I started training in Brazil for very little money and I want to be a fighter but didn't know how to get on the right path. I initially started training martial arts when I was six years old, but started thinking about it as a career in 2015. I am also developing my striking to a point where it is equivalent to my ground game. My goal is to make a good life for my daughter. I want to show her how to take advantage of opportunities and become a successful adult.
My family is very hard-working and instilled those values in me. I came in contact with our head coach Javier Torres and he believed in me and helped me climb the ranks of the pro MMA circuit which is where I am today. I am forever grateful for that.
