Video: UFC vet Matt Hamill smashes car windows, rescues toddler from drunk driver

Unfortunately, this story will be omitted from his autobiography, as it was deemed "too violent" for Walmart.

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's ... a deaf fighter with heavy hands!

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight-turned World Series of Fighting (WSOF) attraction, Matt Hamill, put his punching power to good use late last week when he smashed a car window with his bare hands to rescue a toddler in need.

Appears his mamma was driving drunk -- and going the wrong way -- before veering off the road and passing out.

"Everyone was going like 70 miles per hour, she was driving the wrong way, just kind of swerving around," Hamill told "It seemed like Pac-Man, trying to avoid all the little ghosts. She was all over the place."

Responding officers charged the driver with felony DWI and the child was surrendered to family members.

Hamill was expected to compete at the WSOF 19 event late last month; however, "The Hammer" was felled by stomach issues and forced to withdraw. His opponent, Thiago Silva, went on to fight Teddy Holder and got KTFO in the first round.
