When and why did you start training for fighting? I was very quarrelsome in my childhood and at school, so I started training very early at the age of four because a sensei recommended judo to my mother to discipline me.  And so I never stopped fighting. It's 23 years of judo and 16 years of jiu-jitsu.

What ranks and titles have you held? In judo, three-time national champion. Runner-up in the Pan-American games, runner-up in world no-gi jiu-jitsu, holder of the Big Shot MMA organization belt

Do you have any heroes? Wanderlei Silva, André Dida, Mike Tyson, and my tatami brothers who inspire me on a daily basis, in addition to those at home - Father, Grandpa and Uncle.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? The realization of a childhood dream and the construction of my legacy with my family.

What was your job before you started fighting? Office boy, judo teacher, bicycle delivery man and security at night.
