Cosmo "Good Boy" Alexandre (born April 24, 1982 in São Vicente, São Paulo) is a Brazilian professional kickboxer, boxer, and mixed martial artist. He is the former WMC Intercontinental and WPMF World Champion. On December 5, 2009 he won WMC King's Cup Challenger Tournament in Bangkok, Thailand.

Background[edit]

Alexandre, who is named after his grandfather, was born in São Vicente, São Paulo and raised in Santos, Sao Paulo. Growing up, Alexandre competed in football and was talented, going on to play professionally, but ultimately chose to focus on a career in Muay Thai.[2][3] Alexandre began training in Muay Thai at the age of 19.

Career[edit]

Kickboxing[edit]

Alexandre began his professional kickboxing career in October 2004 in his native Brazil. In 2007 he experienced the highs and lows of the kickboxing world as he won the WMC Middleweight (160 lbs) Intercontinental Championship and the WPMF Middleweight (160 lbs) World Championship, only to lose them later in the year.

In 2008, Alexandre became a contestant on the It's Showtime Reality TV series. He made it to the finals against Sem Braan, losing via majority decision.

In 2009, Alexandre picked up his biggest kickboxing win as he defeated John Wayne Parr via TKO in the second round at Evolution 17: King of the Square Ring. He fought a total of three times that evening, winning the Evolution 17 King's Cup Qualifying tournament title in the process.

He defeated Nampon PKMuaythai via unanimous decision in the lackluster main event of Lion Fight 11 in Las Vegas on September 20, 2013.[4][5][6]

He was scheduled have his rubber match with John Wayne Parr at Powerplay Promotions 22 in Melbourne, Australia on November 8, 2013.[7] However, he did not apply for his visa in time and was unable to enter the country and so he was replaced by New Zealand's Brad Riddell who Parr defeated by unanimous decision.[8]

He defeated Mark Holst via UD in the main event of Lion Fight 15 in Ledyard, Connecticut on May 23, 2014.[9][10][11]

Mixed martial arts[edit]

In August 2011, Alexandre signed a multi-fight deal with the Bellator Fighting Championships, a United States-based mixed martial arts promotion.[12]

Alexandre had a disappointing debut in October 2011 as he lost to Josh Quayhagen via decision at Bellator 52. He subsequently rebounded with a current streak of 5 wins in a row (all in Bellator)- a TKO win over Avery McPhatter at Bellator 58; a decision win over Lowrant-T Nelson at Bellator 67; a TKO win over Harry Johnson at Bellator 73; a TKO win due to doctor's stoppage over Mike Bannon at Bellator 77; and a decision win over Josh Quayhagen, avenging his only loss in a rematch at Bellator 80. He currently owns a 5-1 record in Bellator.

Additionally, Alexandre trained extensively with Rashad Evans and K-1 fighter Tyrone Spong leading up to Evans' fight at UFC 133 with Tito Ortiz.[13]
