The unknown man exhibited terrific poise, not commonly seen in street fights. As he patiently waited for his attack to move forward, the man looked for openings to mount his offense and to launch his counter strikes.

As the attacker pressed forward, the man laid back and bounced on his heels looking to end the fight with one big shot. He lands a couple of leg kicks for good measure before clocking the attacker with a looping right hook that sent the thug to the ground.

Amazingly, his opponent was able to make it back up to his feet. But he should have known better than to continue his useless march forward.

Listening closely to the audio, you can hear bystanders cautioning the attacker to no longer pursue the attack. Sensing that the man was in way over his head against a trained MMA fighter, his friends try to tell him to stop.

Another man comes up to the MMA fighter, although this one is understandably a little more hesitant.
