When and why did you start training to become a fighter? I started training at the age of 23. I started with kickboxing, but there were far too many rules, so I chose MMA instead.

What ranks and titles have you held? 3 times Brasilia kickboxing champion, Jungle Fight lightweight champion. Black belt in kickboxing, brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu

Do you have any heroes? Ataide Júnior , Minotauro Nogueira, Wanderlei Silva and Anderson Silva

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? For me, the UFC is the beginning of a dream, in which the ending will be me with the belt around my waist.

What was your job before you started fighting? I’ve worked as a guard, pizzaiolo (pizza maker) and as a field worker

Favorite grappling technique: arm triangle
