Watch An Ex-MMA Fighter Choke Out A Knife-Wielding Shoplifter In His Store

If you’ve never seen the Viggo Mortensen classic thriller, “A History Of Violence,” we recommend you queue it up on your Netflix ASAP. It’s basically a movie about a normal-seeming guy who, surprise surprise, has a history of violence — though you’d never know because he’s living this white-picket-fence-American-dream-life in small town, USA. He even runs his own diner. Everyone in the town loves him. Average Joe.

Then some bad guys show up and he’s forced to kill again. Awesome.

That’s basically what’s happened here. Tom “Mate” Anderton lives two lives. One as the lovable owner of Tom’s Music Trade in Red Lion, PA. The other as an MMA cage fighter. So, naturally, when a shoplifter pulled a knife on him, his instincts kicked in and it was lights out for the idiot who tried to steal music without using the internet (the way the rest of us do it).

Watch footage of the whole thing below, as Tom walks us through exactly what was going down when he beat this dude’s arse. (For more fighting news, make sure you check out our affiliate MMA site “The Fight Network.”)
