Former MMA female fighter Tara LaRosa took down and restrained an angry protestor, who allegedly bit her on the chest, at a flag-waving ceremony on Sunday.

The Oregonian reports a woman took offense with a group of demonstrators waving flags in honor of Veterans Day and got into an argument with one of LaRosa’s counterparts, which escalated into a physical altercation.

LaRosa took the confrontational woman to the ground and controlled her. The woman allegedly bit LaRosa through her clothing, leaving bite marks on her chest. LaRosa remained on top of the woman and controlled her until she stopped fighting back. LaRosa and her group were representing the Proud Boys, a group that has been associated with the alt-right movement and allegedly been involved in violent clashes with other protestors.

No arrests were made.
