An aspiring NFL star immediately regretted getting involved in a bar fight when it was discovered that his much smaller opponent was an MMA expert

An American football player picked the wrong guy to mess with when a bar fight got ugly

An American football player messed with the wrong person and almost paid for it with one eye

Spencer Jones, a broad recipient of the University of Oklahoma, got into a pub brawl and absorbed the worst of it, absorbed shots in the face, and was put down in a choke hold

The man he fought against was a trained wrestling and mixed martial arts fighter who was also involved in the fracas at a popular Oklahoma nightspot, according to his brother

It is unclear what exactly started the fight. Jones was heard screaming, “Get out of here,” before blows started flying

As you can see from the footage in the video player above, Jones was unprepared for the onslaught of violence that was facing him

“Dr (Perry) Brooks came out of this operation and said he was extraordinarily lucky at this point and lucky that he didn’t lose the eye entirely, “attorney Woodrow Glass told the student newspaper

“And so he was able to do a few things surgically to rebuild that eye socket, and believes everything will eventually return to normal, but it will take a while to fully recover””

“He was trying to de-escalate this situation,” said Glass, “but unfortunately, despite his best efforts, it was not de-escalated and he became the victim of that malicious attack you saw”

Former NFL-turned-podcaster Pat McAfee said well-known athletes need to be careful when putting themselves in situations where things could get out of hand

“If you go out drinking a lot, you will likely find yourself in a situation where you look around and say, ‘Not good,'” McAfee said on his podcast,

“You can’t just get into random drunken fights anymore. You have no idea what you’re messing with You have no idea what killer on the other side is
