Renzo Gracie Kicks Ass As Muggers Attempt To Attack Him In NYC

This has to be one of the best stories we have heard in a while. And it makes it even better that it is TDZ good friend Renzo Gracie. This story came out of the New York Post Yesterday.

Renzo Gracie, social media Batman.
The legendary MMA trainer and fighter beat up two would-be muggers not far from his Manhattan gym on Thursday night – and tweeted about it in real time.
Gracie, who has trained the likes of UFC stars Georges St. Pierre and Frankie Edgar and competed in the UFC himself, was approached by two men near West 25th Street and 10th Avenue. The men asked him if he had a cigarette and when he said no, one of them pounced.
“I told him I don’t smoke,” Gracie told MMAFighting.com. “He grabbed me by the arm and reached into my front pocket where my wallet was.”
The other man came from the other side, but the encounter didn’t last much longer.
“As the first one arrived, I hit him with a left and a right and he fell,” Gracie said. “When he fell, the other one took off running.”
Gracie, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu master, said he “had a good talk” with the grounded man and “hit him a couple more times.” He also had the time to snap a picture of the man facedown with his iPhone and post it to Twitter with the caption, “My fuckin hands hurt, hurt like hell.” Would-be mugger after being beaten up by Gracie.


The New Jersey resident, who is not a hulking man (5-foot-10, 171 pounds), wasn’t done there, though. Gracie, who had been walking to his car, raced to the vehicle in pursuit of the other thug. When he found him a few blocks away heading back toward his accomplice, Gracie jumped out of his car, ran at him from behind, jumped on his back and choked the man out. He said he hit the man in both eyes so he looks like “a raccoon.”
“I think it’s better than just arresting them,” Gracie said of his own brand of punishment. “It’s a good education process.”
Gracie was tweeting throughout the process, describing the men following him a few blocks and then the aftermath. He tweeted a picture of his scratched up and bruised hand afterward. Gracie’s cut up hands after beating up two would-be muggers.


“Next time I will use only the elbows, damn I miss that feeling, sometimes I wonder if the easy life has been making me soft,” Gracie wrote. “All those years in Brazil, without knowing if I would make it home had to count for something, I can’t lie I could have jump [sic] in a cab. But I could not help [sic], I could spot them from a mile away, walking was my option, thank you mayor Giuliani, nobody carries a gun in our beautiful state, my lucky day, their bad day. My hand hurts and @FrankieEdgar is here at 9:30am for some training.”
Memo to muggers in New York City: Be very aware of who you’re about to steal from.
“They found the best moment that they have attacked and they did,” Gracie said. “If it was someone who didn’t know how to find, they would be a victim for sure.”

Introducing the Daniel James Miller Foundation


The Daniel James Miller Foundation, a charitable organization seeking to provide financial assistance to the families of children suffering from Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), a disease which often requires a life-saving kidney transplant in children. Danny Jr. is the second child of UFC Middleweight Dan Miller, and his wife Kristin, and has battled PKD since his birth in January of 2010. Danny has seen some tough times and beaten the odds on more than one occasion to become the happy boy he is today. In less than two months Danny will undergo the kidney transplant he requires in order to have the chance, for the very first time, to live the normal, happy, care-free life that all children deserve. Unfortunately, this procedure is as expensive as it is necessary. In addition to the cost of the medication Danny will need for the rest of his life, the living donor’s surgery has been declared elective, forcing her to pay out of pocket to provide Danny with the kidney he requires. In order to help cover these costs, the Daniel James Miller Foundation has been established. Although currently all donations will go to the costs of Danny and his donor’s surgeries as well as Danny’s medication, in the future the Foundation hopes to continue its fundraising endeavors to not only help Danny and his family, but also to help other families battling PKD to make a positive difference in the lives of many children.

The foundation will be holding its first fundraising seminar on December 3rd at AMA Fight Club in Whippany, NJ. The fundraiser will include two sessions, with a two-hour no-gi grappling session in the morning, a lunchtime meet-and-greet and a two-hour afternoon muay thai session. For more information on the seminar, click the “upcoming fundraisers” link from the menu on the right.

Further information about PKD, Danny and how you can help, is also provided via the menu on the right. Follow the Daniel James Miller Foundation facebook page and this blog to stay up to date on the latest drives and Danny’s progress and recovery as he receives the wonderful gift of a new kidney.
