Three-time State of Rio de Janeiro MMA champion, three times State of Rio de Janeiro Muay Thai champion, Copa Guaravita de Luta-Livre champion and bronze medal in Brazilian Grappling Championship.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? This means that I reached what I always wanted in my life, to be part of the best event in the world.

Just high school, I didn't go to the university.

IVC champion
