Biography

TRAINING: I wake up, give breakfast to my children and I take them to school. I run 8km, work out on the mitts and bag with my Muay Thai master, and practice Brazilian jiu-jitsu with my friends. The next day I go to Nova Uniao for sparring.
 
Thoughts on opponent, Neil Seery? A good athlete and a fighter who likes a good fight, just like me.

What ranks and titles have you held?  State champion of jiu-jitsu in Bahia and Rio de Janeiro. Muay Thai national and state champion in Rio de Janeiro. South American Shooto champion. RFA champion. AXS TV Super fight Legacy vs. RFA champion

Do you have any heroes? No

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? I’m at the highest level of the sport.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No

What was your job before you started fighting? Waiter, mason, boat ride crew, Muay Thai teacher - but all these were meant to let me get to do what I love, and that is to fight professionally.
