Besides the fact that except for a few, the majority of mixed martial arts clothing brands are god awful and ooze douchebaggery, add one more reason to not wear your MMA gear on vacation: You might get stabbed.
According to a story on GuamPDN.com, some dude nearly got stabbed in a restaurant in the U.S. colony for wearing an MMA team shirt that his attacker didn’t like.
Here’s the breakdown of what happened:
“Dana Lance Leon, 35, was charged with assault as a misdemeanor. At approximately 3 a.m. on Sunday, Leon was sitting at Linda’s Cafe in Tamuning wearing a T-shirt supporting a mixed martial arts alliance. A second man entered the restaurant wearing a T-shirt supporting a different mixed martial arts alliance, according to the declaration.
After entering, the second man began talking to Leon, who “had no interest in talking with the man and thought the topic had become invasive, especially given their different martial arts allegiances,” the declaration states.
Leon allegedly stood up, and grabbed a seven-inch steak knife from the table. He allegedly held it over the second man’s head in a stabbing position. Two off-duty police officers heard the commotion and subdued Leon, according to the declaration.”
This dude took keeping it real for his team to a whole other level.
Since no mention of who the the opposing teams were was made, we can only speculate that they got their hands on some VHS copies of old PRIDE events and figure that Chuteboxe’s rivalry with BTT or Hammer House was still alive and well.
