Greg the Barber -- I Want Revenge Over Choke Hold

9/6/2010 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Greg the Barber says he's definitely going to file a lawsuit after being choked out by a bouncer at a Hollywood nightclub back in July ... telling TMZ, "I'm like Larry H. Parker ... I need $2.1 million!"

As we first reported, Greg -- who famously knocked out Suge Knight back in 2008 -- was recently choked out in front of the Wonderland nightclub by an overreacting bouncer who has since been fired.

Greg tells TMZ the owner of Wonderland is desperately trying to talk him out of a lawsuit ... even "offering bottle service whenever I want" -- but Greg says the club "has to pay."

The club declined to comment.

Laughing at celebrities is fun.    

Suge knight should sue his ass then. He just thought he was a badass and got taken down and is embaressed now, sorry chump you don't get money for being embaressed or acting like an idiot.

Negro please.

Talkin' about suing that club completely nullifies any semblance of respect you got for knockin' Suge out.

Get outta here with that...

Looks like Greg has this one in the bag. He won't get millions but he'll get a little something. Probably won't be worth the grief he's going to get, like being blacklisted from any club worth going to in LA.

Oh, come on! The bouncer lost his job, which he should have. The club is trying to make nice and all you see is easy money. Had you received a broken bone or brain damage or something - ANYTHING - besides your dignity being hurt then yeah, you should sue. But this is something that happened because you were acting like an a$$. Go away, moocher!

I am no fighter, but come on. How does anyone
run up on someone who has a microphone to their
mouth, puts them in a choke hold and feel like
they are tough ? That was very weak, cowardly
and " Josie and the *****cat like ".

The bouncer should challenge him to a MMA
type of fight. If he wins he will gain some
dignity, if he loses, I would respect him.

If he doesn't challenge Greg to a fight then
he is a punk.

Here's what the club should do. They should offer Greg a shot at fighting the bouncer at the club in a MMA type of event. Winner takes all. Make the purse about 50 K or so and try to make money off of the event by owning the rights to the fight.
