UFC Fighter Chris Wilson Survives Armed Robbery In Brazil

UFC Fighter Chris Wilson survived an armed robbery with his family earlier this week in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

“As I came into the apartment complex, a guy held me up at gunpoint and then he called his friends. And then a total of five people came up to the apartment. They were armed and my family was in the bathroom – I’ve got two kids – so it was just a terrible situation,” he told The Canadian Press.

“And then they cleaned out whatever they wanted. They were after small stuff, but they took our TV and my laptop, and jewelry. And they took some of the kids’ clothing and Nike tennis shoes, which are expensive down here.

“Then they put everything in my car, made me take them somewhere. It was just terrible. Wasn’t sure if I was coming back from that one. But it all worked out.” [Canadian Press]

Wilson married a Brazilian woman and now lives and trains in Rio De Janeiro Brazil.

Chris Wilson takes on Brock Larson at UFC 98 “Evans vs Michida” on May 23 in Las Vegas.
