Whether it’s Jon Jones with his hit and run incident, or Bellator’s Mike Richman getting busted by the California State Athletic Commission, fighters seem to be having a tough time following the rules.
UFC bantamweight Urijah Faber, on the other hand, had a run in with the law in his learning years which was unwarranted. The best part about the situation? It was with a cop that was a dwarf.
“Man, I got picked on before by a cop. Midget cop! He had it out for me, dude,” Faber recalled on Tuesday’s edition of Stud Show Radio. “I was in there studying. My buddies [Dustin and Dave] come in and they’re all drunk— came home from Arlington, our little sophomore year apartments. So, I’m in there studying and these guys come in there hammered and this midget cop like— He had a chip on his shoulder for me!”
Faber went on to explain that his friends were baseball players who liked to prove their mettle by wrestling the former WEC Bantamweight Champion. The three eventually broke into a wrestling match in an Arlington study room and two cops walked in, one of which was the little person. The little cop said he recognized Faber, and Faber was confused as to why. Faber said, “‘He goes… ‘Didn’t we chase you in a house the other day?’. And I’m like, ‘Nope.’”
“He’s like, ‘I recognize you from somewhere! Did you just get arrested?’ and I’m like, ‘No. Maybe the school newspaper! I’m a wrestler.’ He’s like, ‘Nah, you’re real familiar. So he’s trying to question me. I had to simmer him down. I’m like, ‘Look, I’m just in here studying. My buddies are in here hanging out,’ this and that.’”
The little cop motioned that he was keeping his eyes on Faber, and left the room. “Don’t mess with a midget cop. You’ll get served.”
Justin Buccholz, former UFC fighter and Stud Show Radio host, transitioned into the video that went viral this week where former cop Eric Casebolt forced a minor onto the ground and proceeded to pull a gun on other children after a fight broke out at a pool party.
Casebolt, realizing he was doomed, chose to resign and is now unemployed. While this is a temporary fix for the department, Buccholz threw out an idea that could help officers learn when to use which grappling holds.
“I got a solution for this, America,” Buchholz announced. “Just make all cops get a blue-belt rank in jiu-jitsu before they become cops. I mean, look at the way he tried to restrain this girl. She’s a teenage girl and he’s just trying to pull her hand. He’s pulling her hand and saying, ‘Get on your face!’. He could just restrain her immediately and not do any damage to her.”
