Antoni Hardonk adds 'Crime Fighter' to his list of professional accolades

"In a similar situation in the future, it would probably be better just to give them the money and be done with that. Obviously, I had much better (fighting) skills, but is it worth the risk? They could have had a gun, other knives, who knows? But I'm stubborn. And I fight to earn my money and that's a hard way to make a living. And I'm not just going to give it away to guys like that. I believe if you can do something to help someone else, you should. We're all here and we should all try to help each other if we can. It's the right thing to do. I just did what I thought was right. Really young guys, and I think they were probably on drugs or something. It's too bad. But I didn't think it was right just to stand by and do nothing."

-- UFC heavyweight and ex-kickboxing instructor Antoni Hardonk talks crime and punishment with Yahoo Sports after putting a little Dutch fear into the hearts of some wannabe LA thugs. The 6'4" 245-pound Hardonk rebuked the would-be attackers when they demanded his wallet and then watched the goons try their luck against a hapless pedestrian. The former K-1 fighter sprung into action and clowned the hoodlums -- who decided to drop the wallet and run rather than stick around and get Zulu'd.
