Polyana Principle

A man allegedly tried to steal a woman's cellphone over the weekend, but quickly learned that he chose the wrong person. UFC fighter Polyana Viana, who was waiting for an Uber outside her Rio de Janeiro apartment, reportedly punched and kicked him until police arrived to arrest him. UFC president Dana White tweeted the news with a picture of the bloodied man's face.

Viana was waiting for her car to arrive Saturday night when a man asked her for the time and wouldn't leave her proximity, she described in an interview with the website MMAjunkie Sunday.

"He asked me the time, I said it, and I saw he wasn't going to leave," she said. "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." It turned out that the "gun" was just a cardboard cut-out.

The 26-year-old strawweight, who made her UFC debut in 2018, followed her instinct and decided to strike first –– the best way she knew how.

2. Another example of why

I think some form of martial arts should be taught to women in junior high and high school gym classes.


Predators like that guy need to know that they can't get away with assaulting women.

3. Liberals and feminists believe the solution is simply to teach boys not to rape.

Any suggestion of teaching girls to defend themselves is met with accusations of victim blaming.

4. I think it needs to be

a two-pronged approach.

And yes, I'm aware of what liberals think about that subject, as I got into more than one scuffle over at DU for even suggesting that women need to learn self-defense tactics.

Blaming the victim...how ridiculous.

Teaching boys and men not to assault girls/women is a start, but there will always be boys/men who will be unable to be taught. They will assault and rape anyway...in which case, why set women up to be victims by not teaching them how to defend themselves if they need to...
