This guy tried to rob the wrong one! 24 year old Anthony Miranda got his face displaced when he tried to rob and carjack a UFC fighter in Chicago! Cops say the victim was a 33-year-old mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championships. The near-victim said Miranda approached his car on near Kenneth Ave. and 55th St. and asked for a light.

The man, who did not want to be identified, said he didn’t have a light when Miranda pulled a gun, demanded valuables and told the driver to get out of the car, police said.

What happened next is probably what you would expect when someone tries to rob an MMA fighter: a struggle ensued. Miranda was left with bad bruises all over his face and a bullet in his ankle after the gun discharged during the presumably one-sided fight, according to the report.

The UFC fighter was able to hold Miranda on the ground until police arrived. Miranda got a trip to the hospital and is being held on $350,000 bail.

Miranda is on parole and has served time for multiple burglaries. He was released from prison in March 2010.
