Right. You’re a mugger. You’re out to rob someone late at night. You’re also a coward, so you decide to try and steal from a young woman walking alone. How’s your luck? Well, garbage. You’ve picked MMA straw-weight Monique Bastos as a target! And she doesn’t take being robbed very well…
She was on her way to the gym in the city of Acailandia, Brazil when the man approached her. But within seconds, she’d put him in a ‘triangle’ leg hold and he was begging for mercy. Here’s a right translation of the pitiful squealing coming from the guy who makes his living robbing young women:
“Dad, Dad, I’m going to my dad. Call the police, father. Help! Help! Help, Jesus. Please, I did not rob. Why would I do this? Help. Help. Look at my wallet. Help. Help. Sir, help me. Please don’t show my card. This was the first time. She’s choking me. Where’s my mom? Aye, Aye, Aye. Help! Help! Please, I need my wallet. No, I did not rob anything, no…”
And here’s what badass Monique said about the situation:
“I was going to the gym, train. They arrived by bike, just taking my phone. I thought they were friends, but as soon as I realized they were not, I gave a tug on them and dropped the bike. The accomplice ended up taking my phone,” she says.
What is it with people trying their luck with MMA fighters? Remember that guy who harassed that woman outside an MMA gym? Crazy.
