Caio Magalhães (born December 14, 1987) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist, currently fighting in the Middleweight division for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Magalhães made his UFC debut on June 8, 2012 at UFC on FX 3 against fellow newcomer Buddy Roberts.[1] He was outstruck throughout the fight by the much faster Roberts and was having significant difficulties trying to take Roberts down as he was fatigued. Magalhães lost a unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).

Magalhães was expected to face Michael Kuiper as an injury replacement for Kuiper's original opponent Thiago Perpetuo on January 19, 2013 at UFC on FX 7.[2] However, Magalhães also pulled out of the bout.[3]

Magalhães fought Karlos Vemola on June 8, 2013 at UFC on Fuel TV 10.[4] Despite losing the first round badly, he rallied back to win the fight via rear-naked choke submission in the second round.

Magalhães next faced Nick Ring on December 7, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 33.[5] He won the back-and-forth fight via unanimous decision.

Magalhães was expected to face Josh Samman on April 19, 2014 at UFC on Fox 11.[6] However on April 8, Samman pulled out of the bout with a hamstring injury.[7] Magalhães will now face Luke Zachrich.[8]
