Now it happened again, this time to UFC Welterweight Jordan Williams. Williams had stopped at a gas station and left his car running while going in to get a drink (something that has always driven me up a wall, but I digress).
While inside, a man jumped in the driver seat and tried to back out.
When Williams walked out of the store, he noticed someone in his car and took action.
“At first I couldn’t really believe it, and then I was like, ‘Holy s—, there’s someone really in my car. So, I run up to the car, and I have a push-to-start car. So, if my keys aren’t within five feet of the car it won’t drive.
As I started to run towards the car it started to slowly back up. 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.’
I opened the door and, it’s funny, the first thing I did was throw the stuff I bought on the passenger seat, 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.“
What are the chances that two separate idiots try to steal two separate UFC fighters’ cars?
Granted, Jordan Williams doesn’t have near the name recognition as Derrick Lewis and is trying to right the ship after two losses to start his UFC career, but he’s still one of the baddest fighters on the planet.
Also, can we settle once and for all that leaving your car on when you run inside to buy something because “It’ll just be a minute” is so freaking dumb and you deserve to have you car stolen? Okay, maybe that’s a bit too far, but come on, you’re inviting some dope to try to run away with it, that’s on you too.
Either way, I’m happy the car wasn’t stolen and the would be thief got a lesson that will hopefully help him change his ways…
And how about the bright yellow fanny-pack on Jordan Williams? Now THAT is high fashion, ladies and gentlemen.
