the mma brothers are in the wrong. someone shoving you is not permission to sucker punch someone and wrestle them to the ground and try to choke them or ground and pound them. they will go bankrupt and possibly jail over this. the only people who think otherwise are a bunch of ufc bros that think street justice is real justice.
this is not how it works in the civilized world. it comes down to american culture. the answer is always escalate to the highest levels first and not last. it's the very problem with american police. they bring their gun out when truly minimal verbal judo could de-escalate the ENTIRE situation.
Watch the vid again Sarah. Buddy was already bleeding and then pushed while being asked “what you got “ which is an open invitation to fight. If you come on to someone by being aggressive and push them, especially while being a big “ Professional Athlete “ you are being the douchebag with no restraint by being the aggressor to what you perceive as an easy target to bully around. I believe they got what they deserved. If I was in a small confined space like that being pushed around and bleeding from being previously hit, I would be worried about my outcome and would do what I needed to make sure I’m the one walking away instead of him. I can only assume you have never been in a tight spot that you had to fight your way out of , especially when the odds looked stacked against you
