Mixed martial arts career
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Magalhães made his UFC debut on June 8, 2012 at UFC on FX 3 against fellow newcomer Buddy Roberts. 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. However, Magalhães also pulled out of the bout.
Magalhães was expected to face Josh Samman on April 19, 2014 at UFC on Fox 11. However on April 8, Samman pulled out of the bout with a hamstring injury. Magalhães will now face Luke Zachrich.
