Strawweight fighter Monique Bastos was on the way for her jiu-jitsu training in Acailandia, Brazil, on Tuesday night, when two men attacked her and tried to steal her phone. The robbers had no idea that they were robbing an MMA fighter, who responded by putting one of the men in a pretty insane headlock with her legs.
“I was going to my jiu-jitsu training when they arrived on a motorcycle and said they wanted our phones,” Bastos told MMAFighting.com. “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.
That’s some pretty bad ass stuff right there.
