When and why did you start training for fighting? I started fighting because my mother used to work at Marcelo Ribas' gym and one day he called me to train, and I haven't stopped since. I was eight years old.

What ranks and titles have you held? World jiu jitsu champion, State judo champion, Brazilian and South American jiu jitsu champion, São Paulo boxing champion

Do you have any heroes? I have Amanda Ribas, that I train with every day. She motivates me a lot and shows me every day that we can overcome everything and fight. And especially my mother, who has been through a lot of adversity and is always standing with a smile on her face.

What would it mean for you to fight in the UFC? My goal successfully achieved.

What was your job before you started fighting? I was a motorcycle courier
