Daily Mail ^

He's skilled in cash-handling, customer service ... and fighting off would-be thieves.

When Texas gas station clerk Mayura Dissanyake saw his colleague being attacked by two men, the trained mixed martial arts professional unleashed his fury.

Security footage shows him running to his co-worker's defense outside Fuel Depot in Houston before laying into the alleged attackers with moves honed through years of cage fighting.

'The first guy I saw, I just kicked him in the face,' the native Sri Lankan told Click 2 Houston. 'Then I punched the other guy.'

Brit newspaper link, though, shows good still photos of the guy in the ring and with his MMA buddies.

LOL!! I believe the thug that was caught got tripped up because his pants were falling down. That should be a lesson to thugs — wear a belt you idiot.

Another lesson here:

You can be a nationally-known top athlete in Sri Lanka, but if you become a gas-station attendant in Houston….

It’s a PROMOTION.

Feel a little appreciation, much..? JUST WOW.

Looks like a couple of those boys had a bad day.

Good. That’ll teach ‘em.

Good on those guys who were stomping them.

If Fuel Depot's insurance contract requires that employees not resist, I bet you're right. However, a good case could be made that this guy was just defending his co-worker, not trying to protect Fuel Depot's property. That might help.

I’m wondering if that Doctor that shot the murderer this week will get fired. He had concealed carry and saved lives but...

I could be wrong, but it look like the the reason why he got attacked, was because he pulled into a parking spot while another car was trying to back into that spot

He’s a righty but the final two kicks that totally leveled Fat Albert with the problem pants there at the end were LEFTS.

Very nice work, I can’t help wondering how he would have turned out if he’d have been flattened by his rights.

Wow.

While that hospital might have a policy of forbidding firearms, I doubt that the hospital's insurance specifically forbids employees from carrying firearms or resisting attacks. So the hospital board of directors might be able to say, "We do have a no-gun policy, but we're not going to enforce it this time." without violating any contracts.

Just guesses.

Second bad pick of this kind in a couple of days. I think a couple of days ago a pro wrestler put a guy in a headlock until the cops came.

Armed robberies carry heavier sentences. I expect they were hoping to grab the bag out of his hands, making it grand theft at worst.

You’re probably right, but it’s okay. I’m sure someone will hire him. Perhaps as some executive’s bodyguard.

“Nice skills, but he’s lucky they didn’t have guns ready.”

Yea, the problem is that these animals will be back in business, sooner than later. A few well-placed projectiles will knock them out for good.

This is the kind of attitude we like to see in new Texans.
