First of all Guy is okay, although he suffered some serious wounding to his hand from the knife. I don't want to worry anyone with the thread title. HOWEVER, the guy who tried to use the knife on him is much worse off, with multiple broken facial and arm bones from getting his ass literally kicked around a mall parking lot where Guy found him attacking a woman!
Guy intervened in a public assault and got a knife pulled on him. The knife-puller got beaten half to death by the former King of Pancrase in return, and when the cops showed up it turned out he was on parole for some pretty serious charges.
Guy's hand is said to be badly injured from the knife, but like I said above, the attacker is MUCH worse off. We'll have Guy on Carson's Corner tonight to talk about it. The show begins at 8pm EST, Guy will be joining us at around 9:15pm EST.
tobtr.com/s/2783525 is the live link for the show! This is one of those "MMA vs. armed attacker" scenarios played out in real life with a former champ - thank god nobody was hurt worse. Tune in later this evening to hear the exact specifics of how it went down.

CagePotato offers a detailed piece on the attack.
“He wasn’t a big guy. He was maybe 150, 160 pounds. I’m presently about 200, 210 give or take, so I figured my physical size would be somewhat intimidating to him, which it wasn’t. I said, ‘Listen, the cops are called,’ and he said, ‘You called the cops?’ I was like, ‘Yeah,’ and he starts coming at me. It’s funny because he didn’t know how to fight. It was hilarious, actually. I just kind of grabbed him and held onto him with an overhook on the right side and he was trying to hit me with his left. I’m like, ‘Hey buddy, settle down…calm down,’ and all this stuff. He tried to bite at me and then he tried to grab my nuts with his left hand. Then I just had enough, so I did a head-and-arm-throw, one of my better throws. We hit the concrete and it knocked him out.”
“I didn’t expect him to get up. I figured one of two things: he’s either back off and talk shit, which I expected because he got handled pretty easily, or he’s coming. I was acting like I wasn’t really paying attention, but I was paying attention. Somehow in there he pulled a knife out, but I really didn’t see it because I really was paying attention up until then. I work with law enforcement and I work with our military. I have a contracting company that teaches hand-to-hand. I might even consider myself an expert at it. I didn’t see him pull it out. He came at me and I knew he was coming, so I kind of pushed him away and side-stepped. He was throwing a really kind of wild punch, which I thought was a punch — I didn’t know he had a knife in his hand — and I kind of blocked it with my left and hit him with the right and knocked him out again. When he fell down, the knife fell out of his hand and I was like, ‘Oh, shit. I got lucky. I could have got stuck.’ I didn’t even see it. When I looked at my hand I saw a little bit of blood, so I just put pressure on it. I didn’t realize how bad it was.”
“I went back over to the girl and picked her up because I accidentally pushed her when I was trying to get her out of the way and the guy starts rolling over crawling towards the knife. I kicked the knife about two or three feet away and he started crawling towards it, so I had to go after him again. I swear to God, just as I punch him in the face to knock him out the third time, the cops pull up and they pull out their tasers and I’m like, ‘No good deed goes unpunished.’ I got tased for trying to help this chick out. I didn’t get tased. Things got worked out. like, ‘I’m the good guy, not the bad guy.’ That was basically it.”
“I didn’t see the knife. That’s the reason I got caught the way I did. I didn’t see the knife until… I mean, he had slashed me on the hand and I didn’t feel it. It’s not because I’m a tough guy, I just really seriously, honestly didn’t feel it. This is the most amazing thing because he sliced through three of my tendons and it never hurt. When I went to the emergency room, I was just trying to get in there and get out because my son had a soccer game and I didn’t want to miss it and I also had my company’s — my company that I own’s Christmas party. I was the only one in the emergency room and then a guy came in with an aneurysm, so I knew that I wasn’t going to get seen, so I said the nurse, ‘Hey, could you Steri-Strip this for me and I’ll come back tomorrow and get stitches?’ So they were like, ‘Okay, let’s look at it.’ When they were looking at it I saw my tendons and I was like, ‘Oh goodness,’ and I shot a photo of it on my phone (see below, WARNING : NSFW). I called a surgeon buddy because his partner is one of the best hand surgeons in Texas and I thought I could see my tendon hanging out, so I sent him the picture and I was like, ‘Hey, can you get me an appointment?’ So I hadn’t even seen the emergency room doctor yet and I had an appointment with the best hand surgeon in Texas, and he said to go ahead and plan for surgery on Tuesday. So I was actually taken care of really well. It happened Sunday, Monday I got to see the surgeon, Tuesday I had the surgery and I’ve been on the mend since then and they say I can expect a one hundred percent recovery.”
“This is not the first time. I had a rougher upbringing than most guys. I’ve been stabbed before. I have a pretty good knife wound on the palm of my left hand, and one on my face, and I got stabbed in the hip once. It’s not my first time, but you never get used to it and act like nothing happened. I think the reason I was so calm and cool about it was that I didn’t actually feel it and I didn’t see the knife until it fell out of his limp hand. I’ve been very reflective about it since it happened because I kind of had a similar incident about eight or nine months ago and my wife was like, ‘You’ve got to stop doing shit like this. Let somebody else be Captain America.’ So I was like a little concerned about her and I had to plan out how I was going to tell her. Really, what it was is I’m a father now. I’ve got an older son who’s grown, but I’ve got two younger children and I’ve got a beautiful wife and I was thinking, ‘Man, I got lucky.’ It’s very tough to remember everything that happens in a fight. You think you remember, but generally it’s not how it really happened. I think he was really throwing that shot at my neck, which is how I got cut. Obviously, it could have ended in a much more serious situation. I’m just grateful that it didn’t.”
“Your biggest fear is that the girl isn’t going to press charges, but she’s been extremely grateful since it happened. Apparently this guy had been terrorizing her all day and terrorizing her three-year-old daughter, so they’re throwing the book at him. There was actually an outstanding warrant for him for a parole violation, so he’s been in prison before. This is not an ‘A-class’ citizen we’re dealing with. This is a guy who’s a pretty vicious little bastard and he gets to go back to prison and probably get another five or 10 years tacked on him, so good riddance. Hopefully they’ll keep him in there next time.”

Some sleuthing on the UG may have found the criminal that Meger stopped.

Ok... So I am not 100% sure of this but all of the information appears to match up. This guy was booked on 12/26/11 and he appears to have some steel apparatus holding the left side of his face in place. This leads me to believe that he was probably in the hospital for a week following his run in with Guy. All of the charges match up, including the warrant for parole violation. He appears to be a bit on the hefty side for 160 lbs but maybe he's short? Nevertheless, it's anyone's guess if this is the guy but there were too many similarities for me not to post this.
