(London Independent) A man who allegedly tried to rob a woman ended up in a choke hold on the floor – after it turned out she was an MMA fighter.
The alleged would-be robber attempted to attack mixed martial arts champion Monique Bastos and a friend in the western Brazilian state of Maranhão, it has been claimed.
Wesley Sousa de Araujo and another man had earlier approached Ms Bastos and her friend on a motorbike and reportedly returned to threaten the two women unless they handed over their mobile phones in the incident in the city of Açailândia, MailOnline reported.
