“First I was like, ‘Damn, what are you doing here – especially alone?’ I was like, ‘This guy is a savage here.’”
“He was respectful. He said, ‘Hey man, you’re holding it down for the jiu-jitsu community. I admire you. I appreciate it.’
“He was cool about the whole situation.”
“He wouldn’t really tell me much. He was just like, ‘Yeah, man, (expletive) got crazy. These guys started throwing, I started throwing.’ One of his eyes was swollen. He was just like, ‘Yeah, man, I think they gave me a concussion, so he got down, too.”
“After that, he was going to walk out by himself, and I told my boy, I was like ‘Hey, man, make sure this guy gets out of here alright,’ because you know, there seemed to be some Russians in the club,”
