Matt Serra once restrained a drunk man at a Las Vegas cafe and it was filmed.

Serra, who is known for his jiu-jitsu, didn’t have to do much to subdue the man causing trouble. Serra got the man in a mount position, but simply held him down and didn’t resort to violence. All of this took place the same week Serra was being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Matt Serra Looks Back On Restraining Drunk Man

During an appearance on the “JRE MMA Show,” Matt Serra explained to UFC color commentator Joe Rogan what was the breaking point that caused him to take the man down.

“We’re at the cafe and then you see them two walk in, the guy and his girlfriend,” Serra said. “They were really hammered. They left, he left her there. She slumped in the thing passed out. Then he came back and he came back really hostile. He was like throwing s*** at the f****** waiters and I go to my wife, I go, ‘We gotta get the f*** out of here.’ If something goes near my kids, I just know I gotta get out of there ’cause it’s not good. Sure enough, my waiter was bringing me my check and the guy got up. Instinctively, I got up, and then he turned right to me.”

Serra went on to say that the man’s response was hostile enough that it warranted him taking action.

“The guy looked at me, he goes, ‘You got a f****** problem?’ I’m already angled, I’m not gonna be on World Star Hip Hop, I’m already angled. So, then he takes that f****** shirt off and nothing’s gonna get better after that. So, I stepped in around the waist, put him down.”

Cooler heads prevailed as a security guard stepped in. Serra hesitated getting off of the man because he wasn’t confident that the guard could hold him down if needed.
