A Knife-wielding Florida Man attacks former MMA fighter with a 14 inch knife, but gets grappled to the ground and subdued.
Omar Marrero made an unwise decision when he decided to allegedly attack a man with a knife in Miami the morning after Halloween.
Former pro MMA fighter Javier Baez said he was sitting in his car outside of his apartment around 4 a.m. Wednesday when Marrero hit his window with the knife.
When Baez got out, Marrero charged him with a second large knife and was promptly planted on the canvas, a surveillance video of the alleged incident released by Baez shows. Baez restrained the alleged attacker until Miami-Dade police arrived, who arrested Marrero.
Marrero was charged with two battery felonies and has pleaded not guilty.
“Once I started putting the choke in, he just started letting it go,” Baez told WPLG Local 10. “No one is worried about anything else but breathing when you’re losing air. … I’m trained all my life. I’m a black belt in jiu-jitsu. I wrestled in college. I’ve got eight pro fights. At MMA Masters, I’ve got great training partners.”
Baez, 34, fought from 2011-2018 and had a 5-2-1 record with appearances in various Florida regional promotions, according to his Tapology page.
