Thiago de Oliveira Perpétuo (born December 14, 1986) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who competed in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Perpétuo was a competitor on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

In March 2012, Perpétuo appeared as a fighter on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.[1] Perpétuo defeated Joao Paulo De Souza via decision to move into the Ultimate Fighter house, and become an official cast member, fighting for Team Vitor.

In the first round of the competition, Perpétuo fought Francisco Drinaldo. Perpétuo won the fight via TKO (retirement) to move onto the semi-final round. Later, Dana White demanded that the teams be scrambled up and Perpétuo was sent to Team Wanderlei. He then faced eventual winner Cezar Ferreira for a spot in the final against Daniel Sarafian. He was defeated by Ferreira via KO (head kick) in round one.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Perpétuo made his UFC debut on June 23, 2012 at UFC 147 against Leonardo Mafra. He won the fight via TKO in the third round.

Perpétuo was expected to face Michael Kuiper on January 19, 2013 at UFC on FX 7.[2] However Perpetuo suffered an injury and was replaced by Caio Magalhaes.

Perpetuo made his return at UFC Fight Night 32 where he faced UFC newcomer Omari Akhmedov[3] He lost the back-and-forth fight via knockout in the first round. Despite the loss on his record, Perpetuo was awarded a Fight of the Night bonus for this bout.[4]

Perpetuo faced Kenny Robertson in a welterweight bout on March 23, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 38.[5] He lost the fight via submission in the first round, and was subsequently released from the promotion shortly after.[6]
