Jordan Williams just added another win to his record, but it wasn’t in a UFC ring. The 6’0” 170-pound fighter successfully fended off a car thief using only his bare fists. The altercation was documented on security camera footage, which the MMA superstar posted to his Instagram feed.
“So someone tried to steal my car today,” Williams told his fans. Attached to the post was a video Williams’ took on his phone. He recorded the security camera footage that was displayed on a monitor. The video showed the parking lot of a convenience store. Williams’ silver car was sitting idle in a spot when a man in a dark shirt entered the vehicle.
“There you go right there,” Jordan Williams said as he zoomed his camera toward the monitor. A bystander in the room pointed out that the carjacker “saw [Williams] go inside” before attempting the theft. The car thief then pulled out of the parking spot just as Williams exited the store. Williams saw that the driver tried to drive away but the UFC fighter sprinted toward the car.
Williams threw the driver-side door open and proceeded to pull the man out of the vehicle. With a few impressive moves, Williams forced the man out of the car. He then fled the scene. A stunned Williams stood for a moment and stared at the car thief as he ran away.
Jordan Williams addressed several issues with the incident in a caption for the post. “If you are wondering why my car was still on it’s the same reason why he couldn’t drive away,” he explained. “I have a push to start and my car won’t go unless the keys are within 5 ft of it and I have them on me always. Needless to say, my lesson was learned and I hope so was his.”
This was a blessing and a curse for Jordan Williams. The wannabe car thief used the remote start to enter the vehicle since Williams had forgotten to lock it. However, when the thief tried to flee with the stolen car, the engine shut off. That gave Williams enough time to kick it into high gear and fight for his car.
“Wish I would [have] hit him with the trip after the clinch work when I tossed him out of the whip finish off with some ground and pound,” Williams said, referencing a set of MMA moves. “But I’ll settle with getting my car back.”
While it’s hard to tell in the video, Jordan Williams does execute some stellar MMA moves on the alleged car thief. Williams kneed him in the face twice during the brief altercation. While fleeing, the carjacker can be seen holding his face. The extent of his injuries is unknown.
Williams continued his post, joking that “I know you see the stillness of that fannypack – fannyback game was on point this could be a commercial for them.” While his fanny pack game was on point, it was his quick reflexes and incredible courage that won the day.
