    Mixed Martial Arts Fan takes out Knife Wielding Pyscho

    Joseph Lozito fought for his life in subway face-off with knife-wielding madman Maksim Gelman

    He came eye to eye with a killer - and decided it wasn't time for him to die.

    Instead, Joseph Lozito, a 6-foot-2, 270-pound mixed martial arts buff, helped bring knife-wielding maniac Maksim Gelman's deadly rampage to a shrieking halt aboard a subway train.

    "I wasn't going to go down without a fight," Lozito said Sunday from his bed at Bellevue Hospital. "I took his best shots, and I am still standing."

    Thanks to Gezere for the news find! http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=104009

    Apparently Lozito took him down with a 'single leg sweep' who then attempted to control the wrist of the knife hand.

    Pff, I expect YOU of all people to know by now how the site works!

    One thread is original discussion thread, as you see I've given note to it in the first post. This thread is the Front Page formatted thread with a nice picture and such.
