You know that moment in every action movie where the muscled up good guy kicks someone’s ass and then makes a totally baller one –liner? I always think “no way” that happens in real life.
However an accountant in Stellenbosch, South Africa proved me wrong with his totally SICK move after fighting an attacker. The dude KNOCKED out his mugger and posted a quick selfie to Facebook to celebrate. Bad ass!
Apparently Nathan Wood was all out of bubblegum when he left a nightclub with his friend the other night. Two men followed him into an alleyway where one of them brandished a knife and demanded he fork over money. Wood says:
"The main culprit tried to convince me it was in my best interest by brandishing a fairly large dagger and holding it to my throat."
However Wood was all like “that’s not a knife, this is a knife”- and pulled out his giant fist and knocked a motherf**ker out. He says;
"I then convinced the mugger that it was not in his best interest by knocking him unconscious with a well-timed punch."
The mugger’s companion fled the scene, I imagine after Wood stood there and said “Who’s next!?” So Wood dragged the man back out to the street, and snapped a selfie he posted to Facebook. Being a nice guy, he took the man’s jacket off and placed it under his head as he lay on the street before calling security to deal with this mess. He went on to say:
“If I hadn't knocked the guy out I believe I would have been either another crime statistic or another South African that ended up in a body-bag."
This story just hits you right in the feels, doesn’t it?
