A video of a brawl between security guards and a man believed to be a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter at a condominium in Subang Jaya, Malaysia, has gone viral.

Posted by Discover Subang Jaya on Facebook, the video has garnered more than 6.2 million views.

The assailant is seen in an argument with a guard.

It erupts into a brawl after he kicks the guard's left shin, reported The Star.

Finally, four guards manage to subdue the man, a self-proclaimed MMA fighter, who is believed to have admitted "it was my mistake".

According to The Star, a Facebook user known as Darriush Kha Lili, who is believed to be the assailant, has spoken out to defend his action.

He said: "I didn't intend to hurt anyone. I could've fight back easily yea, I just threw a few kicks to keep him away, then these morons just jumped me, I didn't even fight back. I'm not dumb; I don't want problems with the police.

"For me it's just funny man. I admit it was my mistake. I slapped him, which I said sorry and they all did too. It was just a big misunderstanding," he said.

According to The Star, four people have since been remanded to assist in investigations into the incident.

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadar said that investigations showed the assailant, who is in his 20s, had gone to the building to visit a relative living there.

He said: "We received a report from a 53-year-old man who claimed that the security guards had been told by the relative living there to not allow the man to enter the building.

“The man got angry with the guards for not letting him in and threatened them, and a scuffle ensued."
