ORIGINAL REPORT, May 18: EL PASO, Texas -- A Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and mixed martial arts coach was hospitalized in intensive care after being attacked and severely beaten outside an east El Paso bar, police confirmed Tuesday.

A photograph of Jose Campuzano in his hospital bed was posted to social media by the group Fit Fam El Paso. (See that post at the end of this article.) In addition, a video of the attack was also posted, which you can watch in the video player at the top of this article.

The El Paso police gang unit was investigating the assault on Campuzano by a group outside of the bar EPTX, located along George Dieter, on Sunday.

"According to witnesses, he appeared intoxicated and stumbled out of the bar and into an individual who commenced beating on him. Others then jumped in on the beating," a police spokesman told ABC-7.

Fit Fam indicated Campuzano "was found unresponsive after being repeatedly stomped, and is currently intubated and fighting for his life in the ICU."

His family told ABC-7 he was listed in critical but stable condition on Tuesday as they wondered what "type of animals" could have attacked and continued beating on him, as the video shows, even after he was lying on the ground unconscious.

No arrests had yet been made in the attack as of Tuesday evening.

Campuzano's family and friends set up a GoFundMe account to fund his medical expenses. You can donate by clicking here.

    1. Absolutely correct. Bunch of animals taking advantage of a drunk is not manly in the least. Much less humane to your fellow man. These pigs will be found and punished.

      1. Nadodave the mutt giving advice amd now is the product of multicolor offspring. He associates color with violence. Classic low IQ Trumptard.

  1. Kvia has no description of the suspects? At the bar late theres nothing good that’s gonna happen, nothing. Third party encounters are dangerous and should be avoided when possible. Force multipliers are good but you have to use them effectively against multiple attackers

    1. Out in left field as usual in your b.s. comments. Hey nitwit there was no mention of guns in this article. Stay on topic.

    1. Uvacowboy you are a white maggot contributing to to your own demise. Familiarize your uneducated white ass with due process. You don’t know the details/facts. You see black and you assume “thug”. Classic coward trumpism.

      1. No. I see 6 people commuting violent crime so I label them as thugs. Skin color doesn’t have anything to do with it.

        Why do you ALWAYS have to play the race card in every story?

  2. Imagine madmike and his feces mouth friends in a restaurant talking. Lol. Don’t worry the y have a big mouth behind a screen but shake your hand in public. We know these pricks very well.
