Biography

TRAINING:  I am doing the same things I have been doing – BJJ, boxing, wrestling, physical training, Muay Thai. I have been training twice a day.

Thoughts on opponent, Alan Belcher?
I have watched his fights already, not only because he is a great fighter, but because he is a BJJ student of a friend of mine and my coach, Helio Soneca. His standup game is outstanding and he has a very good ground game as well, a really solid fighter. This fight will be very important for me because if I win it will put me closer to a title shot. It will be a big step.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I began training many years ago because I love the sport.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt; Won Fury Middleweight Grand Prix in Brazil

Do you have any heroes?
God

What is your favorite technique? 
All kinds of submissions

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?  It was my dream

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

What was your job before you started fighting?  Worked on the farm

•    Trained by former UFC middleweight champion Murilo Bustamante.
