Woman beats and retrains thief before Police arrives

Wednesday, 9 January 2019
A would-be thief tried to rob a woman standing on her own in Rio. Turned out she was #UFC strawweight fighter Polyana Viana, who proceeded to clobber and restrain the mugger before police arrived 

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Polyana Viana, nicknamed "the Iron Lady", told website MMA Junkie the thief used a fake gun to try and steal her mobile phone while she waited outside her apartment block on Saturday night.
"When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me," Viana said.
"He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn't going to leave. So I already moved to put my cell phone in my waist.
"And then he said, 'Give me the phone. Don't try to react, because I'm armed.' Then he put his hand over [a gun], but I realised it was too soft.
"He was really close to me. So I thought 'if it's a gun, he won't have time to draw it.' So I stood up. I threw two punches and a kick. He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke.
"Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said 'now we'll wait for the police'."
