Thanks to the widespread usage of CCTV and virtually everyone having the ability to record video on their mobile phones, if trouble breaks out these days during a night out on the town, there’s a good chance that it will have been caught on camera.
That’s led to a number of videos appearing online over the years of MMA stars being caught up in barroom brawls and drunken altercations, and in this article we’ll take a look at ten of the most infamous examples to see what happens when trained professionals use the skills and techniques they have learned outside of the cage.
Troubled MMA fighter Melvin Guillard got himself into a whole lot of trouble on Labor Day Weekend this year when he was caught on camera fighting multiple people at The Bar Standard in Denver, Colorado.
The video begins with Guillard appearing to be in a tense-standoff with another man that soon turns violent as the former UFC and Bellator lightweight fighter lands a punch that knocks him old cold.
‘The Young Assassin’ then turns his attention to another man in a white t-shirt who is trying to intervene and KO’s him as well with a right hand.
A woman then charges at him and he also appeared to strike her before others are finally able to intervene.
With his trademark died-blonde hair, Guillard was quickly identified in the video and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
As it turned out the fighter was due in court just days later facing charges of domestic violence, and afterwards he was arrested and charged with second and third degree assault in relation to the bar brawl.
