    Fighter Bio

    TRAINING: The structure of my camps is usually the same - twice daily practices combining drills, circuits, and sparring, with Sundays off.  I'm a late sleeper, so first practice is around noon, then I eat, rest, then train again at night.  Recovery time is critical between practices.

    Thoughts on opponent, Stipe Miocic? Stipe is an amazing champion, an incredible fighter and a humble, respectful guy.  I have nothing but respect for him.  Our first fight was one of the toughest of my life - he hits HARD.

    When and why did you start training for fighting? I started with Jiu-Jitsu in 2005, afterwards I met Dorea, who introduced me to Boxing

    What ranks and titles have you held? Bahia State Jiu-Jitsu Champion; Bahia State Submission Champion

    Do you have any heroes? Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira
