UFC champion Jessica Andrade went through a scary situation in Niteroi, Brazil, on Thursday morning.

Andrade was driving her a dark gray Honda HRV in Icarai with her wife Fernanda Gomes in the passenger’s seat when criminals stopped her and robbed the car and her smartphones, Gomes revealed on social media.

Andrade’s coach Gilliard Parana told MMA Fighting they are both fine despite the scare. The UFC fighter had car insurance, Parana said.

“In the end, we are just happy she and her wife are safe,” Tiago Okamura, Andrade’s manager, told ESPN. “With this kind of situation, things can go south really quick, so good thing it all ended up with just material loss.”

Andrade claimed her first UFC title earlier this month, knocking out Rose Namajunas with a vicious slam to the canvas followed up by strikes on the ground. The Jeunesse Arena, the location of her title victory, is just 25 miles from where the robbery occurred.
