Figueiredo holds a lot of records to his name, prominently the title of the current UFC Flyweight Champion. Apart from that, the Brazilian has also won the 57 kg Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Northeast Brazil championship.
The 32-year-old champion had definitely made a mark for himself in the sport and all this won’t have been possible without the tremendous support he gets from his wife and his family. The Brazilian champion has been quite vocal about his personal life and dedicates all his victories to his family and wife.
The Brazilian fighter has quickly risen to the top of the flyweight division and one of the biggest support systems for him is his wife, Bruno Moraes. The God of war is one of the most dangerous fighters inside the octagon, but with his personal life, he is very humble.
Deus da Guerra is married to his long-term girlfriend, Bruno Moraes. The couple tied the knot in a private lavish ceremony which was attended by their close friends and family.
The couple gave birth to their son Benicio in March 2019, and the Brazilian fighter has never shied away from showering his love for him. This is what the 32-year-old said in one of his interviews with FanSided:-
“I just think about making a better life for my family, I’m gonna be proud for my country. But the most important, without MMA-UFC, is changing the lives of the people [in it].
“This sport is a great way to have a better life. I think about my family–the struggle I’ve had in my life. I feel so powerful. This makes me powerful. My family, my background. I want to show that everybody in the world can do it.”
The Brazilian fighter comes from a very humble background. He used to help his father at an animal farm until he was thirteen years old. The champion has seen struggles and has always appreciated his family for all the support they have provided continuously.
“I was really happy when I signed with the UFC,” “It really started to change my life. And when I signed my second contract I started to focus on being the champion. Because I beat the first three guys too easily. Even on the second contract, my family felt I could fight for the belt.
“The UFC changed my life. I grew up on a farm in the islands in the extreme north of Brazil. The UFC has been amazing. When I beat everyone so easy I said, ‘Now I want to be the champion.’ Everything is coming at the right time.”
The Brazilian fighter is all geared up for his upcoming fight at UFC 255 against Alex Perez. With his hard work combined with the care he gets from his family, Figueiredo will definitely make a mark in the history of UFC.
