Biography

TRAINING: I am training hard every day!! My preparation for this fight is very good in both training and strategy! A lot of wrestling training with my wrestling coach who we call "Captain America," Eric Albarracin, and I always have my teammates from Team Nogueira training with me, and they are also fighting at UFC 153: Fabio Maldonado, Rony Jason, Erick Silva, and our leader Minotauro, so I am well prepared for Davis. I do boxing, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu training and I'm always working our strategy and the drills are properly divided throughout the week! It is the best preparation I've ever done for a fight!!

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training a little late, at 19 years of age. I realized I had talent and what I really wanted to do was fight, so it was then that I began to do more work in MMA. Soon after my debut in MMA, I met the Nogueira brothers, and I started to train with Team Nogueira.

What ranks and titles have you held? Dark blue tip Muay Thai, Blue belt in jiu-jitsu, Champion Ichigeki Brazil GP 2009, FCF Champion - First Class Fight 4, Max Champion Fight 7 - Rally Brazil, Champion Campinas Fight 2, Champion MMA X-Fight, Champion Fight Max 8, Champion Fight Mx 13

Do you have any heroes? The Incredible Hulk

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is my professional fulfillment of a dream and the chance to change my life and my family’s lives. Being in the biggest, hardest and most important event in the world is everything that a MMA athlete wants and I got it, and I’ll do anything to stay here.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I never got to attend a university. When I started training I had already decided to become a fighter.

What was your job before you started fighting? My last job outside of MMA was in security.
