Bruno Santos (born July 17, 1987) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist currently fighting in the Middleweight division of the World Series of Fighting now known as Professional Fighters League and is currently ranked as #1 contender for the belt.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Santos faced Danilo Pereira on August 29, 2009, at Win Fight & Entertainment 4 for the WFE Middleweight Championship, winning via unanimous decision.[1]

Bellator MMA[edit]

Undefeated at 12–0, Santos made his Bellator debut against Giva Santana at Bellator 61 on March 16, 2012. Though a considerable underdog coming into the fight,[2] Santos would win the fight via unanimous decision, remaining undefeated in the process.[3]

He was then expected to face Brian Rogers on April 20, 2012 at Bellator 66, however Santos was forced out of the bout due to a shoulder injury.[4]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Little over a year after his win over Giva Santana, Santos was signed by the UFC and made his debut against fellow newcomer Krzysztof Jotko on December 7, 2013, at UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs. Bigfoot.[5] Santos lost the fight via unanimous decision.[6]

Santos faced Chris Camozzi at UFC 175 on July 5, 2014.[7] He won the fight by split decision.

Santos next faced Elias Theodorou on October 4, 2014 at UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine.[8] He lost the fight via unanimous decision and was subsequently released from the promotion.

World Series of Fighting[edit]

On December 31, 2016, Santos made his World Series of Fighting debut at WSOF 34 against undefeated Vagab Vagabov.[9] He won the fight via split decision.

On July 29, 2017 Bruno Santos defeated Rex Harris (10-3) in a middleweight bout at “PFL: Everett,” the second event for the newly formed Professional Fighters League bringing his professional MMA record to 16-2.
