In January 2019, an incident occurred in Rio de Janeiro that brought Viana crazy popularity. The girl was waiting for a taxi when a stranger approached her. First, he asked Polyana for the time, and then demanded to give him the phone. The robber tried to threaten the UFC fighter with a gun, which turned out to be a fake. Viana noticed that the weapon was looking unnatural, and decided to teach the loser a lesson. The girl inflicted three blows on the man, breaking his face, after which she caught him in a rear choke. The thief demanded to call the police in order to escape the wrath of a professional fighter.

The robber was standing quite close, and I thought that even if he had a real gun, he would not have time to get it. So I stood up, hit him twice with my hand and added with my foot. He fell, and then I strangled him from behind. The blows were very fast, I think he got scared and therefore didn’t even twitch. Then he asked to let him go: “I just asked what time it was!” And I said: “Ask my ass what time it is!

In March 2021, former interim UFC welterweight champion Colby Covington refused to fight Leon Edwards for a standard fee, citing a very juicy reason for his refusal. According to Colby, he was very busy with Polyana Viana.

I needed to work on my sleeping cardio, that’s all. Nothing but respect for Polyana, she is a cool girl, and very beautiful. I know that some men offered her $1 million to spend time with her. Therefore, if you want me to get out of the same bed with Polyana Viana, then pay me $1 million.

Colby Covington

The girl's answer was immediate. She reacted negatively to the statements of the American. In addition, Polyana stated that she already has a boyfriend.

I have never given space to any comments or judgments about my personal life. But it’s not for me to judge the attitude of this man. I feel sorry for those who behave so low trying to promote themselves. It's disgusting.
