UFC Star Kevin Holland Stops Gunman During Shooting In America


UFC Star Kevin Holland Stops Gunman During Shooting In America

Kevin Holland, you are a hero.

The UFC star showed incredible bravery by subduing a gunman who had storm into a sushi restaurant and opened fire.

His amazing act of courage has seen him receive huge praise from the MMA community and the general public.


Holland, who recently made his welterweight debut after a stint at middleweight, was enjoying a bite to eat at Ra Sushi in Houston when a gunman burst through the doors.

Reports say the man, now known to be 24-year-old Jesus Edrai Cardiel Samaniego according to TMZ, then fired a single shot into the air while petrified diners ducked for cover.

But before the gunman even had a chance, Holland two other legends sprung into action and successfully apprehended him before anyone got hurt.

The three of them wrestled the gunman to ground and held him there while other restaurant-goers called for police assistance.


The actions of the brave trio undoubtedly saved the lives of a number of people.

Authorities quickly arrived on the scene and arrested Robinson, who now faces charges of possessing a stolen firearm and discharge of a firearm.


One of the courageous men who helped Holland told ABC 13: "We were eating and the next thing you know, a gunshot just popped off.

"So everything paused and then everybody started running to get down under a table.

"We got him down, apprehended him, got the gun away from him and the bag that he had."

Incredibly, this isn't the first time Holland has been forced to lend a helping hand when it comes to stopping criminals in their tracks.

Last year, the trash-talking UFC star chased down a would-be car thief who was allegedly attempting to steal his Dodge Charger.

In a clip posted online, Holland could be seen holding the man by the scruff of the neck and standing over him before police eventually arrived.
