Kaue Fernandes is an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter and the current Middleweight Champion. He began his professional career in 2005, where he made his debut at a Brazilian martial arts event known as “Vale Tudo”. Since then he has become one of the most successful – and feared — middleweight fighters in UFC history.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Kaue started training boxing when he was 7 years old under Mario Resto Azevedo. He later discovered Muay Thai with Master Roberto Godoi at the age of 15, which led to him competing professionally four years later in shows such as Jungle Fight and Bitetti Combat before entering the UFC scene in 2012.

He quickly gained notoriety for his aggressive style combined with excellent striking skills – both offensive and defensive – that saw him win 13 out of 16 fights within just two years time! His first international bout was against American-born Tim Kennedy at UFC 178 where Kaue won via unanimous decision after three rounds; showing why he deserved to be part of this elite sport on a larger stage.

In 2015, Kaue fought Gegard Mousasi for the interim Middleweight Title belt but unfortunately lost via TKO during Round 1 due to an eye injury sustained shortly into the fight we must note that even though it ended up being a defeat, The performance showcased by Fernandes earned him admiration from fans around world who were impressed by how well had kept up with Mousasi until that point despite having been injured so early on!

It wasn’t long before Fernandes began racking wins again: defeating Danny Roberts by split decision (2016) followed by another victory over Nate Marquardt also via split decision (2017). This marked Kaue’s rise into MMA stardom and eventually lead to winning vacant Middleweight Title belt against Yoel Romero Palacio back March 2018 – becoming only second Brazillian ever have done so since Anderson Silva’s reign almost 12 years earlier!

Since then Kaue has defended title twice successfully: first against Paulo Henrique Costa August 2018 while 2019 saw him retain it once again versus Jared Cannonier . While many pundits believe there will always challengers looking take away crown from ‘The Beast’, some say they haven’t seen complete package yet—and they may very well right…only time can tell what future holds for this incredible athlete whose been making waves across sport ever since debuting all those years ago!
