Isn't this how the movie Con-Air starts?
Killing people, never a good thing.
But, in the situation, I can see how somebody would jump to the kill-or-be-killed mentality.
I doubt he intended to kill the guy, but, I guess these things happen.
There is something admirable about being able to summon the courage to defend one's loved ones, if that involving killing, then, yes, that's what it takes.
But, the simple act of killing is not admirable.
In a four against one situation like that you are going to have use an incredible amount of force to defend yourself, and that amount is likely to be lethal.
It is unfortunate that the guy died, but if four people are threatening you and your family it is best to take the strongest measures you can defend yourself and family. Four people are capable of killing an MMA fighter, no matter how well trained he is. He had to do what he had to do because they gave him no choice.

Interested in why I picked these books, or want to recommend me some more? Just pm me. I love books.
Too bad he didn't get the other three.
I enjoy how many people in here would calmly talk down burglars or use only safe karate against a crew of people who outnumbered you immensely. As if anyone here ever knows what the **** they would do in that situation. Ugh it stinks of reddit in here. Its not like he was walking down the street and got mugged, and had a chance to escape. These people broke into his HOME after telling him over the phone they were coming to kill him AND his family. They're lucky they didn't all leave in a hearse. Wtf kind of world do we live in where we condemn a man for saving not only his own life, but the lives of his wife and infant child?
Thats enough internet for today.
