Biography[edit]

Early life and MMA career[edit]

Prado started practicing Muay Thai at 19 years old and made his professional MMA debut in October 2009. At the same year he participated in the Brazilian television program Caldeirão do Huck of Rede Globo where he restored his Ford Maverick 1975 and earned his nickname. After his TV appearance, he joined Team Nogueira and achieved an undefeated record of 8-0, with 7 of his wins coming by way of knockout.[1]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Prado made his UFC debut against Phil Davis on August 4, 2012 at UFC on FOX 4, replacing an injured Chad Griggs.[2] An eye poke by Davis rendered Prado unable to continue at 1:28 of round 1 and the official result was a No Contest.

The rematch with Davis, briefly linked to UFC on FX 5, took place on October 13, 2012 at UFC 153.[3] Prado received the first loss of his professional career to Davis in the second round via submission due to an anaconda choke.

Prado was expected to face Roger Hollett on January 19, 2013 at UFC on FX 7.[4] However, Hollett was forced out of the bout with a torn bicep and was replaced by promotional newcomer Ildemar Alcântara.[5] Prado lost via submission (kneebar) in the second round, and was subsequently released from the promotion.[6]
