Female MMA Fighter Betina Baino Arrested Twice for Walking Around Naked in Brazil

By C.J. Tuttle Nov 7, 2014
In what she called a protest for not having healthcare, mixed martial artist Betina Baino has been arrested twice during the past week for walking naked in the streets of Brazil.

The news comes by way of a report from Brazilian outlet G1, which approached the fighter while she was in the middle of her second nude walk. Baino offered this explanation for her actions. (Translation via Google Translate)

“I'm not naked, I'm natural. What is not natural is we do not have health care. What is not natural is an athlete to become a prostitute to survive. What is not natural is a prostitute who was to be rich without turning [tricks]. I think it's normal [to walk] without clothes because I'm healthy, I'm beautiful," Baino told G1. “It's a rant. In MMA, I had the opportunity to fight back because I'm ready to be there. I know what will come ahead. Now when I do not have the minimum requirement of having my government. Without security, no food, no house. So I wanted to make a protest calling for President Dilma. I do not know. I ask her to ask for our help to the folks doing the best thing.”

Following her first arrest last week, Baino was driven to a local mental health facility to undergo a psychological examination. Records show Baino already has a documented history of mental health issues that have previously been under medical surveillance.

Baino has a professional MMA record of (2-3) and competes in the flyweight division. After dropping her first two fights, the Sharp & Art Team member picked up two consecutive wins. She was most recently in action this past August, losing via technical knockout against Ingrid Iasmin at Samurai Combate 6.
