    It has been a tough few days for UFC fighters in Brazil. Just one week after strawweight champion Jessica Andrade was robbed of her car and smartphone at gunpoint, in Rio de Janeiro, The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 winner Antonio Carlos Junior suffered a similar fate in Sao Paulo.

    In an interview with Combate, the 29-year-old detailed how he was robbed of his watch, a Rolex, at gunpoint, while he was sitting in traffic alongside a friend while on their way to a photo shoot.

    “I was going to a photo shoot,” Carlos Junior said. “We stopped at a red light in front of the JK mall when a man tapped on the glass with a gun. I was sitting in the passenger seat, all I heard was the noise and then I thought: ‘Oh, sh-t. I’m f-cked, there goes my phone.’ But the guy wanted my watch, which I gave to him right away. A police officer came from the other side of the road, pointing his gun at the thief, who fired in our direction while running away. One bullet hit the windshield, lost power and bounced on another car. Another bullet hit right between the doors, right in the middle of it. I was scared sh-tless, I thanked God that nothing happened. We were lucky we weren’t hit. It was a Rolex, man, it cost some money. It was used when I bought it, I had it for a while.”

    I had a rolex one time. In high school or fresh out of high school. I sold it to a big drug dealer who gave me a vial of liquid acid in exchange. Man that was a wild period in my life.
