Botched Street Robbery on Female PRO MMA Fighter!

This ‘incident’ happened on September 2nd 2015, just over one month on I thought I would re-cover the said ‘incident’ and put this ‘attempted’ awful crime that happened back out there for even more people to see.

Monique Bastos and her friend were on their way to jiu-jitsu training in Acailandia, Brazil when two men demanded their phones!

Much to their surprise, Bastos turned out to be an MMA fighter and wouldn’t let them get away with their actions.

“I’ve been through this a few times before, and it’s the second time I fought back,” she told”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.”

In the video above, you can see how Bastos managed to capture the would-be thief and  then subdued him by a figure four leg lock around his neck to stop him from moving until the authorities showed up. Now, that’s some serious strength!
