Renzo Gracie live tweets through an attempted mugging, MMA world spins

source: renzograciebjj

Renzo Gracie is one of the greatest fighters to ever walk the planet, and a ferocious tweeter. The two past times combined last night on the still occasionally mean streets of NY.

This time though, the streets were mean for the bad guys.

It started after 3:00 am early this Friday Morning.

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 ;-))))

Waiting for them... Are they really thinking I'm drunk??? They have to be kidding. Hahahaha

25th and 10ave ;-) they are getting closer lol ;-)

Ijust 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

JiuJitsu ;-))) never leave home without it ;-)

Please hold there for just a couple minutes ;-) be right back

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

Then there was a break in the Twitter feed for 15 minutes or so.

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 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 :-///

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.

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 .. The certainty that if it was an ordinary man he would be sad about his stolen goods. Fucking c--- cries like a bitch when the tide turns..

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...

My fucking hands hurt, hurt like hell...

Drove around two blocks... The other fellow disappear, I'm heading home... Angry for not finding the second one. Guess no sleeping tonight.

I knew it ;-) yessss

Then there was another break, of about 30 minutes. It seems Renzo finally found bad guy #2.

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 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...

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

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

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

@lucaatalla my brother calling you tomorrow to tell you some great stories, on the level of the ones in the Sydney Olympics in Australia when those Aborigines try to rob you by the train station near the Brazilian House ;-)

Read entire Twitter...

Gracie describes the mugging of the muggers:

Naturally, the MMA world offered spin offs.

First from Cesar Gracie:

Just left a taco truck in Stockton. I think 2 guys are following me

Getting close, do they think I'm on bath salts? They have to be kidding

Taking a pic they are pretending not to look at me. Be right back

Renzo responded, with good humor.

Renzo_Gracie_BJJ @RenzoGracieBJJ
@CesarGracieBJJ lol that was good ;-) miss you cousin, people thinking that beat a couple fools that come for your wallet is a big deal...

Then Jason "Mayhem" Miller got into the act.

Jason Mayhem Miller @mayhemmiller
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

Wait, i am in my bed in California. That was just a strange dream. Disregard.

And Renzo responded, with humor.

Renzo_Gracie_BJJ @RenzoGracieBJJ

Who's next? :-)

 First off, what's up folks.  I'm a new guy.  Anyways, I am an unbeliever, as far as the whold incident being true.  My reason has mainly to do with the second picture...the man apparently crouching down behind the white vehicle.  If you look closely, you'll notice the man's shirt is clean, pretty much unwrinkled.  Now, if you just got your ass beaten by BJJ legend, wouldn't your shirt be dirty, wrinkled, maybe a little ripped...maybe some blood or something?  Wouldn't your neck/head area be red or scratched?  Plus, the supposed muggers forearms and hands are not in view..conveniently. If I had just had my ass beaten, i would probably have my arms on the ground supporting me or maybe have a hand on the vehicle holding me up.  Plus, the whole time frame of everything happening...and typing on twitter...and taking pictures.  Then he has to throw in the whole story of how he thought he had gotten soft.  Man, wasn't this convenient, almost theatrical.  Then there is how Renzo always is posting these words-of-wisdom quotes.  You would think Renzo (a.k.a Yoda) wouldn't just attack someone because he sensed a disturbance in the force.  Whatever...maybe I watch too much of the show, "The First 48".  Once Renzo gets done walking on water, maybe he could fix the economy, famines, etc.  This whole thing was nothing more than a drunken fantasy lived out on twitter and I'm sure he'll be exposed.  May the force be with you all.

Renzo = genius. The likelihood of the guy with raccoon eyes showing up to make a police report is low. "Uh, yeah, we were trying to make sexy time with this Brazilian guy and he gave me black eyes and scared me".

LOL @ thinking that only Matrix bullet-time can defuse a situation! Never been a doorman, I take it? Based on experience, it is possible to size up a situation, the liklihood of personal harm, and deal with it appropriately. It's even possible to have a little fun while you're at it. You wouldn't get it, it's an alpha male thing...and who the fuck is Renal?!?

Hopefully, Justice is served and Renzo is severely punished by at least ten years, for misusing his MMA skills and beating up on untrained old men and bragging about it on twitter like a 12 year old school girl

  Murder charges against man who had to turn himself in twice before Detroit police arrested him   DETROIT — First-degree murder charges have been filed against an ex-con who had to turn himself in twice before Detroit police would arrest him in connection with a double slaying. Authorities say 36-year-old Adris McCullough got into an argument at a party Saturday, retrieved a rifle and opened fire. They say he shot four people, killing a 37-year-old and 23-year-old. McCullough tried to surrender at a fire station two hours later and fire officials called police, but no officers arrived. McCullough eventually went to a police station and was arrested. Police Chief Ralph Godbee has ordered an investigation into what went wrong. Wayne County prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller says McCullough also is charged with assault with intent to murder and felony firearms counts. Miller says she doesn’t think he has a lawyer. ^^lol and you think that the cops are going to press "serious charges" ? LMAO They got a guy here with a triple homicide who can't even get picked up the cops to turn himself in. It's time for you to maybe toughen up a little bit and learn to fend for yourself, the cops can't hold your hand through every possible dangerous situation guys.
