Thiago Henrique Moisés (born 23 March 1995) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who currently competes in the Lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He has been a professional MMA competitor since 2012. Previously, he competed for the promotions RFA and LFA.
Mixed martial arts career
RFA Lightweight champion
Moisés made his professional MMA debut on May 19, 2012. He would go on to amass a 5-1 record, before signing with Resurrection Fighting Alliance.
Moisés made his RFA debut against Javon Wright at RFA 28 on August 7, 2015. He won the fight by a second-round rear naked choke submission.
In his second fight with the promotion, Moisés was scheduled to face Zach Juusola for the vacant RFA Lightweight Championship at RFA 35 on February 19, 2016. Juusola later withdrew from the bout due to an injury, and was replaced by David Castillo who moved up from the co-main event fight with David Putvin. Moisés won the fight with a second-round helicopter armbar submission.
Moisés was scheduled to make his second title defense against Zach Freeman at RFA 44 on September 30, 2016. Moisés dominated almost every round of the bout, winning the fight by unanimous decision, with scores of 49-46, 49-46, 50-45.
Legacy Fighting Alliance
RFA and LFC merged in early 2017 to form Legacy Fighting Alliance. Accordingly, Moisés was given the opportunity to fight for the inaugural LFA lightweight title against Robert Watley at LFA 17 on July 21, 2017. Watley won the fight by unanimous decision, with all three judges awarding him every round of the bout.
Dana White Contender Series
Moisés made his Tuesday Night Contender Series debut on August 11, 2018 at Dana White's Contender Series Brazil 3. He faced Gleidson Moraes and won the fight via knockout. The win earned Moisés a spot in the UFC.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Moisés was scheduled to face Jalin Turner on September 5, 2020 at UFC Fight Night 176. However, on September 5, 2020, Moisés tested positive for Covid-19 and the bout against Turner was cancelled.
Moisés faced Joel Álvarez on November 13, 2021 at UFC Fight Night 197. At the weigh-ins, Álvarez weighed in at 157.5 pounds, one and a half pounds over the lightweight non-title fight limit. The bout proceeded at a catchweight with Álvarez fined 30% of his purse, which went to Moisés. Moisés lost the fight via technical knockout in round one.
Moisés is married.
