” I said I was going to call the police. He said, ‘call the cops; then he was afraid I was going to beat him once more.
27- year- old marital mixed artist Polyana Viana of Brazil quelled an attempted mugger- an obvious outcome considering she has a 10-2 record as a fighter.
When she was waiting for an Uber in front of her apartment in Rio de Janeiro this past weekend, Viana explains that a man confronts her.
“When the man saw I saw him, he sat next to me,” Viana said.”He asked for the time, I answered him, and I later discover he wasn’t going to leave. So I already move my cellphone to my waist. Later he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to take any action, because I’m armed.’ Then he takes a gun, but I realize it was too soft”.
Polyana Viana’s since proved correct as the gun was only a cardboard cutout of one.
“He moves closer to me. So I thought, ‘ if it is a gun, he won’t have time to draw it.’ So I stood up. Two punches an one kick I threw. He fell; Now I caught him in a rear-naked choke. So I sat him down in the same place we were before, and I said, We will now wait for police.”
Since the vigilant fighter, Viana put the failed criminal’s arm waited in a kimura-like position until help arrived while Viana filed a report with the police the would-be mugger was brought in urgent facility care before sent to the prison, where he was released in an irrelevant matter.
Viana concedes that the area she was in is one she recognizes as a dangerous, but the MMA star has been waiting close to the building because of this. But after battling off her attacker, the criminal wanted to be brought to the safety of the police.
