A man has found out the hard way that it's a bad idea to try and rob a female Mixed Martial Arts athlete.
UFC fighter Polyana Viana was waiting outside her Rio de Janeiro apartment on the weekend, when the thief approached and threatened to take her phone.
Realising the danger, the Brazilian strawweight took matters into her own hands, using her MMA skills to drop the man and keep him immobilised until the police arrived.
Radio NZ reports that after giving the man a few kicks and punches, the woman sat him down and said, 'Now we'll wait for the police”.
