A MIXED martial arts coach known as Godzilla was attacked in his home by a friend with a knife.
Professional heavyweight fighter Dayman Lake, 36, had to render Jamie Dunn, 33, unconscious twice to stop him.
The pair became pals when Dunn was trained by Mr Lake and revealed his mental health issues.
But in November 2020, Dunn turned up at Mr Lake's house in Chatham, Kent, at 10pm in an "agitated state", Maidstone crown court heard.
When they went into the garden to talk, Dunn stabbed him in the neck.
The victim gripped his attacker's neck to make him unconscious and did so again when he came to and continued to struggle.
He admitted wounding with intent and will be detained under the Mental Health Act indefinitely.
