Brandon Vera (UFC Fighter) was at his grappling trainers home, when two gunmen came in trying to rob them. Tough luck trying to rob a UFC trainer and Fighter.

Brandon Vera is coming off a life-changing experience, but right now he doesn’t have the time to focus on or think about it.

On Oct. 4, while at the home of his grappling trainer, Lloyd Irvin, in Accokeek, Md., Irvin’s home was broken into by two gunmen at 4:30 a.m.

The gunmen pointed their weapons at Vera, Irvin, along with Irvin’s wife and young son, while demanding cash and jewelry.

While one gunmen focused on Vera, the other forced Irvin to go into the bedroom to get the family jewelry. While in the bedroom, feeling he was far enough away that he wouldn’t be putting his family in jeopardy, Irvin made a move and disarmed the gunman.

The intruder ran off, screaming to his partner that the guy had got the gun, and his partner then also ran off.

But with Vera in the final stages of training, only a few days before leaving for the United Kingdom for his UFC 89 fight on Saturday night with Keith Jardine in Birmingham, he’s tried as best he can to remove it from his mind.

“I don’t want to talk about it until after the fight,” Vera said. “We were back training the next day.”

There was little choice, as this fight is the proverbial fork in the road for Vera’s career, and he’s facing a fighter in almost the same situation.

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

Wtf? If someone is pointing at gun at you and your family over money you dont play a hero. How did he know the other guy didn't have a gun too? Or a knife or something.

He was in a different room than his family it said.

Yes... with one gunman, who apparently escaped.

What a hero. I wish more people were like this man.
To much f*cking cowards these days who complain about the increased rate of attacks and robbery but are to afraid to do anything about it or stand up for themselves.

FASTER TOM!!!! RUNN!! He's got the gun!

Russell WTF!


Im sorry but what the hell are you talking about?
#14
I bet it was all an elaborate surprise for the family, while the other gunman took him away he was saying 'DONT WORRY! THESE ARENT REAL GUNS! We've been sent to tell you that you can get 10% off at Sears!!!!"

Then he had to take it too far and chase them away...

Replying. I'm not telling you to ignore yourself

Faster Tom Run is a shitty meme. Well, I say meme, but that implies it was somewhat amusing at one point.

*embarassed*



I seem to have missed out on this meme. But yeah, people need to realise that they become unfunny very quickly and stop posting them. Captain obvious right here.

Anti-meme alliance: they hate the lulz^^^


I hate the lulz when they're not there.

I smirked at the pear when I first saw it. I might have chuckled at some Chuck Norris jokes. I actually like Never Gonna Give You Up.

But "Run Tom Run" and "Russell what the ****?" are just bad. As is "tits on a whale"

Thing with these memes is however funny they are first time round, when you see them over and over again, it gradually makes you want to take a large rake to the poster's face.

Exactly. Nobody is stronger than a gun.

It's been out for a while, I think they're fine with moderation. It's really boring when it's just spam but I think the context served this one well here.

Yeah, damn the idiots who would rather live than say no to a stranger with a gun pointed to your face!

It's not necessarily cowardice if you give in to demands like that.

Life or death situation = You're the boss, chief.

Not only his life, but the life of his family. The other guy could have had a gun, and could have pointed it to his family. Suddenly, a simply robbery turned into a life and death situation and a possible shutout.

Hold up. If they pointed a gun to my face then they are the man in charge.
If they have a knife or no weapon at all then i think its best to know how to handle yourself in a fight.

I agree. Though even a knife might be pushing it. If he's intent on killing someone if he doesn't get what he wants, not worth the risk. But if he's just a punk looking to rob some unsuspecting chumps, then I can take a small gash or two while the bitch runs off.

Yeah man, we are on the same page here.
Sometimes you can just tell when some guy will actually use his knife, most just carry it because they are bitches and wont use it. But your right, its not worth the risk if he looks mental or is in a group. It also helps if you have a few friends with you to.
As you may tell ive sadly been in this situation a few times.
Bottom line is, only take the guy if you are confident you can have him, the adreneline kicks in so you can't feel minor scratches etc.

he may have risked his families life, but he didnt kill them.. so shut up and move on.
