Outnumbered, Bastos unfortunately lost her phone to one of the robbers who ran away, but it's what happened with the second robber — or rather, what happened to the second robber — that has people talking!
Bastos used her MMA skills to tie up the second guy in a headlock, locking her legs around his neck in a triangle choke and waiting there for 15 minutes until police arrived!
Ch-ch-check out the insane video of the attacker begging and pleading with Bastos (below)!!!
Sadly, thieves may well keep robbing Bastos — she said this has happened to her before — because it's just part of life in that part of the world.
She told reporters:
"I've been through this a few times before, and it's the second time I fought back. [The first time] there were two guys, and they were using knives, but I was able to use my jiu-jitsu and get my phone back."
