When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2008 as a child. Over time I've been falling more and more in love because I saw a way out of the poor reality of my community and to be someone in life through sport.
Do you have any heroes? My heroes are my mother, who always struggled to raise me and my brother alone. And my uncle Ademar, who made me think like a great man, and my friends who always helped me.
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? Fighting in the UFC, for me, is my childhood dream to come true and change the lives of my entire family, to be a mirror for all the children in my community and show them that they don't need to deal in drugs or choose the world of drugs to be someone, and show that if I can make it to the UFC, they can also make their dreams come true.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I stopped in the 2nd high school year.
What was your job before you started fighting? I worked at the age of 10 carrying baskets and food for the stallholders at the fair. At the age of 11, I spent three years working in a bicycle repair shop as a rubber repairman, then as a street vendor of snacks and juices, pedaling on top of a cargo bike.
