Robbery Advice: If you're about to rob a motel, don't pick the one with MMA fighters in it.

The fighters struggled for several minutes to subdue the armed man without hurting him, one of them said Friday evening. Los Angeles police commended Brent Alvarez, 33, and Billy Denney, 28, for their actions.
