When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training in 2000, influenced by my cousin Gustavo Oliveira and legend Royce Gracie

What ranks and titles have you held? BJJ black belt/ Pan American champion/ Shotokan 2004 champion

Do you have any heroes? God

What is your favorite technique? Too many to list

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It means a lot to be part of such a high level (the biggest in the world) fighting organization. It’s the biggest in the world and it keeps me focused and motivated.

No
