He states, “Someone’s trying to fight me” and continues to add, “So they came to get me they come downstairs.”

After mentioning that the attacker had been rather shorter than Bumstead had been back then, the former’s sudden punch swing didn’t really help him much. He recalls, “I pushed him back like this, grabbed the shirt, pulled them, and then just clocked them once. And he just like dropped and I hit him one more time and he just hit the ground and that was it.”

The attestation that this was the only time CBum let his aggressive side come out proves his mild nature. He speaks about how he has never really been a harsh man.
