MMA fighter Tara LaRosa restrained an agitated anti-Trump counterprotester at a flag-waving rally in Portland, Oregon.
LaRosa showed off her skills acquired in the octagon when a scuttle broke out between her and the unprovoked woman.
Per the New York Post:
Footage of the dustup retweeted by LaRosa shows the MMA legend atop a woman who identified herself as a professor and repeatedly said that she couldn’t breathe as the mixed martial artist pressed down on her.
“Call the cops,” LaRosa said. “Stop, stop, stop – relax.”
The woman beneath LaRosa denied that she assaulted anyone while another man can be heard yelling in the background: “How do you like the Proud Boys now?”
LaRosa accused the unidentified woman of provoking the flag-waving demonstrators, video shows.
The woman, triggered by the patriotic display, allegedly left bite marks on LaRosa’s chest and multiple scrapes on her knees and neck.
