Diego Ferreira is an accomplished mixed martial arts fighter currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born and raised in Goiania, Brazil, Diego began learning Brazilian jiu-jitsu from a young age. He quickly developed into a talented MMA practitioner and has since gone on to become one of the top fighters in the lightweight division.

Before joining UFC, Diego had achieved success at lower levels of competition. He went undefeated as an amateur, winning seven matches before becoming a professional fighter. After turning professional, he joined Jungle Fight promotion where he was able to hone his skills further and eventually earn himself a spot on UFC’s roster.

Since joining UFC in 2014, Diego has consistently shown why many consider him to be one of the most formidable fighters currently competing within the organization. In his debut fight against Ramsey Nijem at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Edgar vs Team Penn Finale event, Diego earned himself his first win by way of submission due to rear naked choke just two minutes into the second round; immediately making it clear that he was someone capable of delivering when pressure mounted during fights.

At 31 years old and with over eleven years experience as an active professional MMA fighter under his belt – there’s no question that Diego continues to remain amongst some of the best talent found within UFC’s lightweight division today; having taken part in several memorable bouts including his 2018 victory against Franciso Trinaldo which earned him “Performance Of The Night” honors at Sao Paulo – Brazil event hosted by The Ultimate Fighting Championship organization that same year.

Throughout all this time spent inside cage or Octagon – however you’d like too refer it -Ferriera continued displaying impressive technique while getting better with each fight; showcasing powerful striking along with superior ground game capabilities which have helped him secure total 15 wins out 10 losses thus far while rank tenth overall within UFC rankings for Lightweight category accordingto official rankings put up my Mixed Martial Arts governing body .

As far as future plans go , Diegos goals are quite simple ; continue improving upon game even further & gain higher visibility among casual fans by securing more victories inside octagon ..Hopefully helping bring recognition well deserved attention upon hometown country Brazil for its martial art prowess & culture back home .
