Roan Carneiro (born June 2, 1978) is a Brazilian professional mixed martial artist who most recently competed in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2000, Carneiro was the winner of the Battlegrounds MMA's one-night, eight-man tournament, in which he won three fights to become the champion, and has also competed for DEEP.
Mixed martial arts career
Carneiro began fighting in MMA professionally in 2000 at the age of 22 in his native Brazil. One of his earliest losses was to future longtime UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. He amassed a record of 10-5 before signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
In April 2007, Carneiro debuted with the UFC. He faced Rich Clementi in his debut and won the fight via unanimous decision.
After fighting sporadically for independent promotions between 2009 and 2013, Carneiro signed to compete in a one-night, eight-man tournament for BattleGrounds MMA on October 3, 2014. In the quarterfinals, he defeated Randall Wallace by submission in the first round. In the semifinals, he defeated Trey Houston by TKO in the second round. In the finals, Carneiro defeated Brock Larson by unanimous decision to be crowned the tournament champion.
In December 2014, it was announced that Carneiro had been re-signed with the UFC. In his return fight, Carneiro faced Mark Muñoz on February 28, 2015 at UFC 184. He won the fight via technical submission from a rear-naked choke in the first round.
Carneiro was expected to face Gegard Mousasi on September 27, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 75. However, Carneiro was forced to pull out of the bout in mid-August with an elbow injury and was replaced by Uriah Hall.
In May 2017, Carneiro was again released from the company.
