Carlos Candelario is an up and coming mixed martial artist who has quickly become one of the most promising contenders in the UFC’s bantamweight division. Born on June 22, 1993 in Mexico City he moved to Las Vegas at a young age with his family. He started training in traditional martial arts when he was only 8 years old. He then went on to train wrestling, jiu-jitsu and eventually MMA when he joined Xtreme Couture gym in Reno, Nevada where he currently trains out of today. His incredible dedication led him to achieve a professional record of 15 wins (12 by way of knockout) and 3 losses during his career as an amateur fighter prior to joining the UFC’s roster in April 2019.

Candelario made his debut against Frankie Saenz at UFC Fight Night 155 where he won via second round TKO earning him “Performance Of The Night” honors from the promotion for his impressive finish over a more experienced opponent. Since then Carlos has gone 2-2 within the organization suffering two back-to-back split decision losses against Chris Gutierrez and Timur Valiev before bouncing back with another win over Geraldo de Freitas also via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 164 this past November 2019 setting up a fight against former featherweight champion Jose Aldo later this year.

Outside of competing inside the octagon Candelario enjoys spending time with friends playing video games and cooking Mexican dishes that have been passed down through generations like Pozole and Mole Poblano being among some favorites dishes which reminds him of home whenever making them.,He often donates food items or clothing items to those less fortunate than himself believing it is important give back whenever able too despite all hardships life may present us sometimes reminding others that behind every obstacle there are silver linings if you take away something positive from it all…a sentiment that strongly reflects on how Carlos looks towards life outside just fighting competitively..
