MMA Stops Alleged NYC Murderer

Mr. Joe Lozito credits mixed martial arts for his heroic actions on a New York City subway car over the weekend, where he subdued knife-weilding alleged murderer Maksim Gelman until police arrived to make the arrest. Lozito’s actions halted Gelman’s alleged 4 victim killing spree. “I knew I had to do something or he was going to kill me.” Lozito told Fox News Insider anchor and ex-UFC broadcaster Brian Kilmeade.¬†When confronted by Gelman, Lozito, a long time MMA fan, reacted with a takedown he has seen countless times on the UFC. Lozito has never trained mixed martial arts, but says that “If you watch fighting or you watch football, you know the easiest way to try to get somebody down… you go for the waist or go for the legs to take them down.”

This is another incredible testament to the countless benefits of the sport of MMA. Shout out to Joe Lozito, the subway hero.

    Good For you, Joe! I think it’s great that simply by watching UFC he was able to absorb enough self defense/fighting know-how to save his own life. I hope the slasher rots in jail.
