TRAINING: Monday I go to the gym for my physical conditioning. In the afternoon it’s wrestling, and at night MMA class.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started fighting MMA at 17, replacing my former teacher who couldn't fight, and I realized I could make my life from fighting MMA.
What ranks and titles have you held? I'm a world champion in Jiu-jitisu, I was elected the best Brazilian in my weight class, and I hold the Jungle Fight and WFE Platinum lightweight belts.
Do you have any heroes? Jesus is my hero but I like Muhammad Ali’s style.
Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? No
