Former MMA Fighter Mikey Burnett and Son Shot While Exiting Tulsa Gym
Bleacher Report – Former UFC fighter Mikey Burnett and his son, Freddie, were reportedly shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Monday night.
Tess Maune of News on 6 in Tulsa reported the story and noted both men “are expected to survive” the incident.
Maune cited a family member who said Burnett and Freddie were working out at a gym and had parked in a nearby parking lot. The police said two men attempted to rob them at their car. “We’re told Freddie tried to fight off the suspected robbers when they held up his dad,” Maune wrote.
Burnett was reportedly shot three times in the abdomen, while Freddie was shot in the leg.
This is shocking news but at least Mikey and his son are expected to make a full recovery. There are a few types of people in this world you should never try to rob and MMA fighters are one of them. What am I saying? The types of people you should never rob are PEOPLE because we live in a civilized society and if you need something that bad…work for it. We also have a built in safety net when you fall on hard times making robbery unnecessary.
