Spencer Jones, the Oklahoma Football player suffered injuries at the hand of an MMA-trained man. The injuries are so brutal in nature that his entire career hangs in a balance.
Walker Brown, a man who is trained in the mix martial arts had to set up a GoFundMe after his video viciously brawling with the footballer went viral. He seeks to use the money granted to him to cover legal and medical bills which came in subsequently after the incident.
The man who set up the GoFundMe for Brown said that the money will help him dealing with surgery and the time off work. The GoFundMe has already raise $28,960 out of its soft-cap of $50,000. Brown said:
I feel awkward doing this because I want to work and pay my own bills, but I am realizing that may be difficult for a little bit. I will say that YES, there was something that occurred prior to the start of the video as my nose doesn’t bleed for no reason.
Brown’s lawyer, Steve Stice made a statement on the GoFundMe page on Wednesday which said:
The viral video does not show the original assault and battery suffered by Mr. Walker at the hands of Mr. Jones and his friend.
Mr. Walker was legally justified in defending himself in this matter. As a result, Mr. Walker received several injuries including a torn bicep which will require surgery. We will not make any further comment until the conclusion of the investigation by the authorities.
While Brown only suffered a torn bicep, Spencer Jones had broken his left orbital – the bones surrounding his left eye.
Jones’ attorney Woody Glass revealed that Spencer was waiting for his friend and went in to check on him after he took too long to come out of the bar. After seeing his friend engaged in an argument, he tried to maintain the calm of the situation, which backfired and the brawl began.
