Never Try Robbing an Ultimate Fighting Champion


Anthony Miranda stuck his gun into the drivers side window of a parked vehicle near 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue Friday night and asked the driver for a light before pointing a handgun at the man and demanded his money. After the driver handed over some cash, Miranda reportedly ordered him out of the car — which was a mistake. At some point, Miranda’s attention was diverted and the victim was able to grab control of the gun and the two wrestled. During the fight, Miranda accidentally discharged his gun, shooting himself in the ankle. The victim was a Ultimate Fighting Champion and easy pinned down the assailant until the police arrived. Miranda was taken to Holy Cross Hospital with a “face full of lacerations,” two black eyes and a gunshot wound.

Miranda, 24, was charged with armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. He was ordered held on $350,000 bond Sunday, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.
