The fighter of Mixed martial artsPoliana Viana had a bad time after being a victim of an assault while waiting for a taxi in front of her house in Jacarepaguá, a neighborhood in the west of Rio de Janeiro. A man approached him and wanted to steal his cell phone, but she resisted and gave him a spanking that he will never forget.
"When I noticed his presence, he was already very close to me." He asked me the time, but even though I told him, he did not leave. Give me the phone.Not try to react, because I'm armed.It was when he approached and pretended to put a gun on my back, but I realized it was too soft to be a weapon, "Viana said.
The fighter explained in her interview that after realizing that it was unlikely she was being shot with a gun, she decided to attack. "I threw two punches and a kick. The criminal fell and then I caught him in a lion's bush. I kept it there and then put it in a place and told him we were going to wait for the police. "
When the troops arrived, the UFC fighter discovered that the criminal used to intimidate her. It was not a weapon, but a piece of cardboard in the shape of a weapon.
The octagon woman nicknamed "The Iron Lady" said that despite the situation, she always remained calm. "I was calm because he did not even react after the blows, I think he was scared."
