We all know the old adage about ‘strength in numbers’, but you have to think that the three young men who tried to mug 6 foot 4, 245 pound UFC heavyweight Antoni Hardonk in Los Angeles a week and a half ago were either very brave or very stupid – or both.

“I’ve worked security in the clubs and had some incidents there when people are fighting and you have to break up a fight, or somebody’s drunk and you have to guide them out, but this time, they wanted to have my money, they wanted to rob me, and that was a new experience for me,” Hardonk told UFC.com. “First they asked if I had some change so I looked in my wallet. They said they needed some help, and asked if I could help them out. I don’t mind helping people, so I took a look. Then suddenly the tone in their voice changed and they said ‘gimme your money.’

Cool read. This article personalizes Hardonk... he seems like a really good guy.

These guys where drinking the same water as the guys who tried brawling with the Overeem brothers. Criminals are so stupid.

Too bad he didn't get to work them over like the 72-year-old ex-boxer did to the punk that broke into his place.

We've been fortunate to have Hardonk stop by our Academy for some training and even though I wasn't there when we was from all accounts he is a super nice guy. Glad to hear he didn't get hurt in the process!

I really like Hardonk as a fighter, but he just isn't coming along so far. Dude isn't getting any younger, either. Still, hearing a story like this about the man makes me like him even more. Class act, Hardonk
