Mugging an MMA Fighter Ends With Predictable Results to Mugger’s Face

The life of a mugger is a risky one, and not just because you’ve chosen a career path that will most likely end when you get arrested and tossed in jail.  No, holding strangers up for their valuables may be hazardous because there’s always that chance that you’re going to pick the wrong victim to rob and end up on the receiving end of a few well-placed fists of steel belonging to an MMA fighter.

Pictured is the bruised and battered face of Anthony Miranda, a Chicagoan and the alleged mugger who chose the absolute worst person to try and hold up when he attempted to rob a gentleman known only as Justin from Des Plaines, who also happens to be a 6-foot-2, 250-pound MMA fighter.  Judging by Miranda’s mugshot, I’ll say the encounter didn’t really swing in his favor.

The incident occurred in Chicago’s Southwest Side this past Friday night, when, while sitting in his car, Justin was approached by Miranda who asked the soon-to-be victim for a light for his cigarette.  Things turned felonious when Miranda allegedly pulled a gun and demanded cash, Justin’s phone and keys, and got intense when the $30 Justin gave him didn’t suffice, and Miranda ordered the MMA expert out of the car at gunpoint.

Right about then the tables were turned, and things went wrong for the 24-year-old Miranda.  Terribly, terribly wrong.

From the Chicago Sun Times

Justin said he looked at the man facing him, pistol pointing at his chest, and was pretty certain he was about to take a bullet.

“I wasn’t scared because I’m trained,” Justin explained.

Justin then demonstrated to a reporter the sudden, rather effective maneuver that disarmed his attacker.

“The round went off,” Justin continued. “I put him down to the ground. He was fighting. He didn’t want to give up.”

But at the same time, Justin said: “He was begging me to let him go. He said he has a baby.”

Justin then kept his attacker collared until police arrived.

For the record, the round that went off ended up in Miranda’s lower leg.  So instead of a handful of cash and a cell phone, the mugger has a hole in his ankle, a total mess where his face used to be, and, if he keeps going the way he is, a kid that won’t have a father around to help raise him.

Maybe getting whupped by a MMA fighter in a mugging gone way wrong might scare Anthony Miranda straight…or at least help point his criminal career in a different, and safer direction.

        Apparently YOU need reading lessons.  The thug was NOT satisfied with the ‘worthless paper’ that was willingly given.

        The citizen did the only thing he could have done because he felt his life was at stake. 

        Had you been robbed and killed You could only wear the sign of victim.  

        The man in the article that rightly fought for his life is not a victim, even had he been shot in the struggle.

        Keep practicing that cute move of rolling over and showing your belly, it suits you fine.

        Read before you write, he handed over $30 of worthless paper and the guy wasn’t satisfied. There are probably millions of instants where the pe0ple handed over their worthless paper and everything else and still got murdered. Being armed yourself may not work out for you , but, is gives you a fighting chance.

      A question for all you Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton loving gun grabbers out there trying to dissect the rights of Americans as you see fit…

      Your Daughter is leaving work at 10pm and must walk across a semi-lit parking lot. Suddenly, a car that was not there when she checked before locking up pulls up and a large man jumps out and attempts to grab her and drag her into his car.

     Would you rather her have…

    A. A cell phone to call you or the police who may be blocks or even miles away?

    B. A can of pepper spray that takes as long as 2 minutes to cause any real effect since law enforcement grade spray is unavailable to those not knowing where to buy it?

    C. A stun gun (or zapper) which will piss the attacker off and will likely be used on your daughter while she is raped and murdered?

    D. A Concealed yet readily accessible firearm that she has been trained to shoot by a professional at a licensed and well staffed shooting rang and practices with regularly?

    There is no question that NOTHING is fool proof when it comes to being attacked. But simply reading FBI crime reports and crime statistics show very clearly that since concealed carry was reinstated, violent crime has declined and violent crime on armed, trained individuals is FAR less likely to end in the victim being killed. Who cares if the criminal is killed in his/her effort… they bought their ticket and knew what they were getting into the day the decided to rob people.

     Want to take gun away from criminals…? Give them SERIOUS TIME if caught with illegal weapons. But DO NOT take the rights away from law abiding Americans who have every right there is to protect themselves, their family and their property… yes, even that worthless paper some speak of.

          Pollyanna world? Let’s be honest-most people live in the same world I live in. The vast majority of homeowners have never had to use a firearm for personal protection in their home. Many will argue the point, but that is simply reality. More homes have not been broken into and defended by firearm, then have been broken into and defended with a firearm. I am not trying to take the right of anyone away-just trying to get the other side to argue their case factually-which almost never happens. Just watch the 10 responses this gets from people insisting they’ve used their guns to defend themselves repeatedly. While many say it, I’ve never seen a statistic that backs up those claims.

        Sounds dramatic, but in real life this almost never happens.  My state relaxed conceal and carry laws several years ago, and since then there has been only one incident where a registered firearm has been discharged illegally.  In the meantime, several crimes have been stopped or prevented by legally armed citizens.  The opponents of this new law wailed about “Dodge City in the streets” and “people shot down by their own family members”, but it was all BS.  Never happens.  Tell the family that if they come sneaking into the house at 3:00 am in the dark that their lives are in danger, and everything is fine.

        Unless YOUR relatives are dimwits, Ducky.

      • Tru Gank

        Your scenario is not likely.  Do you know anybody who has shot their teenager sneaking out of the house?  I haven’t but I promise you I know at least 5  people including myself, that changed the course of a break in, chased off attacking street thugs and stopped an abusive spouse from sending her to her final resting place.  No matter what you think and people like you think, the reality is violence only responds to violence.  I PROMISE you that you cannot talk your way out of becoming a victim.  Talking is not the language of the battlefield.  The MMA guy had something in the place of a gun.  His training.  Perhaps we should make it mandatory for all US citizens to master Krav Maga and Brazilian Ju- Jitsu.  That would be an option but for those that are not experts, COLD steel is the next best thing.  I wish my 25-yo murdered niece would have had a gun.  Hide behind theory.  I will hide behind my 9 mm and anything that comes in my door uninvited, may God have mercy on his soul because I have no interest in conversation. How does your family feel about your inability to protect them?

          Read my original post-it was a hypothetical response to a hypothetical response. Someone else made the hypothetical situation up in the first place, I was responding in kind, making the point that you obviously missed-anyone can play that game to no end. What does it really prove on either side? So I thank you for not comprehending that point and wasting my time.

          Just a side note on the names you call others. The word retard used in the context you’ve used it can be quite offensive to many people. Surely you could have made your useless point without offending many people needlessly. But as others have done, you also chose to attack me and not my argument.

      • Anonymous

        Yawn. You are not realizing that guns are TOOLS. How would you feel if your teenage son was sneaking out and you ran up behind him and hit him in the head with a bat? Stop making straw man arguments, we could be here all day.

        You’re exactly right, life isn’t black and white. The same goes for you though. Just like it wouldn’t be right for EVERYONE to have guns, it’s not right for NO ONE to have guns either.

        I’m all for strict testing and training for civilians. I think people who CC should have the same training as cops, to be honest. I will agree that there are a lot of people out there that don’t deserve to have them. They are too stupid, irresponsible, etc.

        But for the rest of us — the ones who are good people that follow the rules — well, I’m afraid you will have to come and take them if you want them. You can have the lead first.

          Well, thanks for weighing in on this argument three months after it ended. I like how you chastise me for creating “straw man arguments” and then follow it up with one of your own. Go back and read my posts again. Copy and paste the parts where I made the arguments that guns should be taken away from anyone. I already read them, and you won’t find anything to copy and paste. I guess your post was really just about the witty banter at the end. Oh how I never tire of those cute phrases like”you can have the lead first.” You guys always have a way of convincing yourselves that you were the first person to come up with the words I’ve read on thousands of bumper stickers before. If you want to argue, start three months sooner, and use a phrase that hasn’t been turned into a bumper sticker 30 years ago.

    No, actually your statement is factually and demonstrably wrong. Wherever firearms laws allow citizens to possess and carry concealed guns the crime rate has dropped.

    Some few years ago a 19 year-old punk in San Francisco jumped out of a passing car, pointed a gun at a pedestrian on the sidewalk, and demanded his wallet. The pedestrian turned as if to pull out his wallet, but came up with a gun, shot and killed the punk. The pedestrian turned out to be a plain-clothed police officer. The punk’s parents sued the officer and the City of San Francisco for violating the punk’s civil rights.

    You are partially correct.  Not everybody should be holding a gun without the proper training.  I don’t think that there would be a lot of dead people because the criminals have the guns now.  Add number of dead bodies attributed to them to  the nominal increase in body count that might be attributed to the criminals having their brains blown out trying to commit a crime against the newly armed citizen = increase.   Hmmm…. yer right.  I guess that would increase the body count huh?  LOL!!

    Ask yourself this question; why is it that republicans have talked about doing welfare reform since Ronald Reagan for preisdent in 1980, but not one of them has attempted to cut or get rid of welfare programs? George W. Bush most recently had a chance for his first 6 years with a republican house and senate to pass any law he wanted to but didn’t. The elder Bush didn’t and your beloved Ronald Reagan didn’t do it. This is something that matters more than worrying about if the government is going to pass a bill to get rid of automatic weapons.

    Hey all you “Gun Lovers”

     I completely and totally agree with you all being a libertarian myself, but one thing I would like to point out is you are debating with people who think us all to be rednecks, uneducated people. Don’t give them any ammo by displaying any improper language. (by that I mean common fallacies) Don’t attack the person (funny and true as it may be) attack their illogical and statistically inaccurate argument. That is all. Most of you did a good job and I’m not saying any of you pro gun people are you wrong with your statements but it is just something to think about.

    exactly. As teens we played with 50 and 100 k volt stun guns zapping each other or ourselves numerous times. You also have to figure in the fact that batteries die, some men are bigger than others, any stun gun that “may” make a difference is going to be intended for law enforcement and is probably going to be a one shot device. Pepper spray… Iv’e seen people eat the shit. Lead on the other and is a nasty diet and in the proper hands is a sure thing.

    Who the hell cares what you want?  Judging from your name you’re a waste of space and societal resources a$$hole.  Good thing the people who founded the United States didn’t base the Constitution on the whims of weak, uneducated pieces of crap like you.

    Dude got what was coming to him. Strike one up to the good guys!!! All your gun arguments are boring.

    It is very interesting how a mugging gone bad has turned into a constitutional dialogue.  So allow me to throw in..What we should all be discussing, as human beings, is how to eliminate the need for firearms.  How can we promote intelligence over instincts and overcome whatever animalistic, base, instincts that promulgate crime.  Until we can do that.. there will be a need for protection in a form that will incapacitate would be violent attackers.  A large caliber firearm seems to be the most effective weapon currently available.

    Agreed. I’m a liberal-leaning centrist who loves my guns. 2A applies to all of us, red, blue, purple… 

    And I would use my guns to save the life of an R just as fast as I would a D or I. Anyone who says differently doesn’t deserve theirs, in my humble opinion.

    If you don’t want it, then move out of the country. 

    I don’t want a defenseless neighbor anyways. ;)

    “did fire one shot from his handgun, but that he didn’t mean to pull the trigger”

    So what you are really arguing is the need for better training. It’s not the gun’s fault the guy didn’t know how to use it. And a cop! Sad.

    Also: “Officer Jones and his daughter do not live together.”
    So it sounds to me like he wasn’t expecting her to be there. Maybe she should have called first, knowing her dad was an armed cop? Again, what you are really arguing is the need for better training.
    Do you honestly think that someone who KNOWS THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE WITH THEM are just going to start blasting away? That’s ridiculous. Have you ever been to a gun forum and read any of the conversations gun owners have about this subject? There are thousands and thousands of pages of discussion all over the Internet just about AMMO TYPES to ensure maximum safety for home defense, let alone scenario discussion, morality discussion, etc.

    TL;DR: Find a different article but that one is weaksauce.

    Says the person who said, “you a parent can’t different”… Do you know what using English means?

    • Think before you type

      I think he meant something like … 
      “you as a parent can’t differentiate”

      @ Think before you speak … Do you know what being condescending and correcting someone’s grammar, when yours is even worse means? Yep, you guessed it … you look like an ass lol.

    Typical Liberal , you find some instance where a gun is in the wrong or untrained hands and treat it like it’s the norm. So because someone doesn’t know how to handle a gun , none of us should have one ? Most criminals don’t know how to handle a gun well, but they accomplish what they set out to. I handle and shoot my guns, both long and hand, often. I hunt and or shoot, throughout the year. The long guns are all well sighted and get fired in at least 5-6 shooting sessions a year. My pistol (1) gets 20-30 rounds fired about 4-5 times a year. Those numbers aren’t what I would consider great, but I know how to use them, and they’re all clean, loaded and handy. So if one of the criminals that you libterds seem to love to defend, comes at me, it’ll be his last attack. and another thing. When you have to use a gun in defense, there should only be one story coming out the situation, MY LAWYER’S.

    Dead on

    You’re mistaken. And if you really want the truth ask an Australian about the gun grab that happened in their country. ALL violent crime is up, as it is in every city governed by liberals. We’ve lost more people in either Detroit and Chicago then Afghanistan . You libterds find some small fact that suits your argument and use it as if it were relevant . Guns STOP crime. Criminals will always have guns. The only ones that government takes guns from are the prospective victims.

    Their not there, firearms not fire arms. Hitler and the Nazis did not strengthen gun ownership laws, they loosened them (Jews could not buy guns, so they never registered any guns.) The right to Bare arms allows you to get a suntan, the right to bear arms allows you to own weapons. I absolutely agree with you on the Ben Franklin quote, well said.
