Oregon-Based 10th Planet-Trained MMA Fighters Foil Hotel Robbery

A would-be thief picked the wrong hotel to rob last week.

According to the LA Times, 31-year-old Luis Rosales walked into a hotel in Los Angeles’ Koreatown around midnight on Wednesday and pointed a gun at the night manager, telling him to fill his duffle bag with cash. When the suspect attempted to flee the scene, the manager grabbed him in a bear hug and managed to keep him from reaching the gun which he had put back into the bag, and called for help from a pair of guests who had exited the elevator in the hotel lobby.

The men, who happened to be competitors in last weekend’s World Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi Championship in Long Beach, quickly sprang into action.

Brent Alvarez, 33, who owns Twisted Web MMA, a 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu affiliate in Eugene, Oregon and Billy Denney, 28, who is one of his students, subdued the struggling assailant and Alvarez used a body lock and rear naked choke to hold the man until police arrived. Apparently he thought a Twister would be too flashy.

Throughout the incident, the pair tried to reassure the thief, who was begging them to let him go so he could see his young daughter who he claimed was the motivating factor in the robbery, that he had simply made a bad decision that will do his family more harm than good.

“He wasn’t trying to punch us; he just seemed like someone who had run out of options,” Alvarez said Friday evening. “I think back now and wonder what the hell was I doing? I should have hit him and knocked him out.”

We predict an influx of hotel workers from around the country will start smoking weed and training without the gi in the coming weeks.

I heard he spent all day watching videos of a certain Mrs that comments on here and " blew his wad" in the pre-robbery warm up thus gassing out in the main event.

Better takedown defense than I've seen from some pro fighters...looking at you Paul Daley.

Anyone notice at about the 2:20 mark some random dude just casually strolls across the hotel lobby like nothing is going on?
"Yep, a couple of guys struggling to subdue a gunman about 15 feet away. Just another night in K-town. Now where's that ice machine?"

That would have been a much shorter video if they were there for a K-1 tournament.

Apparently the robber didn't fight back as hard because he had to cut 21 pounds in the past 24 hours before the robbery attempt

Yes, they did share a joint with the robber to get him to calm down. Then all three of them ate all the muffins from the breakfast bar while waiting for the police to arrive.
MassNerder- November 7, 2011 at 9:23 am
I hope this serves as a lesson to you dirty Californians to stay the fuck out of Oregon...we don't want you here.
