Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Santos started his professional career in 2006. Until 2011, he fought mainly for local promotions in Northern Brazil.

Jungle Fight[edit]

Santos obtained two victories and one loss in the organization before a bantamweight title eliminator match against Luciano Aparecido on July 30, 2011 at Jungle Fight 30, in which he won via TKO in the very first round.[2]

Santos next faced John Lineker on October 22, 2011 at Jungle Fight 32 for the Jungle Fight bantamweight title. He lost via split decision.[3]

Iron Fight Combat title and UFC contract[edit]

Santos faced Alan Barros on September 1, 2012 at Iron Fight Combat 1 for the Iron Fight Combat bantamweight title. He won via TKO in round one.[4]

In 2012, Santos has amassed a total of six victories, including a victory over Leandro Higo,[5] and in 2013 he signed with the UFC.[6]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Santos made his promotional debut replacing an injured Marcos Vinicius against Iuri Alcântara on May 18, 2013 at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold. He lost via TKO in the first round.[7]

Santos next moved down to flyweight and faced Ian McCall on August 3, 2013 at UFC 163. He lost via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28),[8] and the performance earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.[9]

Santos next faced Chris Cariaso on October 9, 2013 at UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields. He lost the fight via TKO in the second round and was subsequently released from the promotion following the loss.[10]
