“My jiu-jitsu instincts just kicked in.” In a video he shared with his followers, Malabanan said, “I jumped on his back.” He tried to swing me off then — but for those of you in the know — a seatbelt position dragged him down to the floor, and I immediately took his back and pinned him to the ground.”

Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and yellow belt in judo holder Malabanan, 44, saw the incident as it was happening on the way to his boxing class, he told the New York Post.

“Play stupid games, and win stupid prizes.” “This guy assaulted six people before I got to him,” he added.

What Happened?

The New Yorker claimed to have seen Samuel Frazier, 28, sucker punch someone “right in front of” him in the video. Malabanan claimed he kept a close eye on the man so he could protect himself in case the man decided to attack.

After that, he asked the victim if he was alright. He said that when the man asserted that he was not okay, other people rushed to the scene to inquire after them.

Malabanan claimed that this is when the locals informed them that the man had hit several people and that they intended to prosecute him.

“I was like, alright, I’m down,” Malabanan said.

The MMA-trained Malabanan then pursued the alleged attacker, who was “about a block away,” and tackled and subdued him.

Malabanan said that as Frazier was being restrained, other nearby individuals who claimed to be by him circled the men and attempted to strike Frazier. Malabanan, however, told them to stop and call the police.

According to the Instagram video, the incident happened in front of a Converse store on Broadway.
