Hard Punching Female UFC Fighter Makes Mugger Regret His Choices

Talk about picking the wrong person to pilfer!

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.

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…

Trump Punts Fauci’s Concerns About NFL Season Taking Place During Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump gave Dr. Anthony Fauci’s concerns over the upcoming NFL season starting during the pandemic a nice, big punt down field, which you can probably bet irked the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, stated that this season of pro-football wasn’t going to happen “unless players are essentially in a bubble.” Trump put Fauci in his place rather quickly by stating that the doctor “has nothing to do” with the NFL. That’s got to sting a little, don’t you think? The president definitely stripped Fauci of his oversized britches, didn’t he? Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “They are planning a very safe and controlled opening,” Trump tweeted. Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football. They are planning a very safe and controlled opening. However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1274006223013249026 Fauci recommended that players be “insulated from the community” and take a coronavirus test “nearly every day.” “If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year,” he said. The NFL has already released the game schedule for the 2020 season, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens over the next few months in regards to the pandemic and if there’s a second wave that might end the season before it has a chance to even start. The president has insisted on multiple occasions that he won’t be watching the games anyway due to the National Anthem protests that happen before every game. According to Ben Carson, several officials have tried to convince Trump to tune in this upcoming season,…
