The former UFC and Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold recently apparently fought off an attack from a homeless drug addict.
Rockhold was recently in a conversation with reporters from BJ Penn.com. He told them that he was attacked at a bus stop by a homeless drug addict and how he had to fend off her attack via a front kick. Here’s what he had to say:
She was on the bus stop bench, and she looked bad. Like, homeless, something along those lines. And she looked like, probably meth or something and just nasty, nasty look, a lot of crap all over her [face], maybe some blood or something I saw. She was super out of it. [She] glanced up at me like real quick, looked down. I didn’t think anything of it, and I just kind of just stayed on my path on the edge on the sidewalk and I started walking. As I got closer, she popped up out of nowhere and ran at me like some zombie or something. It was wild. It was like the last thing I expected. I was just walking and minding my own business with my dog, and this chick just runs at me within 15 feet or something. She just jumped and started to run at me like ‘arghhh’ and she started hocking a loogie like she was gonna spit on me. Like, it was like a full just like trying to scare me or infect me kind of thing. I don’t know what she was on, but it didn’t look like anything I want to be around.
It happened so quickly, so instinctually. The thing just ran at me and was hocking this loogie, and I was like, ‘what the fuck?’ And I didn’t know what to do. And as it got close to me I just reared up with just a vicious front kick and just launched that thing in the air and just like instinctually. And the thing just went up, landed on the ground and literally like started quivering like a vampire frying in the sun or something.
