Video: Female Fighter Stops Robbery with Triangle

September 4, 2015

A Must Watch Video!

Two men approached two women in Acailandia, Brazil, this past Tuesday in an attempt to rob them. Monique Bastos and a friend were on their way to jiu-jitsu class when two men approached her and asked for their cellphones. Monique has had six professional MMA fights as well as years of Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu experience and dealt with the situation in a way you have to see. She applied a rear naked, took down the robber, and held him with a reverse triangle choke until police arrived, and arrested him. Although the video only shows the end, it's a great way to see jiu-jitsu used for self-defense.
