    Note to self: don't try to rob a female UFC star

    Note to self: don't try to rob a female UFC star

    Another incident to prove that most criminals are stupid. Like this guy who tried to mug Polyana Viana. Nogoodnick told Viana that he had a gun. She reacted: two punches, one kick, and then a choke hold.

    Hint to Viana- in the choke hold, while stabilizing his body, twist your body violently to one side or the other based on your position.

    Polyana Viana taught a potential robber a painful lesson Saturday: Don't try to steal from a UFC fighter.

    Viana recalled her Saturday evening to Fernanda Prates of MMAjunkie, noting a man attempted to steal her phone but was unsuccessful:


    "When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me. 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 realized 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.'"


    Viana said she later found out the man didn't have a gun but rather a cardboard cutout in the shape of one. She also revealed this incident in Rio de Janeiro wasn't the only time someone attempted to steal her phone—two men previously tried to do the same in her old home of Belem, Brazil.


    The 26-year-old fighter sports a 1-1 record in UFC and 10-2 mark in mixed martial arts but hasn't fought since an August loss to JJ Aldrich at UFC 227.
    Great day for humans. Bad day for trash.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    What did Eli Wallach say in The Good, The Bad, The Ugly? Don't talk. Shoot.


    At least the perp didn't have a gun.
