car and drove off. Security followed him, hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for awhile then jumped out and tried to hide at my house. I initially thought he was stealing my car," Sean described.
In the video, you can see a guy in a hurry walking onto Strickland's driveway, attempting to hide between two parked vehicles. Another camera angle shows Sean walking out of his house and toward the driveway with a handgun. The video then goes back to the first angle, showing Strickland holding the man at gunpoint.
The suspect seems to try walking away, with Sean and another person closely following. Strickland gives the guy a little push, making him fall to the ground, still at gunpoint.
The UFC champ mentions that the alleged criminal was arrested, although the charges are not clear.
Believe it or not, this isn't the first time a UFC fighter had to deal with an unwelcome guest. As previously reported, Jon Jones chased someone with a shotgun during an alleged attempted burglary in 2020.
