Hard Punching Female UFC Fighter Makes Mugger Regret His Choices

Talk about picking the wrong person to pilfer!

Published

UFC

A would-be mugger got way more than he expected when he thought a lone woman on the streets of Rio would be an easy mark. He was quickly disabused of that notion when the woman turned out to be a tough MMA fighter.

One minute the robber is a man with a plan, the next he was just another schlub with a face full of bruises instead of a pocket full of cash.

Strawweight UFC and MMA fighter Polyana Viana, nicknamed “the Iron Lady,” was waiting on an Uber in Rio, one of Brazil’s more dangerous cities — especially for tourists. Viana told police that a man approached her with a fake gun and demanded her valuables, Australia’s ABC reported.

Viana told police that the man asked her for the time but then the conversation turned grim.

“And then he said, ‘Give me the phone,” Viana said. “Don’t try to react, because I’m armed.’ Then he put his hand over [a gun], but I realized it was too soft.”

Then the “Iron Lady” struck.

“He was really close to me. So I thought ‘if it’s a gun, he won’t have time to draw it.’ So I stood up. I threw two punches and a kick. He fell, then I caught him in a rear-naked choke,” the fighter added.

She then sat down next to him as he nursed his wounds and called the police.

When police arrived, they discovered that the “gun” the unlucky robber had was a hunk of cardboard fashioned into the shape of a gun.

Bystanders were amazed and told police that Viana held the man down until officers arrived.

“I was fine because he didn’t even react after. Since he took the punches very quickly, I think he was scared. So he didn’t react anymore,” Viana said.

UFC president Dana White saluted Viana, tweeting an image of the fighter alongside the bruised and beaten robber.

“On the left is @Polyana_VianaDF, one of our @UFC fighters and on the right is the guy who tried to rob her #badfuckingidea,” White tweeted on Sunday.

Thuggish Michael Bennett Screams at NFL Camera Man for Doing His Job

Just add this to the pile of problems that the NFL has had to deal with in the last several years.

Eagles thug Michael Bennett was captured on video, Sunday, berating an NFL cameraman just for doing his job.

As he walked off the field Sunday, the defensive end began screaming at a cameraman who was just doing his job getting footage of the player during the Eagles’ loss to the New Orleans Saints.

With attitudes like this, the Eagles deserved to be knocked out of the hunt for Super Bowl gold.

In the video posted to Twitter, Bennett is seen heading off the field while a cameraman from CBS Philadelphia follows him. It is common for cameramen to follow players on the field if for no more than to get B roll images for later use.

But it appears that Bennett was unhappy with the cameraman for doing his job. Bennett can be seen angrily confronting the cameraman and yelling at him. Eventually, Bennett gets nearly in the cameraman’s face causing the media man to put his free hand up in the air to ward off the player. Bennett points the cameraman away and they part with the player continuing to berate the man.

Bennet, a long-time national anthem protester, has been given all sorts of passes by the media. This thug has a long record of being a distempered fool, but the media refuses to touch him. He was even given a pass for the slander he perpetrated against the Las Vegas Police Department when he claimed they abused him in 2017.

Bennett was in Vegas for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor fight in August of 2017 when he had a confrontation with the police there. He went national with accusations that the police racially profiled him, abused him, and illegally detained him. Eventually, the LVPD released police body cam video that refuted Bennett’s accusations. After heavily covering the accusations, the media quickly moved away from the story when the allegations were put in serious doubt. Bennett was never held to account for the claims.

Not only did the media move on from the Vegas police story, but the NFL also refused to investigate Bennett’s false accusations.

Bennett has had other troubles of late. The Super Bowl XLVIII player was cited for unnecessary roughness for his actions in the previous week’s game against the Bears. The league assessed him a $10,026 fine on the Eagles player.

Also, Bennett sparked a brief brawl during a game against Jacksonville in December. And he is reportedly penning a book he has titled, “How to Make White People Uncomfortable.”

Rapper Travis Scott Thumbs Nose at Calls to Quit Super Bowl, Claims NFL Donating to Social Justice

Travis Scott took the NFL’s halftime-show problem and used it to extort them into giving to charity.

Rapper Travis Scott has thumbed his nose at a growing number of black performers who have advised him to cancel his performance at the Super Bowl to show support for anti-American protester and former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Instead, Scott is pointing to his agreement with the league that he says will bring a large donation to social justice issues.

Rapper Travis Scott says the NFL has made a commitment to him to spend even more money on social justice causes as part of his deal to appear.

The Sicko Mode rapper says that he only signed on to appear with main stage stars Maroon 5 after the NFL agreed to donate a thus far undisclosed amount to an equally undisclosed organization advocating for social justice, according to Billboard.

Scott is now confirmed for an appearance during Super Bowl LIII to be held Sunday, Feb. 3, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium despite the mounting pressure from a number of black performers who have been working to get Travis to cancel his appearance.

A growing list of black performers has reportedly refused to join the Super Bowl half time show because of what they feel is the shoddy treatment the league has perpetrated against former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49ers player has gone unsigned by any team since the end of the 2016 season during which he created the national anthem protest.

Artists including Rihanna, Jay-Z, Cardi B, and Meek Mill, have all spoken out against the NFL and in support of Kaepernick.

Some reports maintain that Rappers Jay-Z and Meek Mill personally contacted Scott to warn him against performing at this year’s Super Bowl.

Pop superstar Rihanna also jumped in to attack the NFL over its treatment of Kaepernick and has reportedly put her foot down against any Super Bowl appearances to show support for Kaepernick.

Rapper Cardi B has repeatedly slammed the NFL saying she will not support the NFL because of its treatment of Kaepernick.
