CHICAGO (CBS) — Robbing a man who turned out to be an ultimate fighter proved to be a bad decision for a convicted felon, who is now in bad shape as he is held on bond.

Police say around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Anthony Miranda, 24, walked up to a car parked at 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue, just a few blocks from Midway International Airport.

Miranda asked the driver for a lighter, and the driver said he didn’t have one. Then Miranda pulled a handgun and demanded that the driver hand over his money, police said.

I like the excerpt. Where you ended, only the picture was needed to know the rest of the story.

I dunno. How about an object lesson about how crime doesn't pay?

This is what you get when you try beating a guy in the fist with your face.

was able to pin Miranda down until police arrived.

Looks like he was able to play with him like a cat with a bug until police arrived.

From the looks of it Miranda received warnings right and left.

Curious where the weapon was at the time the cops arrived?

That’s key so the intended victim doesn’t get shot for winning the fight!

This crime didn’t pay. I’ll wager he committed plenty of crimes that did pay.

This pinhead perp is damn lucky his intended ‘victim’ didn’t take his piece and stuff it up where the sun doesn’t shine.
