(FOX NEWS) – When a would-be thief saw 26-year-old Polyana Viana waiting for a taxi on Saturday outside her Rio de Janeiro apartment, he apparently concluded she was easy prey.
He asked her what time it was, she reportedly said, before trying to bully her into giving him her cellphone. He also told her he had a gun.
She quickly sized up the situation – it’s second nature for the UFC straw-weight, who has won 10 of her 12 professional fights.
“He was really close to me. So I thought, ‘If it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it,’” she told MMAJunkie.com in an interview. “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.’”
