I’m surprised nobody brought this up yet:
It’s interesting that this fighter has such an unimpressive record in the ring at 1-4, yet successfully fought off 2 attackers and scared the other 2 away. I’ve read a lot in this and other forums about how martial arts training is not very applicable to real street encounters. Not disputing any of that but based on Torrez’ performance he clearly had a totally different mindset at home than he does in the ring as he obviously should have, but this is also diametrically opposed to fighters that do well in the ring but have not handled street encounters well, which we’ve all seen videos of. I’m inclined to say mindset is a decisive factor in a street encounter regardless of training.
Does anybody else have information/thoughts about this? I’m really curious how the legal proceedings will turn out
