Last Saturday, January 5, in Rio de Janeiro, the fighter from UFC, Polyana Viana, was the victim of an attempted assault. This was frustrated because the athlete, defending herself, gave the assailant a beating and left him immobilized until the authorities arrived. According to the Brazilian fighter, the events occurred while waiting for a taxi outside his apartment. It was there that the criminal intercepted him to ask him the time, and then threatened him with a fake pistol, according to what he indicated during an interview with local media.
“When I became aware of his presence, he was already very close to me. He asked me the time, but although I told him he did not leave. So I hid my cell phone around my waist and then he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to react, because I’m armed. ‘ That’s when he came up to me and pretended to put a gun on my back, but I realized that it was too soft to be a gun, “he said. Viana before the press, after the event that went viral.
The straw-weight fighter commented that a few punches, a kick, and a key were enough to subdue the thief. In this way, what she did was furor for several months, taking into account the insecurity for many women in the world. “I gave him two punches and a kick. The criminal fell and then I caught him in a Mata León (UFC submission technique). I held her there and then I placed her in a place and told her that we were going to wait for the police, ”said the fighter.
