Biography

TRAINING: Practice at Kings MMA with Master Rafael Cordeiro has been one of the best technical training camps I've ever had, and I’ve been working with many high-level athletes. I trained jiu-jitsu with Rafael Mendes, a great talent in the gentle art, and he surprised me with his technique and his system. I also had a great evolution in wrestling, where I received the guidance of coach Jacob Harman. I feel complete, but I know that the work is not over. We have a long walk and this fight will be the first step.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I turned pro in 2005. I love the competition.

What ranks and titles have you held? Jungle Fight Champion
 
Do you have any heroes? God.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It’s the realization of a dream.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No.

If any, list ranks in any martial arts styles: Black belt in judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
