Alexandre Bezerra (born September 25, 1987) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist currently signed with Bellator Fighting Championships and competes in the featherweight division.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Bezerra made his professional MMA debut in July 2008. He quickly established an 8-1 record over the next two years while fighting in his native Brazil. This drew the attention of Bellator Fighting Championships and he was signed with the company in 2011.

He currently trains in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Daddis Fight Camps and at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu United alongside Roberto Godoi black belt and MMA fighter Wilson Reis.

Bellator Fighting Championships[edit]

Bezzera made his debut for Bellator in June 2011, fighting Sam Jones at Bellator 46. He won the fight via submission in the first round. He subsequently fought Jesse Gross and Scott Heckman and won both fights via submission and TKO.

In his fourth Bellator fight, Bezerra defeated Doug Evans via submission in the first round.

In his fifth Bellator fight, Bezerra defeated Kenny Foster via submission in round 2 to advance to the semifinals of the Bellator Season 6 Featherweight Tournament.

In his sixth Bellator fight, Bezerra was defeated by Marlon Sandro in the Bellator Season 6 Featherweight Tournament Semifinal via split decision.

At Bellator 74, Bezerra was originally scheduled to face The Ultimate Fighter: Live alumni Jeff Smith. However, Smith failed his pre-fight medical and was replaced by Matt McCook in a 157 lb catchweight fight.
