If you somehow become friends with UFC fighter Kevin Holland, you can rest assured few people will mess with you. However, the odds are ever increasing that you will be involved in a situation that really calls for the police.
First he was spotted on video in October “appearing to apprehend an alleged car thief.” He literally chased down the suspect and held him down until the cops showed up.
Holland was up to his crime-fighting ways again on Monday evening when he was reportedly one of three people to wrestle a man with a gun to the ground at a restaurant near Houston.
“The incident took place around 11:30 p.m. local time when Houston police said a panic alarm went off at Ra Sushi in Highland Village,” SI.com reported. “According to HPD Sgt. Ricardo Salas, 40-50 people were inside the restaurant at the time and had to duck for cover when the suspect pulled out a gun and fired one time into the air, per ABC 13 in Houston.”
Holland then did what most everyone would do, he confirmed that he was
The Batman one of the men on the scene. He added that by the time police arrived, the trio had the alleged gunmen detained under control.
“I laugh a lot even when things aren’t funny,” Holland wrote in his Instagram story. “I smile when I should frown. Super blessed and thankful to see today. Kiss ya kids, hug ya family and treat random people with care. You never know what a mfer may be going through.”
In 30 professional fights he is 22-7, with one no contest. So far he is 2-0 in emergency situations… that we know of.
