Thieves love to strike easy prey. But these Texas nimrods didn’t get that lesson while studying on the street and decided to rob the biggest, baddest, Texas gas station clerk in the state. As you’ll see in this surveillance video footage, the puny robbers take on a mammoth MMA fighter who just so happens to work part-time at the gas station. They should have done their research before choosing this place because they get the beatdown they deserve.

The incident happened on Houston’s South Side and the clerk Mayura Dissanayake is a semi-pro mixed martial arts fighter who has skills good enough to go pro. And as you’ll see in the video report below, this guy is not afraid to take on a gang of enemies. Check it out now!

When the video footage starts, you’ll watch Mayura’s fellow employee return to the store after a run to the bank. And a group of criminals in an SUV knew he was coming back with the money because they immediately left their SUV and started assaulting him.

“You see someone get beat up, you just go out,” Mayura said about seeing his friend and co-worker getting assaulted by numerous criminals.

You will see the behemoth MMA fighter destroy the criminals before they even see his approach.

“The first guy I saw, I just kicked him in the face,” Mayura said to the Houston-area reporter. “And I punched the other guy.”

Mayura has trained in mixed martial arts for more than a decade. And after working at the gas station, he goes to his gym to train five nights every week. It is more than a hobby for this fighter.

Throughout his fighting career, Mayura was named the MMA Champion for five consecutive years in his native country of Sri Lanka.

“We learn how to punch, how to kick, and how to move, so all that stuff you can use in the streets.”

Viewers like you have applauded Mayura for his quick response and massive skill. Here are a few reactions shared on the viral video footage we’ve included for you below.

“I love videos like this. Such a humble nice man until friends are in danger, then he can give people a good beating.”

“Why is this guy working as a store clerk? At worst he should be able to be getting big money as personal security for someone famous.”
