A Man Tried Robbing A Woman Who Was An MMA Fighter. Gets What He Deserved

Earlier this week two men attempted to steal the mobile phones of Monique Bastos and her friends in Acailandia, Brazil.

Only Monique Bastos is a professional MMA fighter.

Want to see what happened next? Yes, yes you do.

“I tried to hold my phone, and I realized they were not armed,” Bastos told MMAFighting.com after the incident. “When they tried to escape, I lifted the rear wheel of the bike and they fell on the ground. The guy who took my phone ran away, but I was able to get the other one.”

And get Bastos did, putting her would-be mugger, Wesley Sousa de Araujo, in a rear-naked choke, before dragging him into a triangle choke hold while waiting for police to make an arrest 15 minutes later.

Wildly, this isn’t the first time Ms. Bastos has had to use her fighting skills to stop a robbery. “I’ve been through this a few times before, and it’s the second time I fought back.”

After this video does the rounds, hopefully Monique won’t have to fight muggers in the street for a long time and instead, move onto some fairer fights back in the ring.
