Q & A

When and why did you start training for fighting? I began to train when I was eight years old with my father, who is here with me today. He was a professional MMA fighter and I always went to the gym with him. I began with the BJJ and I never stopped.

What titles have you held? RFA former champion, IBJJF golden medal, nominated for the MMA Awards with my helicopter armbar submission

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? A dream come true. Everything I’ve done since I was six years old, every training session, everything that I had to sacrifice is to be the UFC lightweight champion and be in the Hall of Fame of the UFC. And I will create a social project to help kids and teenagers through sports.

Favorite grappling technique: Armlock

Favorite Striking technique: Kicks
