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 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 instead fought Luke Zachrich. He was victorious via first-round TKO.
Magalhães faced Trevor Smith on November 8, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 56. Magalhães won the fight quickly by knockout in the first round. The stoppage was not without a bit of controversy. Magalhães stunned Smith with a knee and foreced a referee stoppage with multiple follow up punches. It appeared that during the final flurry, several hammerfists landed on the back of Smith's head as he lay unconscious on the canvas. Following the match, Magalhães stated "I didn’t notice that," in reference to the strikes to the back of Smith's head. "His coach talked to me after the fight, said I punched the back of his head, but I didn’t notice it. The referee should have stepped in if he saw something, but he was already out from the punch and knee I landed."
Magalhães was very briefly scheduled to face Mark Muñoz on February 28, 2015 at UFC 184. However, shortly after the bout was announced by the UFC, Magalhães indicated that he would not be able to compete at the event due to a lingering infection after recent dental surgery, which would require additional surgery. Muñoz eventually stayed on the card against returning veteran Roan Carneiro.
