Bonaduce Dodged a Bullet Named Nitro

The legendary drama that unfolded at the FOX Reality Channel Really Awards in October -- when Dr. Danny Bonaduce performed some impromptu dental work on Jonny Fairplay -- could have gotten a lot worse. Or better ...

TMZ ran into Danny Lee Clark, a.k.a. Nitro from the former (and current) "American Gladiators," who attended the event with Fairplay -- but left early because, as he put it, he was "drunk."

Nitro told TMZ who he would have hit -- if he hadn't hit the bottle!
