Boxing and MMA training career
Early training camp and founding of Champion academy
Dórea started as a trainer in 1988, after the decease of his boxing trainer. He decided to open a training camp on his garage, just for practicing. At 1990, he founded the academy Champion (Academia Champion/Champion Team). It began to grow over the years and quickly gained the fame of being the root to many of the greatest Brazilian boxers.
Trainer titles: Boxing and MMA world titles and olympic medal
Dórea was the first trainer of Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira (Minotauro), but in 1994 he left to the United States to practice and teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and was distant during the earning of his RINGS and Pride FC titles. Dórea asked to Nogueira come back to train with him only after 2002. Nogueira later won the UFC Interim Heavyweight Championship.
As a Nogueira's partner, Junior dos Santos (Cigano) was also trained by Dórea for all of his UFC bouts, including his victory over Cain Velasquez for the Heavyweight championship and all title defenses.
Dórea was also the boxing coach for Team dos Santos in The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos, for Team Vitor in The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil and for Team Nogueira in The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2.
