Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez Was An Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Fighter. Here is Video of His Only Fight
Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez, the 24-year-old behind the massacre of four U.S. Marines earlier today, was also enrolled in a local Mixed Martial Arts league: Chattanooga XFN.
After being placed in the back of the police car, Abdulazeez first asks if he can make a phone call and then asks if he can speak to a cop he knows. “Oh Lord, don’t start dropping police names at this point, man,” the arresting officer says.
He had a 1-0 record, according to the local MMA website.
Judo (meaning "gentle way") is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano . Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata,) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice. A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
