What badass really means
So robbers also have a fair share of bad days. For one, attempting to swindle a female MMA fighter is the worst.
I bet we can’t tell a thief to stay out of trouble because they are always close to it. The best thing we can do is tell them to stay away from a girl who’s on her way to a jiu-jitsu training. Is that too specific? Well, this suspected robber knew it the hard way.
A would-be burglar in Brazil apparently tried to steal MMA fighter Monique Bastos’ phone one night. She was on her way to a combat training so she never knew she would use it a bit earlier.
The women’s strawweight was on her way with two friends when a pair of men attacked her. Narrating the incident she says:
“I was going to my jiu-jitsu training when they arrived on a motorcycle and said they wanted our phones.”
“I tried to hold my phone, and I realized they were not armed. 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.”
Who said girls are weak?
Aside from winning a belt, there’s another important use for mixed martial arts training: self-defence.
The MMA fighter managed to get the perpetrator in a triangle choke from his back. She held the screaming guy who almost looks like he’s dying until cops arrived.
Authorities were able to arrest robbery suspect Wesley Sousa de Araujo. Unsurprisingly, it was not the first time Bastos had to stop a robbery.
“I’ve been through this a few times before, and it’s the second time I fought back.”
“There were two guys, and they were using knives, but I was able to use my jiu-jitsu and get my phone back. It’s a huge risk, but I did it to defend myself and my friends, so I used what I learned.”
I would cry too…
