Biography

TRAINING: I'm training a lot at Nova Uniao. We have 3 sessions of training on some days.

Thoughts on opponent, Leon Edwards? He's a great opponent. He's been the champion in the UK, but I will beat him.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training MMA in 2007. I needed money to keep myself training, and MMA paid better. This is what I want to do - keep training and fighting. I feel better when I train and think I'm getting better every day.

What ranks and titles have you held? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.

Do you have any heroes? None

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? It was my dream to fight in UFC and I worked hard for this moment. Now I have a great responsibility to represent my country.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I don't have degree, but I want to get one, perhaps in physical education.

What was your job before you started fighting? I’ve always been in the fight game. I have been teaching jiu jitsu.
