Ro Malabanan: Why The MMA Fighter’s Video Gone Viral?

The martial artist pinched the attacker to the ground and remained on top of the guy until police came.

On July 27, while en route to work in New York City, MMA fighter Ro Malabanan, 44, a Filipino American, stopped a brutal attack on a construction worker in a video that has since gone viral online. The warrior is hailed as “a hero” by all online users.

Malabanan, a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a yellow belt in judo, witnessed the attacker, subsequently identified as 28-year-old Samuel Frazier, sucker-punch a builder in Manhattan’s SoHo shopping district. This led to the incident. “I just got out of the subway and I was on Broadway and Prince, heading to work,” he reportedly claimed. “A third person showed up out of nowhere and simply sucker struck one of the guys and punched him on the side of his face.” Later, Malabanan described the occurrence on his Instagram page. “My jiu-jitsu instincts simply kicked in,” he said. I leaped up onto his back. He attempted to swing me off at that point, but for those of you who are knowledgeable, the seatbelt position dragged him to the ground, and I quickly grabbed his back and pinned him there. Then, until the arrival of the police, the martial arts expert remained on top of the suspect.

Users on social media praised his bravery, and numerous people referred to him as a hero for saving the victim. You are a super hero, one person said, while another claimed you did well and looked nice while doing it.
