Ex-UFC fighter Quinlan punches out window to save man from car wreck

 

Jimmy Quinlan was a member of Team Sonnen on the Ultimate Fighter Season 18, but in his other life is a trained police officer. His police training came in handy yesterday when he witnessed a car wreck on the highway and jumped right to action:

"So this just happened right in front of me my hands and feet are bleeding from punching out his windshield to drag him out... Wish I had shoes on"

"There were all these little pieces of glass in my hands and my feet where I was kicking the glass out of the windshield. The guy was sideways in his truck hanging over his seatbelt full of blood, so the only way I could access his seatbelt was by smashing out the windshield and going inside the truck. Fluid was leaking out of the truck so I didn't want to waste time getting him out."

"I was on my way to training...between rolling in the gi, wrapping my hands for boxing and then drilling it doesn't look bad at all anymore, just scrapes."

"Although after drilling with Joe Lauzon for about an hour for his upcoming fight I pulled another small piece of glass out of my foot .. . I just wish I had thought to throw an MMA glove on from my car haha."
