Local MMA fighter gives carjacker more than he bargained for

(KMOV)-- Sal Woods was trying to be a nice guy when he gave an 18-year-old a ride, but he got more than he bargained for.

So did the teenager.

Sal is a Mixed Martial Arts fighter who was on his way to a weigh-in Saturday night in St. Louis when he spotted Jevon Jones, 18, and said he would give the stranger a ride to a few blocks away.

It wasn't long, though, before Jones tried to carjack Woods at gunpoint.

"I grabbed the gun and jammed it straight into his stomach, grabbed his other bicep so he couldn't punch me and I just started head-butting away," Woods said.

Woods was then able to wrestle Jones out of the car.

"He actually even kind of asked me to stop when we were outside the car and I said 'I'm not done until I finish you off'," Woods said.

It doesn't matter if you're in a Mixed Martial Arts cage or a Chevrolet Monte Carlo - don't mess with Sal Woods.
