“Here’s me subduing a guy with a bat after he tried to attack my family and I with it. I don’t know how I restrained myself from beating his face in. My mother then went Karen and wanted to call the cops,” Gordon wrote in the caption. 

In the video, we can see ‘Flash’ trying to snatch a baseball bat out of the attacker’s hands. Amidst their struggle, the attacker clears that he had no intentions of hitting them.
However, after a few minutes of struggle, Gordon successfully disarmed the guy. Even though the UFC fighter was in the position to hit the attacker, he avoided that. Instead, ‘Flash’ just took the bat away and let the attacker go.
The funny part of the video was that the attacker asked for his baseball bat back. To which Gordon replied, “go get a new one.” Many fans and even fellow UFC fighters lauded his actions in the comments section. 
Apparently, this is not the only time the 33-year-old got into a street fight. Previously, he faced a similar situation, where he exchanged jabs with a gang on the streets.
