Real-Life Action Hero Renzo Gracie Live-Tweets His Own Attempted Mugging [WTF AWESOME]

(Somewhere in Manhattan, there’s a dumb bastard with the phrase “IFL Pitbulls” reverse-imprinted in his forehead.)

Late last night in New York, legendary fighter/trainer Renzo Gracie was accosted by two men with obvious bad intentions. And since Renzo is one of the gamest S.O.B.s of all time, he wound up beating the shit out of them. Actually, let me re-phrase that: He beat the shit out of one of them, tracked down mugger #2 after he went running off into the night, “raccooned” mugger #2 (explanation below), and tweeted out a live play-by-play of the whole experience including photos. Are you kidding me? Renzo Gracie is like a prime Steven Seagal with an iPhone.

Now, did all this really happen, or was this entire situation just a staged social media infomercial for Gracie Jiu-Jitsu? I don’t know. But I want to believe. Here’s the entire story, from beginning to end, as taken from @RenzoGracieBJJ:

3:11 AM: 22nd street and 10th ave right now two guys following me, can’t help but have a big smile upon my face Im talking about a happy one ;-) )))

3:12 AM: Waiting for them… Are they really thinking I’m drunk??? They have to be kidding. Hahahaha

3:13 AM: 25th and 10ave ;-) they are getting closer lol ;-)

3:16 AM: I just stop to take a pic, they pretend they are looking at the window, can’t lie… My blood runs in a different speed, man I miss Brazil

3:17 AM: JiuJitsu ;-) )) never leave home without it ;-)

3:18 AM: Please hold there for just a couple minutes ;-) be right back

3:23 AM: They are coming closer, asking for a cigaret ;-) lol can’t help but have a smile in my face. I don’t smoke. Pretend to wobble. They smile

3:47 AM: My hands hurt… Can’t help but look at him the other one took off running, not much of a friend. Chicken :-/ I can still see him, he looks

3:49 AM: Back as he runs, no chance to catch him… Even though I began to try to run after him, I realize How slow I was. Fuck it :-///

3:53 AM: This one asks me why did I do that, pretending to be stupid, one little kick to the ribs makes him whine and apologize, as I’m writing this.

3:55 AM: I ask him if he was planing to rob me, he says no. All he wanted was a cigarette, lol I can’t help but have a big smile upon my face, and ..

3:57 AM: The certainty that if it was an ordinary man he would be sad about his stolen goods. Fucking cunt cries like a bitch when the tide turns…

3:58 AM: I can’t help but take a pic as his nose bleeds and he wines and asks why did I do that… Like he doesn’t know the reason…

3:59 AM: My fucking hands hurt, hurt like hell…

4:06 AM: Drove around two blocks… The other fellow disappear, I’m heading home… Angry for not finding the second one. Guess no sleeping tonight

4:26 AM: I knew it ;-) yessss

4:59 AM: There is basic things like you don’t come back to where the problem was.. You just don’t, I knew he would, just going around the block would

5:01 AM: Be enough… Dumb f%#^ I just gave him the old style Raccoon, it has been a while since the last time I did.. Choke him out 3 times…

5:03 AM: And before he woke up I did hit each eye socket at least twice, tomorrow he will wake up like a raccoon, and every time he woke up I was…

5:06 AM: Whispering at his ears.. That’s what death feels like it.. Don’t do that again. My fucking hand hurts, :-/ a lot

5:08 AM: Next time I will use only the elbows, damn I miss that feeling, sometimes I wonder if the easy life has been making me

5:09 AM: Soft.. All those years in Brazil, without knowing if I would make it home had to count for something, I can’t lie I could have jump in a cab

5:11 AM: But I could not help, I could spot them from a mile away, walking was my option, thank you mayor Giuliani, nobody carries a gun in our…

5:14 AM: Beautiful state, my lucky day, their bad day… My hand hurts and @FrankieEdgar is here at 9:30am for some training, shoot damn little guy

5:16 AM: Could not take a second pic guys sorry, believe I try, as I reach for my iPhone he almost took off :-/ fast mofo

    WTF! I see assault and battery charges coming soon. So, because someone follows and asks for a cigarette you're allowed to "Raccoon" their asses. Maybe Renzo was a little paranoid after smoking to much Chronic or something.

    @raton: I think there's a law in New York where if a stranger approaches you on a deserted street between 2-6 a.m., you're allowed to beat the shit out of him.

    hah! i fucking love renzo, this dude is ridiculous.

    Wow, I must be training jiu-jitsu wrong, it never hurts my hands like that!
  6. blackboxmma Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 07:25

    What kind of martial arts master brags about hurting people regardless of the circumstance? Renzo has the black eye for this one.

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 07:47

    ?@mayhemmiller sez: I was just walking through with my buddy in NYC near 20th and when he asked this stocky foreigner for a smoke, dude beat the hell out of him I'm retired from fighting, so I took off running, but this psycho with dreamy eyes got in his car and was searching to murder me
  8. rytek Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 07:53

    So you can just beat the hell out of people approaching you asking you for a cigarette? Renzo is nuts if he thinks nobody in NY is carrying a gun...

    God damn, Renzo, they were only trying to give you a copy of Watchtower!
  11. Jugger Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 08:54

    Choke a dude out and then punch him in the face while he's unconscious? Henzo has me a little conflicted with that.
  12. LOKI Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 10:15

    Renzo is one of the most genuinly nice and approchable guys in MMA. But anyone who has ever talked to him for more than 5 minutes can confirm 1st and foremost that he is a hustler! It wouldnt surprise me in the leat if this was a promotional also wouldnt surprise me if it worked. " You're born at point A. Everybody know at point B you gonna die. Everything in between is a negotiation!" - Renzo Gracie
  13. RwilsonR Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 11:14

    Let's hope these guys don't go looking for an easy lawsuit. Hunting a guy down in your car, choking him out three times, punching him while he is unconscious, whispering death threats in his ear, all documented on Twitter... sounds like Renzo could be in a bit of trouble. Keeping a guy against his will and choking him out could even bring kidnapping and deliberate infliction of pain (aka, torture). That could be quite a jail sentence, let alone lawsuit. This isnt Brazil. Our buses don't eat carrots, and our criminals use the courts to their advantage. Also, luckily for Renzo, neither of those guys had the striking skills of Matt Hughes.
  14. Ricardo Guitardo Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 11:36

    Seriously who tries to mug someone without a weapon? If this had happened where I am from Renzo would have been shot but we all know they are a bunch of idiot pussies in new york. Jiujitsu is an incredible fighting system but it wont stop a bullet or a knife.
  15. El Famous Burrito Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 11:38

    Luckily for the muggers, NY doesn't allow Renzo to practice Gun-jitsu either.
  16. Vera Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 12:17

    I'm surprised he wasn't gassed by the third Tweet !
  17. GistoftheFist Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 12:59

    It's not his fault the mugger didn't tap.
  18. MediumRare Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 03:25

    Fool. "thank you mayor Giuliani, nobody carries a gun in our…Beautiful state" You're just lucky you encountered amateurs. Otherwise you'd be full of holes. Plenty of guns in NY. All of them are stuffed in the pants of the serious criminals - not the morons you ran into.
  19. The Oracle of MMA Says:

    Fri, 09/07/12 - 05:14

    what a piece of shit. it sounds like gracie attacked before they even tried mugging him. looks to me that gracie is just a piece of shit who gets a god complex after a few drinks.
  20. HEY Says:

    Sat, 09/08/12 - 02:09

    If these guys were so innocent, why didn't they call the cops when Renzo started assaulting them?? That's what I thought...
  21. Buster Hyman Says:

  25. gingersamurai Says:

    Fri, 09/21/12 - 11:30

    you're right they could sue him but renzo would have an easy lawsuit as well for the damage to his hand he suffered while punhcing the guy in the face in self defense.
