Biography

Thoughts on opponent, Anthony Smith? I have been working my butt off during this year. Smith is a very good fighter, so it's going to be a good challenge for me on July 8, but I can guarantee he will face the best Cezar Mutante. I will get there in shape, with sharp technique, and ready to beat anybody in my weight division, not just him. 
 
TRAINING: We have been training a lot of techniques during this training camp, so this means  I have a large arsenal of weapons to use in this fight and he has to be ready. Otherwise, he is going to pay the price.

TUF Brazil 1 winner, Capoeira Master, BJJ black belt

It is a dream coming true. I believe everything you go after you can conquer. So always in my career I started to see myself in the UFC, and so it happened.

I was at the college studying to become a physiologist but I had to leave to chase my dream to become a professional fighter.
