Biography

TRAINING: Training twice a day from Monday to Saturday

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training Tae Kwon Do at the age of 14.

What ranks and titles have you held? UFC Middleweight Champion, MECA Champion, Cage Rage Champion, Victories in Pride, Shooto, and Minotauro Fight, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.

Do you have any heroes? Spiderman

What is your favorite technique
? I love to stand up and exchange, but I also really enjoy fighting on the ground too.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? My team and I are very excited to fight in the UFC.  I'm training very hard to make my presence known in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
I'm currently working on my Physical Education degree.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was an office clerk, and I worked at McDonald’s.

•    Arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history

•    Undefeated in past 5 and ½ years. Reigning UFC middleweight king has never lost inside of the Octagon (14-0).

•    Longest reigning UFC champ

•    Title defense against Chael Sonnen at UFC 117 is regarded by some, including UFC Prez Dana White and Yahoo! Sports’ writer Kevin Iole, as the greatest MMA fight in history.

•    Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt

•    Native of Curitiba, Brazil – known for producing other stars such as Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Wanderlei Silva
