MMA fighter Tara LaRosa restrains ‘aggressive’ anti-Trump protester at Veterans Day event (VIDEO)
Demonstrators were waving flags in honor of Veterans Day in North Portland on Sunday when an unknown female protester approached them, allegedly starting an argument which quickly escalated into a physical brawl.
MMA champion LaRosa – who was part of the flag-waving group – utilized her professional fighting technique to restrain the infuriated woman.
As the confrontation flared up, LaRosa apparently took the angry protester to the ground attempting to prevent the scuffle from further escalation.
In a video which was shared on social media, LaRosa is seen on top of the woman telling her to stop fighting and relax.
