Jared Gordon may be 2-1 in the UFC, but he fought his way up through the minor leagues to earn his spot, so the dude knows how to fight. And those fighting skills came in handy when he and some buddies were chilling on a New York City street corner and were accosted by thugs.

What’s remarkable about the story attached to the vid and pics below is that the neighborhood where this all went down isn’t that bad – it’s certainly not the worst in the city.

Gordon ultimately sliced up his hand on a shattered window, but you have to think the fools who picked the fight learned not to mess with UFC fighters.
