EXCLUSIVE

UFC badass Polyana “Iron Lady” Viana is telling TMZ Sports exactly how she disarmed and throttled a man who was allegedly trying to rob her at gunpoint … and it’s VIOLENT.

Dana White has already heaped praise on Viana — a 26-year-old fighter with a 10-2 pro MMA record — but now, she’s giving us the blow-by-blow herself. 

It all went on Saturday night when she was approached by a man outside of her Rio de Janeiro apartment. Viana claims he pulled out something claiming to be a gun and demanded her cell phone. 

Worst. Mistake. Ever.

Polyana says she noticed the so-called gun “bent” when the guy touched it — realized it was made of cardboard (not metal) … and realized the only person who was in danger was the crook!!!.

“[I] thought, ‘That’s not a real gun.’ So, I got up and threw 2 hooks.”

“After that [I] just threw a kick to his face and that’s the damage you all saw in the photos.”

Polyana says those shots took the fight outta the alleged thief … so then it was just about subduing the guy ’til cops arrived.

“He sat where he was and [I] grabbed him in a rear naked choke. He tried to hip escape a little bit. [I] was afraid he had a knife or anything that could hurt [me.] So, [I] didn’t want to lose that position.”

Authorities showed up, arrested the man and hauled him off to jail.

As for Viana, Dana White – who’s a helluva smart businessman — booked her to fight a UFC 235 card in March.
