The Fightland stafff writing about a remarkable turn of events following Matt Hamill’s withdrawal from WSOF 19 last weekend:
Following his forced withdrawal from the fight, Matt Hamill found himself in a heroic situation. While driving in Utica, NY, he saw a car driving on the wrong side of the road, so he decided to follow it, stop it and figure out what was going on.
When he was able to pin the car down, he realized that the person driving was an unconscious woman and that her infant child was with her as well.
Hamill, who is deaf, smashed the windows with his hands to save the child because he couldn’t get the door to open. When the cops arrived, they found the woman was drunk and high, for which she was arrested.
I’m not a superstitious or religious guy, but when this kind of thing happens it can only feel like the universe sending a message. Hamill wouldn’t have been able to do this if he came out of retirement to fight Thiago Silva last weekend.
Good on Hamill. What a hero.
