MMA fighter Chris Shaw brutally attacks Home Invader with a hammer
IMF Muay Thai World Champion Chris Shaw sent a robber who tried to break into his house to the hospital after attacking him with a hammer.
On August 11, 2020, George Halliday, 45, stole some tools from Shaw’s van and then attempted to break into his home in Johnstone, Renfrewshire. Halliday was diagnosed with PTSD in 2017 and began battling heroin addiction after suffering a vicious stroke in 2010.
When Shaw woke up from the strange noise, he chased after Halliday, wearing only his boxer shorts and flip flops.
Apparently the MMA fighter had a hammer while Halliday was equipped with a chisel and a saw. Neighbors heard Shaw scream as he ran down the street.
And as the chase drew to a close, Shaw punched the thief and he collapsed to the ground. The 31-year-old veteran fighter then slammed Halliday with the hammer and then delivered punches and kicks that left the home invader in a bloody mess.
Moments later, Paisley Sherrif police arrested Shaw. Serious injuries from the attack took Halliday to hospital.
On March 11, Chris pleaded guilty to the assault charges against him and awaits sentencing next month.
Halliday pleaded guilty after his attack to multiple counts, including breaking into Shaw’s van, stealing it and attempting to break into his home.
Currently, Shaw is the only Scottish fighter signed for ONE Championship. He is a fierce competitor in the featherweight division, having had 39 wins during his professional MMA career.
His last fight was a test of his skills. At the end of February, he faced Vladimir Kuzmin in a kickboxing match.
The jaw-dropping slugfest wowed the crowd as both opponents landed back-to-back shots. Shaw fought tremendously, but in the end Kuzmin won by unanimous decision.
