(Video) MMA athlete praised for incredible showcase of self defense

A mixed martial artist from Australia recently found himself in a dire situation. The man in question is Aussie mixed martial artists, Viktor Lyall. Lyall was confronted by two men and a woman in an alleyway.

While we’re unsure what prompted the altercation, Lyall was certainly one to finish it – and in style.

The conflict appeared to have started off verbally but with harsh words and threats Lyall remained calm as the two men tried to get closer and escalate the conflict.

At one point, mixed martial artist maintains his cool as one of the men faints to throw a strike and simply pushes him back.

The conflict didn’t stop there either. Soon after the shirtless man attempted to do the same thing but was rebuffed with a Stockton slap.

Since the video has been making rounds on social media, a number of MMA athletes reacted to it.

BKFC star Bec Rodriguez posted the clip, saying: “Not all heroes wear capes. *back story* these two grubs were bashing a guy in the alley way, stomping on him when @impalervikki intervened & handed them some street justice!!”

UFC vet Suman Mokhtarian commented: “There’s nothing that makes me happier! I found my new street hero @impalervikki you SK 😂👊🏼”

Boxing world champion Shannon Briggs added: “They fight different in #brownsville #LETSGOCHAMP”

While MMA athlete Raquel Canuto wrote: “This was painful to watch lol i wish the guy in red got more lol and the girl… my gosh.”

And Conor McGregor’s training partner Peter Queally added: “Superb.”
