For those who don't know, Polyana Viana is a legit dangerous fighter in the UFC who also happens to run a great Instagram. This fact was unfortunately unknown to the man who tried to rob her, which turned the mugging into one of the biggest mistakes of his life.


He might not have messed with her if she'd looked like this at the time...



Viana (aka "The Iron Lady") was waiting for an Uber in Rio de Janeiro when it all went down.

She told the story to MMAJunkie:

"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."

Bad move, robber! Realizing she'd have time to make a move before the alleged gun came out, Viana stood up and delivered a swift kick and two punches.

After that, things were pretty much over for the would-be robber:

"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.'"

It was later revealed the man's "gun" was actually just a cardboard cutout.

Before taking the man to jail, authorities had to take him to a hospital to have his injuries looked at. One kick from a UFC fighter can have a devastating effect on regular people.

Dana White, President of the UFC, uploaded a picture to give us an idea:



Twitter couldn't stop laughing at the robber's unfortunate decision:



He'll think twice before he tries anything else like this.

Polyana is the hero we all deserve!




After the attempted mugging, Viana commented that she "was fine" and that the robber "was scared I was going to beat him up more."

Honestly, robber, we get it. Have a good time in prison, where it's probably a good deal safer.

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
