Passengers fight back as Gracie brothers offer free ‘United Drag Defenses’

Passengers fight back as Gracie brothers offer free ‘United Drag Defenses’

Rener and Ryron Gracie brilliantly demonstrate a host of self-defence skills for air passengers who might be selected for ‘re-allocation’ by United Airlines

I’m sure you’ve all seen the shocking footage of a doctor being dragged off a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville after being ‘re-accommodated’ by security after passengers refused to leave the flight to free up space for airline staff.

It’s led to a host of posts, memes, jokes and photos mocking the airline for their ridiculously heavy-handed treatment.

The MMA community weighed in, with MMAFighting shooters Casey Leydon and Esther Lin and photographer/fighter Mike ‘The Truth’ Jackson having a little fun at United’s expense as they prepared to fly with the previously popular carrier.

But perhaps the best response came from Rener and Ryron Gracie, who produced a special United Airlines-themed episode of the Gracie Breakdown to show future United passengers how to deal with a similar incident, should it happen to them in future.
