Fabiano Scherner (born June 30, 1972 in Tres Passos)[12] is a German-Brazilian mixed martial artist and Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. He has fought in Cage Rage, IFL and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Fabiano is a decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor, having won multiple championships on an international and world stage.[13][14]

Background[edit]

In 1999, Fabiano started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil with Carlson Gracie student Murilo Rupp. There he was introduced to Mario Sperry, Mulio Bustamante, and Luis Roberto “Bebeo” Duarte. Bebeo was one of the founding members of the Brazilian Top Team (BTT) academy and invited Fabiano to train with BTT.[15][16]

Fabiano received his black belt in a very fast three years and nine months. Shortly following this, Ricardo Liborio invited Fabiano to start training MMA and teaching BJJ in Olympia, Washington. While in Olympia, Fabiano began cross-training with fellow heavyweight Jeff Monson, as he worked to develop his MMA skills.[15]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Fabiano made his UFC debut against Brandon Vera, losing via TKO (knees & punches) in the second round.[17]

In his second fight in the UFC, Fabiano fought Gabriel Gonzaga, losing via TKO (Punches) in the second round. Following the loss, Fabiano was released from the UFC.[18]

IFL[edit]

After leaving the UFC, Fabiano fought against Gilbert Yvel at Cage Rage 17 - Ultimate Challenge losing via TKO (Punches) in the first round. Fabiano then fought in three other organizations in Brazil Before fighting in the IFL, racking up 2 wins and 1 no contest.

In 2008, Fabiano fought Roy Nelson for the IFL Heavyweight Championship at IFL – Las Vegas losing via TKO (Punches) in the first round.[19]

Post-IFL[edit]

Fabiano returned to action four months later against Journeyman Mychal Clark who submitted Fabiano with punches from a mounted position.

Fabiano then fought Tracy Willis, and was knocked down by an overhand right early in the second round. Willis followed up with hammerfists that opened a cut on Scherner's forehead and prompted referee Josh Rosenthal to stop the fight.

Fabiano fought Nick Braker on June 6, 2009 at Carnage at the Creek 6 winning via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 3:08 of the first round.

Scherner lost his next fight against heavyweight prospect Mike Hayes via KO (Punch) at 3:50 of round 2.

Scherner fought Scott Junk at Galaxy MMA 1 – Worlds Collide, During the fight Scherner landed an unintentional low blow on Junk that dropped the Heavyweight to his knees. Junk laid on the cage floor for several minutes before he informed the ringside doctors he could no long continue. The fight was ruled a no contest with the official end coming just 27 seconds into round one.[20]

Scherner was scheduled to fight fellow UFC veteran Brad Morris in Australia at Brace For War 6 on November 13,[21] but he pulled out of the fight due to travel issues. He was replaced by Josh Ogilvie.[22]

On January 20, 2012, Fabiano entered WCFC: Last Man Standing 2, a 16 fighter, last-man-standing style MMA tournament. After winning his first fight, Fabiano lost to the tournament winner Tyler East, in the final and main event.[23][24]

On August 4, 2012, Fabiano faced Anthony “Freight Train” Hamilton at SportFight 31. After connecting with a right and dropping him to the canvas, Fabiano continued to throw strikes until Hamilton gave up his neck and Fabiano was able to finish with an arm triangle choke, providing Hamilton with his only defeat via submission.[25]

Less than 2 months later, on September 17, 2012, Fabiano faced against the much younger Vitaly Minakov, losing via TKO (punches) late in the first round of the main event.[26]
