When and why did you start training for fighting? I started BJJ at four years old. My uncle Naldo was a BJJ black belt and he had a mat in his house so I started competing very young. Everything else was a natural step for me.

What ranks and titles have you held? I’m a BJJ black belt with several titles. The most important would be BJJ world champion, BJJ South American Champion, BJJ Brazilian Champion, Las Vegas Open Champion. In MMA I'm the former Brave CF Light Heavyweight Champion and the former Samurai Light Heavyweight Champion.

Do you have any heroes? No

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It is a dream come true. I focused my life to be a professional fighter and now I`m in the biggest MMA promotion in the world. My goal is to become a champion.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I studied until high school but I dropped it and moved to Curitiba to pursue my MMA career.

What was your job before you started fighting? I had several temporary jobs. Security guard, pizza delivery man, salesman at a shoes store, bartender. But my focus was always fighting.
