Stojnic recently spoke to Crna Hronika on what transpired on that night (via RT.com):
“When I saw on my video controller, a huge man even proportions physically [bigger] than me, striking a female person with a [closed fist to the head], I immediately ran out and reacted so that [she was] protected from the perpetrator. I conquered it and finally we accompanied the girl along with security to a taxi, and she did not want to report this case to the police. Unfortunately, in our country violence against women is becoming more and more [common] and my duty as a man, a citizen, and owner is that everyone in my facility feels safe, especially women.”
Stojnic went 0-2 in his UFC run, but garnered a professional mixed martial arts record of 13-3, 1 NC. He scored nine finishes in his career, five via knockout or TKO and four by way of submission.
