Felipe Colares is a former UFC featherweight fighter… Who recently put his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills to great use – by stopping an alleged thief in Rio de Janeiro!
Namely, he stopped a man accused of stealing a phone. He kept him on the ground, first mounting him and then taking his back, until the police arrived.
Colares shared what happened:
Returning from training this afternoon, we came across an alleged assault on a woman on the beach at Recreio dos Bandeirantes. I returned back to my car, and went to the girl to find out the situation, and in fact it was a robbery.
Colares and his friends then went back to the car and saw the thief:
Seeing that he was unarmed, we intervened and managed to immobilize the perpetrator just using the Jiu-Jitsu techniques.
We managed to capture the criminal, we recovered the victim’s cell phone, and today we have one less robber on the streets.
The UFC veteran doesn’t recommend that everyone ought to do what he’s done, but he’s proud of his actions:
I don’t recommend that unprepared people take this action, but today I became 1% better.
