Fans Flood MMA Fighter With Donations After Sending Sooners WR Spencer Jones Into Hospital After Fight
You’d be hard-pressed to find anybody that actually knew Spencer Jones and what college team he played for, but that all changed recently after a recent bar brawl in a restroom.
Earlier this month, a video surfaced of a Jones, a redshirt senior, appearing to be the aggressor in the bathroom of Logies on the Corner bar in Norman, Oklahoma and getting absolutely pummeled as a result.
Walker Brown said he was “defending myself” when he punched and slammed the Sooners wide receiver. What Jones did not know is Walker is a trained wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter.
Walker Brown has since created a GoFundMe to request donations for “a surgery from an injury I received while defending myself.” His attorney claims Brown suffered a “torn bicep” in the scuffle.
It reads as:
“Hi everyone. I am the guy in the bathroom fight video. I have laughed with the funny comments about my cowboy boots and cauliflower ear. I have not commented because there is an on-going investigation. I have been advised to get an attorney. I am also facing a surgery from an injury I received while defending myself and will be looking at some unplanned medical bills and time off of work recovering from the surgery. I am a full-time student who works two jobs.
First, I would like to thank you all for the generous support that I have received from all over the country. It is overwhelming in a good way! Strangers have even offered to help me cover the costs of defending myself and so I have set up this account for anyone who would like to contribute. I feel awkward doing this because I want to work and pay my own bills, but I am realizing that may be difficult for a little bit. I will say that YES, there was something that occurred prior to the start of the video as my nose doesn’t bleed for no reason. After I hire an attorney, I will make a statement so you will know my side of the story. Thank you again for all of the support.”
Comment from Walker’s attorney Steve Stice:
“My client would first like to state how much he appreciates the overwhelming support he has received from friends, family, and complete strangers as he deals with the aftermath of the events of February 13, 2021. As always, there is more to the story than what is depicted in the video. What is not shown is the original assault and battery suffered by Mr. Brown at the hands of Mr. Jones and his friend shortly before the captured footage. As can be seen, my client’s nose and clothing were bloodied prior to the beginning of the video. Mr. Brown was legally justified in defending himself in this matter. As a result, Mr. Brown received several injuries including a torn bicep which will require surgery. We will not make any further comment until the conclusion of the investigation by the authorities.”
As of this writing, Walker has received well over $40,000 in donations. Just take a look at some of the comments and you’ll see a bunch of Texas Longhorns fans donating a ton of money, because the rivalry between the two schools is just that real.
