The UFC strawweight fighter was outside of her apartment in Jacarepagua, a neighborhood in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, waiting for the uber while the man armed with a fake gun, attempted to steal her phone.
Talking about the incident, Viana said:
"When he saw I saw him, he sat next to me. He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn’t going to leave. So I already moved to put my cell phone in my waist. And then he said, ‘Give me the phone. Don’t try to react, because I’m armed.’ Then he put his hand over (a gun), but I realized it was too soft. 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. Then I sat him down in the same place we were before and said, ‘Now we’ll wait for the police.’”
Polyana was criticized alot with some arguing that the incident was not an example of what to do in such a scenario.
