Men Try To Rob Woman Who Is A Brazilian MMA Fighter

MMA fighter Monique Bastos was headed to a jiu-jitsu class with two friends in Acailandia, Brazil when they were attaked by two thugs who wanted their phones. What happened next is a lesson on why you don’t try and rob just anybody….

Via MMA Fighting:

“I was going to my jiu-jitsu training when they arrived on a motorcycle and said they wanted our phones,” Bastos told “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.”

Bastos, who has six professional MMA fights on her record and a few jiu-jitsu matches and muay thai bouts, got him into a rear-naked choke and took him to the sidewalk, where she locked a triangle choke and waited for the police.

Wesley Sousa de Araujo was arrested 15 minutes later, and that 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,” she said. “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.”
