Michael Jordan is not only the greatest NBA player of all time, but he can also keep the peace too, apparently.

Jordan was in Las Vegas over the past weekend with his wife, Yvette, to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao square off in the “fight of the century.”

When the fight concluded—with Mayweather emerging victorious—Jordan left the MGM Grand. On his way out, he walked past an angry-looking man—that many believe to be an active gang member—who was upset with Jordan’s bodyguard for bumping into him.

But instead of just walking by, Jordan stopped and had some words with the man. Jordan managed to cool him down and stopped him from getting into it with his bodyguard. Otherwise, it looked like things were going to get very ugly very quickly.

So, to recap, the GOAT pretty much rolled up to the angry man and said something to the extent of, “I’m Michael Jordan, you don’t want to do this.”

And it worked.
