Jared ‘Flash’ Gordon might not be as fast as ‘The Flash’ but you don’t need super-speed to be a hero.
On one fateful night in the city, the UFC Lightweight fighter apprehended a man with a baseball bat. For whatever reason, the armed man thought it would be a good idea to attack Gordon and his family. Well, he thought wrong.
Within seconds, Gordon and another family member would subdue the attacker. Gordon grabbed ahold of the man’s weapon, taking the man down to the ground. The man would refuse to let go of the bat even after being held down by Gordon.
“Let it go!” Gordon said to the attacker. “I can’t trust you with it. You took a bat out on me!”
“Did I swing?” the attacker replied, which was met by a verbal onslaught by Gordon’s family who said he was going to hit them.
Following the man’s refusal to give up the weapon, Gordon would finally scoop up the baseball bat from his possession. With the man now disarmed, the family would ultimately let him walk away unharmed.
Even after everything that went down, the attacker would ask for his bat back… A family member of Gordon’s would reply: “We aren’t giving you your f*cking bat back. Go find a new one.”
Gordon would post the video of the altercation on Instagram, explaining his side of the story.
“Here’s me subduing a guy with a bat after he tried to attack my family and I with it. I don’t know how I restrained myself from beating his face in. My mother then went Karen and wanted to call the cops.”
