Thug Tries to Steal UFC Fighter's Car, Instantly Regrets His Epic Mistake
Jordan Williams catches crook trying to steal his car, teaches him that crime doesn't pay
When a thug tried to steal a car in Denver, he got the wake-up call of a lifetime when the owner returned and stopped him in his tracks.
The crook learned a tough lesson while stealing the car in broad daylight on Thursday when the owner turned out to be a man who makes his living beating people in the Octagon.
UFC fighter Jordan Williams managed to stop the thief from getting away with his car, ensuring that the criminal instantly regretted his epic mistake.
Williams posted security footage of the moment he schooled the thug.

He told ESPN that he had left his car in the parking lot of his local Denver gas station while he ran inside to grab a drink with the vehicle's keyless fob in his pocket.
The thief was able to start the car with the push-button starter while Williams was inside the building but his fob was still in range of the vehicle.
As he left the store, Williams saw the man getting into his car and attempt to drive away.
"At first I couldn't really believe it," he told ESPN.
"And then I was like, 'Holy s**t, there's someone really in my car."
As Williams neared the car, the perp began backing up but didn't realize he hadn't released the parking brake.
At this point, it appears as though he thought he was going to get away with it.
"As I started to run towards the car, it started to slowly back up," he told the outlet, "and man, the look this guy gave me on his face through the window was like, 'Yeah, I got your car and this is happening.'"
The carjacker soon learned otherwise.
Williams, clad in a glorious fannypack, whipped open the door, grabbed the bad guy, and dragged him out of the car and into the parking lot.
If crime really does pay, then this guy was paid handsomely with a series of punches, knees, and kicks as he was humiliated by Williams.
"I opened the door and, it's funny, the first thing I did was throw the stuff I bought on the passenger seat," Williams told ESPN.
"And then I proceeded to punch the guy.
"After the first punch, he said, 'OK, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.'
"I was able to get some knees on him, as he was exiting out."
On Instagram, where Williams posted the security footage from the station, the UFC fighter wrote that he wished he could have taught the man a little bit more.
"Wish I would of [sic] 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," he said.
He closed by noting that, through it all, his fannypack remained unmoved.
"Also I know you see the stillness of that fannypack, fannyback game was on point this could be a commercial for them," he wrote.
There's no word on whether the perp has been identified or is being pursued — but Williams did post that the guy left his hat behind.
