    Mugger Dies after scuffle with wrestler.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.1017421


    A Newark thief was killed early Saturday after he got into a scuffle with a former high school wrestler while trying to rob the man, according to reports.

    Cops say Gian Davis, 30, approached two local college kids at around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday and asked them for change, NBC New York reported.

    When the men said no, Davis then asked if he could use one of their cell phones to call a cab.

    When one of the men replied that he'd call a cab for him, Davis asked to shake the man's hand but then tried to snatch the man's phone, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

    Davis grabbed the man and began hitting him in the head, prompting his pal - who had wrestled in high school - to put Davis in a headlock.

    Police sources told NBC the man's grip was so strong that Davis choked to death.

    The two men stayed on the scene, and when police arrived, Davis was unconscious. He was pronounce dead less than an hour later at University Hospital.

    The ex-wrestler and his friend have not been charged, and Essex County prosecutor assistant prosecutor Tom Fennelly told NBC they were cooperating with police.

    Davis' rap sheet included arrests for assault and theft, and he was last released from prison on July 22.

    Ugh... this is the scary part about the people who watch UFC and "know a few moves" but don't understand the reality of what they're doing. What I'm trying to say is if this guy had just supplemented his training with a little BJJ, this never would've happened.

    Why is this the scary part? A mugger attacked someone and got killed for his trouble.

    Yeah, I'm real scared about all those loose cannon wrestlers roaming the streets.

    He was a wrestler, applying a headlock. Nothing was said about the UFC.

    I'm not really scared knowing that some guys might try to UFC their way out of a scuffle. First of all, because I don't go around looking for fights, but secondly because I'd rather defend myself against a shitty no-clue flying triangle choke than a guy who realizes he doesn't know how to fisticuffs so he gets a weapon.

    Neither you nor I could say what would've happened.
