Former professional MMA fighter Javier Baez said he was sitting in his car outside his apartment around 4 a.m. Wednesday when Marrero hit his window with the knife.

I am a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu. I wrestled in college. I have eight professional fights. At MMA master“I have great training partners.”
