Millions Lawsuit! Joe Schilling MMA fighter knocks out Justin Balboa
The video shows Balboa (whose face was blurred by police officers in the video) telling police that a man - later identified as Schilling, the former Bellator fighter - knocked him out "for no reason."
"We were all having a good time and this guy just cracked me," Balboa said. "And then he chased me. He chased me, bro. Like he chased me. Hit me in the ass, bro. He was trying to kill me. For no reason. 'Cause he hates me."
Balboa described Schilling to police as "at least" 6-foot-5 ... and weighing about "fu**ing 270" pounds.
Later in the clip, when officers and medical personnel examined Balboa's face ... they all said he definitely needed stitches to fix his busted lip.
Balboa has since filed a civil lawsuit against Schilling and the bar ... with his attorney Robert Solomon, telling TMZ Sports that Balboa is also working with prosecutors and wants them to file charges against Schilling .
Schilling's part claims Balboa harassed him and others all night ... and says he only hit Balboa out of self-defense.
