Earlier this week, Brazilian fighter Monique Bastos was on her way to the gym to work out when two men approached her and stole her cell phone.
One of the men took it and made off with it. But Bastos was able to catch the other man, knock him down, and put him into a “triangle choke,” which involves wrapping your legs around a person’s head and choking them out.
It must have hurt, too, because as you can see in the clip above, the guy was crying and begging for Bastos to let him go. According to Uproxx, he was even calling for his dad, his mom, and Jesus while he was stuck in the “triangle”:
“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? Aie, Aie, Aie. Help! Help! Please, I need my wallet. No, I did not rob anything, no.”
Monique, I am so proud of what you did. You have my respect. Granted, I would never hit or steal from a woman or take from anyone. I think it’s awesome you have the confidence to go after the person that did that to you, and I strongly believe that is something that should be taught to all women when they’re young.
