Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? After competing in jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai and proving myself a good fighter in both arts, I saw that I could be an MMA fighter and that this could be my job.

What ranks and titles have you held? State champion of jiu-jitsu in Bahia and Rio de Janeiro. Muay Thai national and state champion in Rio de Janeiro. South American Shooto champion. RFA champion. AXS TV Super fight Legacy vs. RFA champion

What was your job before you started fighting? Waiter, mason, boat ride crew, Muay Thai teacher - but all these were meant to let me get to do what I love, and that is to fight professionally.

Favorite grappling technique: Rear naked choke 

Favorite Striking technique: Head Blows
