Renzo Gracie may be one of the first people to debunk an alleged mugging… and live tweet about it as it was happening.
Gracie was walking to his car in Manhattan late Thursday night/early Friday morning when he noticed a couple suspicious characters following him. A confrontation ensued and Gracie took care of the matter in his own unique style, going home afterwards, his fist the only thing worse for the wear.
Below is a collection of Renzo Gracie’s (@RenzoGracieBJJ) tweets (compiled by GracieMag.com) during the incident:

Waiting for them… Are they really thinking I’m drunk??? They have to be kidding. Hahahaha

Please hold there for just a couple minutes be right back
They are coming closer, asking for a cigaret lol can’t help but have a smile in my face. I don’t smoke. Pretend to wobble. They smile
Back as he runs, no chance to catch him… Even though I began to try to run after him, I realize How slow I was. (Expletive) it :-///
This one asks me why did I do that, pretending to be stupid, one little kick to the ribs makes him whine and apologize, as I’m writing this.
I ask him if he was planing to rob me, he says no. All he wanted was a cigarette, lol I can’t help but have a big smile upon my face, and ..
The certainty that if it was an ordinary man he would be sad about his stolen goods. (Expletive) cries like a bitch when the tide turns…
I can’t help but take a pic as his nose bleeds and he wines and asks why did I do that… Like he doesn’t know the reason…
My (expletive) hands hurt, hurt like hell…
Drove around two blocks… The other fellow disappear, I’m heading home… Angry for not finding the second one. Guess no sleeping tonight

There is basic things like you don’t come back to where the problem was.. You just don’t, I knew he would, just going around the block would
Be enough… Dumb (expletive) I just gave him the old style Raccoon, it has been a while since the last time I did.. Choke him out 3 times…
And before he woke up I did hit each eye socket at least twice, tomorrow he will wake up like a raccoon, and every time he woke up I was…
Whispering at his ears.. That’s what death feels like it.. Don’t do that again. My (expletive) hand hurts, :-/ a lot
Next time I will use only the elbows, damn I miss that feeling, sometimes I wonder if the easy life has been making me
Soft.. All those years in Brazil, without knowing if I would make it home had to count for something, I can’t lie I could have jump in a cab
But I could not help, I could spot them from a mile away, walking was my option, thank you mayor Giuliani, nobody carries a gun in our…
