(KPRC) A Houston, Texas convenience store clerk turned the tables on a pair of accused robbers on July 10, and the entire incident was caught on camera.

Mayura Dissanyake works at a Fuel Depot, but he's also a semi-professional mixed martial arts fighter.

He was behind the counter when he noticed his co-worker returning to the store after a run to the bank.

Dissanyake saw two men jump out of an SUV and attack his co-worker. They were trying to grab the bank bag he was carrying.

The store's surveillance cameras were recording as Dissanayake ran outside and kicked one of the alleged robbers in the face.

"The first guy I saw, I just kicked him in the face," he said. "Then I punched the other guy."

They were moves he learned from cage matches. Dissanyake has been involved with mixed martial arts for more than a decade. He says he was the national champion for five consecutive years in his native Sri Lanka.
