Biography[edit]

Early life and mixed martial arts career[edit]

Genair was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is the son of a modest family and longtime resident of the Complexo do Alemão (German's Complex).

At 2003 he started practicing Luta Livre, training alongside Pedro Rizzo, Ebenezer Fontes Braga and others. At 2007 he began in Freestyle wrestling and quickly moved to MMA at 2008.[2] In his first nine bouts, he fought mainly for organizations in his home state. At 2010 he won four straight bouts (achieving a record of 10–3) and subsequently signed with Bellator Fighting Championships.

Bellator Fighting Championships[edit]

Genair made his debut at Bellator 46 against Marlon Sandro in the quarterfinal match of the Bellator Fighting Championships: 2011 Summer Series Featherweight Tournament. He lost via split decision (30-27 Sandro, 29-28 Genair and 29-28 Sandro).[3]

At Bellator 52, Genair faced Bryan Goldsby. On the day of the weight-ins for the fight, Genair did not make the 145 lb weight limit. The fighters have agreed to fight at a catchweight of 150 lb and Genair lost 20% of his purse.[4] He won the bout via submission in the first round.

At Bellator 60, Genair was expected to face Alexandre Bezerra in the opening round of the Bellator Fighting Championships: Season Six Featherweight Tournament. However, once again he failed to make weight and instead faced Bobby Reardanz in a catchweight bout of 148 lb.[5] He defeated Reardanz via TKO in the third round.

At Bellator 88, Genair faced Alexandre Bezerra in the opening round of the Bellator Fighting Championships: Season Eight Featherweight Tournament. He lost via submission in the first round.[6]
