Do you have any heroes? Ataide Júnior , Minotauro Nogueira, Wanderlei Silva and Anderson Silva

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me, the UFC is the beginning of a dream, in which the ending will be me with the belt around my waist.

What was your job before you started fighting? I’ve worked as a guard, pizzaiolo (pizza maker) and as a field worker
