Well, Jackson was doing his thing when the guy approached him and got violent. Unbeknownst to this guy, Jackson also doubles as a professional wrestler, and was able to take down the intoxicated gentleman with relative ease and place him in an MMA-style choke.

Jackson would later explain the incident on his Instagram, writing that he was “not trying to hurt this guy just trying to restrain him from swinging at me. Please know I don’t think fighting is the answer so try to avoid a fight if u can. Stay safe," he said.

According to the NY Post, Jackson performs as part of the MJ Live Show, a Las Vegas-based tribute concert to the late pop star. According to the show's website, he is one of the globe’s “top Michael Jackson tribute artists” and is “committed to bringing the magic of Michael Jackson to audiences around the world.”
